What is Supply Nation? 

Supply Nation is Australia’s leading database of verified Indigenous businesses. Their mission is to provide opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses to grow and thrive. By joining Supply Nation, we are supporting the economic empowerment of Indigenous communities and enhancing our corporate social responsibility efforts. 

Why This Matters 

PMA CEO, Justin Johansen reflected on why PMA’s membership of Supply Nation is a crucial step for the company,

“Our membership with Supply Nation reinforces our commitment to diversity both within our workforce and procurement processes. Since the inception of PMA, our team has been driven by a deep respect for the land and our pristine waterways, representing a deep bond with the values of our First Nations communities.” 

Johansen continued,

“Our membership with Supply Nation aligns perfectly with PMA’s core values of Respect, Teamwork, Service, and Safety. This partnership will allow us to diversify our supply chain while contributing positively to the broader community by providing opportunities to Indigenous businesses.”

What to Expect 

As part of our commitment, we will: 

  • Increase Collaboration: Work closely with Supply Nation to identify potential Indigenous suppliers that align with our needs and values. 
  • Offer Training and Workshops: Provide opportunities for our staff to participate in training sessions and workshops focused on working effectively with Indigenous businesses. 
  • Ensure Reporting and Accountability: Regularly report on our progress and achievements in integrating Indigenous suppliers into our procurement processes. 

Our membership with Supply Nation provides opportunities for more of our staff to be involved in initiatives designed to promote greater inclusion of Indigenous peoples. 

Supply Nation Chief Executive Officer, Kate Russell, said, “We are delighted to welcome Pipe Management Australia as a member of Supply Nation and look forward to working with them to develop their supplier diversity footprint.”
