Fortescue Metals Group CEO Elizabeth Gaines says the pure-play iron ore miner favours "practical" measures to address disadvantage in Aboriginal communities rather than supporting the proposal for an indigenous voice to Parliament. Fortescue announced on 25 June that it has awarded two contracts worth a combined $179m to Aboriginal-owned businesses; it has awarded $2.3bn worth of contracts to Aboriginal-owned business and joint ventures since 2011. BHP and Rio Tinto declared their support for an indigenous voice to Parliament in early 2019.
