Coleman Greig in the Community

One of the core values we embrace at Coleman Greig is “community” and our ultimate responsibility to give back to the community in which we operate. It’s a value that is very important to all of the staff here at the firm and the notion of corporate responsibility is firmly entrenched within our culture.

Coleman Greig acknowledges Australia’s First Nations Peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and gives respect to the Elders – past and present – and through them to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We have developed an Aboriginal Action Plan that outlines our commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and forms a core component of our business plan and corporate responsibility efforts. As part of this Plan, we have partnered with the NSW Indigenous Chamber of Commerce.
