Freedom of Information Statement

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 9 of the Freedom of Information Act 1991 the following details are provided as part of the information statement of Green Industries SA ('GISA').

Agency structure and functions

On 1 February 2017, GISA was established via the proclamation of the Green Industries SA Act 2004. This legislation amended the Zero Waste SA Act 2004 and continued the statutory corporation 'Zero Waste SA' as 'Green Industries SA'. GISA's objectives are to promote waste management practices that, as far as possible, eliminate waste or its consignment to landfill; and promote innovation and business activity in the waste management, resource recovery and green industry sectors, recognising these areas present a valuable opportunity to contribute to the State's economic growth.

GISA is overseen by a governing board established by the Green Industries SA Act 2004. The statutory corporation is supported by the Office of Green Industries SA, a South Australian Government agency established under the Public Sector Act 2009.
