Strategic priorities

Strategy prioritises where efforts and resources are best spent, it drives decisions and holds management accountable. We are guided by our three strategic objectives to achieve our vision to invest in Aboriginal people and uphold our values which are both functional and emotional.

Economic development

What it means:

Economic development is critical for Aboriginal communities to overcome disadvantage. Economic development is about equipping communities with tools to create sustainable change, and is the priority of every project we invest in.

How we do it:

Our commitment to economic development is evident by:

  • Employment with the Remote Laundries project
  • Facilitation of project ideas through business support services
  • New partnerships
  • Alternative supply chains for community stores
  • Revised pricing in community stores

Ecological development and sustainability 

What it means:

Ecological development and sustainability means caring for country, which sits at the core of Aboriginal culture. It reflects the importance of land and sea and the impact it has on the cultural, environmental, physical and emotional well being of our people.

How we do it:

AIG strives to be innovative about caring for country by:

  • Decreasing the environmental footprint for our stores by implementing solar solutions
  • Reducing pollution to sacred land in Timber Creek by installing an environmental sewage treatment system at the Wirib Tourism Park.

Social dividend and community benefit

What it means:

Social enterprises are considered an agent of change and have a significant role in community development. They offer the community a sense of purpose, provide inter-connectivity, develop local skills and most importantly are driven to achieve social outcomes which are desperately needed to overcome disadvantages in community.

How we do it:

Every project that AIG is involved in must have a social outcome component such as:

  • Tackling skin diseases and providing access to facilities to wash clothes through the Remote Laundries project
  • Facilitating access to affordable quality food as a basic human right through management of community stores
  • Facilitating access to education through sponsoring educational activities.
