First Nations Framework

Inclusion Matters

At EDQ, we honour First Nations cultures, integrating this knowledge into what we do to create connected, inclusive communities. Our Framework aims to embed best practices to build strong relationships with First Nations peoples, businesses, and communities.


Our Statement of Commitment outlines our vision for sustainable, culturally respectful places that offer economic opportunities for First Nations peoples.

Acknowledging Country

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Elders of the lands we work on, learning from their wisdom to create sustainable places for Queensland's future.

Our Blueprint

The First Nations Framework guides our collaboration with First Nations, focusing on Priorities, Investment, and Working on Country. It ensures we engage Traditional Owners, build cultural skills, use proper protocols, support First Nations businesses, and create meaningful opportunities for economic participation and storytelling. This evolving strategy helps us achieve positive outcomes as we grow.
