Our Commitment

Greenfleet acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land, seas and skies throughout Australia and pays respect to their Elders, past and present.

We honour their deep connection to Country and recognise their knowledge and wisdom in caring for it. We respect that we are working with, and learning from, the oldest continuous cultures and longest standing land managers on Earth.

Climate action aligns with Reconciliation, and we will continue to listen to First Nations voices as we work towards a better future. Together, we can grow climate hope.


Working With Traditional Owners

Greenfleet plants locally native tree species at our revegetation projects to restore the ecosystems that would have existed prior to the land being cleared. We investigate utilising Traditional Practices
to enhance our restoration of Country.

In the following projects, Greenfleet is working directly with the Traditional Owners, restoring Country and delivering benefits to the local community:

Noosa Restoration & Reconciliation Project, QLD

Greenfleet is working with the Kabi Kabi people, the Traditional Owners of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast region. We are working with the Kabi Kabi Peoples Aboriginal Corporation and Principal
Project Partner GPT to restore over 900 hectares to native forest in the Noosa Hinterland.

Under a landmark Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA), this project will provide economic support via employment opportunities and traineeships on Country. The project is taking critical steps to protect our climate and the co-benefits of the carbon offsets at this project are verified by the Aboriginal Carbon Foundation.

Ngulambarra, VIC

Djaara are the Traditional Custodians of this land, on Dja Dja Wurrung Country, near Wedderburn in Central Victoria. Part of Greenfleet’s revegetation approach included the planting of culturally significant food and fibre grasses for cultivation and utilisation in traditional practices.

The species planted in these parts of the property include native Kangaroo Grass Themeda triandra) and Yam Daisy (Myrnong). Kangaroo grass is perennial, and its seeds can be harvested much like grain to be made into flour for products such as bread.

Kowanyama, QLD 

Working with the Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council in 2018, Greenfleet restored a combination of plants and fruit trees in Far North Queensland. The aim of this project was to provide readily available food sources to the local Indigenous community, that had been impacted by Cyclone Nora in 2018.

This remote region in Far North Queensland can experience food shortages, particularly when they are impacted by natural disasters. By enhancing the food sources that are available locally, projects like this can provide ongoing support to the community.

Within a few years of the planting, the trees were establishing well at this project.

The Path Forward

Greenfleet will continue to champion reconciliation and First Nations People through our
work restoring native forests.

We will continue to partner with Traditional Owners, seeking ways to honour their knowledge through our practice, and inform supporters of our progress in these areas.
