ILUA reaches Top 3 in the world

18 June 2019

The results are in, and while Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) didn’t walk away with the win, being nominated and recognised as runner up for our program internationally is still cause for celebration.

Nominated in the Governance and Ethics category, the Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) program was shortlisted for a 2019 IAPH World Ports Sustainability Award in March.

Kenya Ports Authority and Port of Vancouver were named the joint winners of the Governance and Ethics category at the IPAH conference in Guangzhou, China on 9 May.

People, Community and Sustainability General Manager, Rowen Winsor said she was proud of the program’s successes and believes the nomination highlights the importance of the agreement.

“Our progression to the final round of judging for the award is a credit to both the First Nations Bailai, Gurang, Gooreng Gooreng, Taribelang Bunda People Aboriginal Corporation Registered Native Title Body Corporate (PBC) and GPC’s work on the partnership,” Ms Winsor said.

“I’m proud of the program and the success it has had in our region, I truly believe it has bridged a gap between the community and GPC.

“I look forward to what our ILUA can bring to the community next, sustainability is a space that has so much potential and we’re really excited about it.”

GPC would like to thank the community for supporting for the program during the public voting period.
