Green Industries SA consultation paper (2014)

South Australia’s businesses can only do well internationally if they are well supported and thriving in our domestic economy. Domestic success is often considered the fore-runner to success in global markets. In addition, building South Australia’s international brand and our clean and green reputation will also serve other export businesses well in their ventures as a market advantage, for example, in advanced manufacturing, agriculture, food and wine. Government’s role in enhancing the environment in which businesses operate is primarily to reduce investment risk. It does this through good regulation (or deregulation), government purchasing and procurement decisions and  by providing better information and data to the market, enabling it to make appropriate and informed investment choices. Government also has a continuing role to ensure the State has the capacity to meet future waste and recycling needs, and that this is supported in a strategic manner, matching other development, taking account of population increases and demographics. Infrastructure development provides opportunity for local businesses to demonstrate efficiencies and credentials to potential international customers. South Australia has the key elements to develop a ‘Green Economy’, and is now poised to capitalise on this. It has strengths in renewable energy, waste management and recycling, its educational offerings, water systems, and biomaterials.
