Climates proudly acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and their rich culture, and pays respect to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Australia’s first peoples and as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and water on which we rely.

We recognise and respect that Traditional Owners have cultural, spiritual, and economic connections to land, water, and resources through their cultural heritage and relationship with Country. We also recognise the ongoing contribution to climate change action and sustainability that first peoples in Australia and around the world have made in managing land and water over thousands of generations.
