Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

At ANZ, we believe in working together to celebrate differences and create an equitable future where all of our communities thrive.

We recognise we have a role to play in progressing positive relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait peoples and the wider community.

Acknowledgement of Country

ANZ acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Australia. We recognise their continuing connections to the land, waters, territories and resources. We pay respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders, past, present and emerging.

We also wish to thank all the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and organisations who have shared their time and knowledge to support us in developing our Reconciliation Action Plan.

Across anz.com web pages and in our Reconciliation Action Plan, the terms Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Indigenous peoples or Indigenous Australians are used interchangeably. By intent, these terms refer to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia. These terms, however, do not reflect the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and ANZ acknowledges that many Indigenous people prefer to be known by other cultural names.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Our vision for reconciliation is an Australia that is unified around a shared history that celebrates and honours the unique contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a roadmap outlining ANZ's commitment to social and economic participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and respecting the world’s oldest continuous culture. Our RAP is monitored by a RAP Steering Committee to ensure we deliver on our commitments and achieve our objectives.

Our 2021-2024 Stretch RAP is the fifth plan we have developed in partnership with Reconciliation Australia.

Our artwork

This design, by creative director Marcus Lee, visualizes five outer shapes which represent thriving people and communities, reflecting ANZ’s five values of – Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability, Respect and Excellence.

The five rotating people shapes connect around the three inner concentric rings which represent a central community meeting place. Additionally, the three central rings reflect our focus areas of Housing, Environmental Sustainability, and Financial Wellbeing.

The coloured lines and dotted pathways extend from the people through to community where positive relationships between ANZ and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations can be forged to help shape a world where people and communities thrive.
