INDIGENOUS
OPPORTUNITIES

The vision for relationships between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander community and RWW Group is one of alignment and the understanding of significance. We are as a company proud and excited about collaboration between our communities and the opportunities this will bring. The RAP is the foundation for movement towards a bright and collaborative environment which both the communities, inside the business and those of Aboriginal and Torres Strait island backgrounds can enjoy.

Our electric forklifts produce zero emissions and you can’t get any more environmentally-friendly than that: There is no carbon dioxide emitted when they are used which is better for the operator, other workers and the wider environment. They only consume the energy that is needed for operation. They do not heat up, helping them to be energy efficient while working and when on standby and most of the electric forklift battery is made of lead, which is fully recyclable which further helps to protect our planet!

RECYCLING

Did you know hardhats have a 12-month life for the suspension system and 5 years for the outside shell. That’s why RWW has a recycling program to collect these hats and recycle and repurpose the plastic used in manufacturing.We have also partnered with Kurrajong Recycling Centre to ensure that we recycle as much as possible as-well-as support local Australian business, and their not-for-profit organisation which aims to meet the needs of people with disabilities so that they can lead a life of their choice. They are a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider and reach all communities across the Riverina Murray region. They offer local access to creative and social programs, therapies, short and long-term accommodation, community access, employment readiness and supported employment. Their business focus is processing recyclable household and business materials for sale to recycling materials traders and manufacturers both nationally and internationally.

At RWW Group we are constantly striving to become more sustainable by using renewable energy, offsetting the carbon emisions from our energy use as well as using our buying power to extend our impact.
