Further establishing South Australia's leading role in delivering a greener, more circular economy, Green Industries SA has launched, in partnership with private industry, Circular360, the Global Centre for Excellence in the Circular Economy in Adelaide.
Announced on November 3rd in Glasgow as part of the United Nations COP26 Climate Change Forum by Minister for the Environment and Water, David Speirs MP, this launch marks an exciting and important step for South Australia recognising the state’s position internationally as a leader in green industry development, the circular economy, recycling and resource recovery and, as the pre-eminent location for training in these areas.
This centre makes South Australia the number one destination for businesses and government across the Asia-Pacific region to see the policy and practice of a circular economy in action. The Global Centre for Excellence in the Circular Economy isn’t just an idea, it’s a physical location to demonstrate what South Australia has to offer, and to incubate and innovate cutting edge projects to deliver a greener and more circular economy which is not only good for the environment but creates jobs as well.
Located at Lot Fourteen, the Global Centre for Excellence in the Circular Economy is based in the heart of the innovation hub in Adelaide’s entrepreneur ecosystem.
The Centre will enable circular economy projects, investment, research and education through attracting commercial and academic partnerships into Adelaide.
