Queensland has a rich history and diverse heritage that has shaped our sense of place and forms part of our identity. We endeavour to avoid having an adverse impact on heritage sites as far as possible.
We liaise with community organisations and the relevant government agencies to find a solution that allows us to carry out our works without compromising heritage values.
Energex acknowledges the traditional owners of the South East Queensland Region where we operate. We follow the Duty of Care Guidelines for cultural heritage protection to ensure that we do not disturb Aboriginal cultural heritage during the construction and operation of our powerlines. In conjunction with the relevant Aboriginal groups, our field crews and contractors are provided with cultural heritage awareness training before conducting any major works.
Our activities may occasionally interact with buildings, trees, roads or other items that are valued as being significant as part of the State's early European history. Some of our own buildings and properties contain significant heritage value. We take care to avoid impact on any sites of cultural heritage value.
