Promoting and contributing to the sustainable co-existence of the Kwinana Industry, the Community and the Environment.

Western Trade Coast Protection Area

Securing jobs and business opportunities for the future.

The Western Australian Government is seeking to formalise the Protection Area around the State’s most important industrial area - the Western Trade Coast (WTC).

While the long-term outlook for industry within the WTC is positive, ongoing lack of clarity around land use planning threatens to undermine further investment. Poor planning decisions that allow residential development inside the boundary put long-term jobs and business opportunities at risk.

Formalising the WTC protection area is an example of sound urban planning. It is supported by long-standing overarching government planning policies which seek to separate residential areas from industrial land uses and to protect industrial estates for long-term sustainable jobs and business opportunities.

KIC is committed to environmental leadership instilling the highest environmental values in all our members, thus becoming the benchmark for others both locally and nationally to emulate. To achieve this vision and ensure its sustainability for the long term, KIC will focus on excellence in environmental performance, build social leadership through community partnerships and demonstrate positive economic benefits through innovative environmental practices.


A key goal of the KIC is to maintain and enhance the community environment to the benefit of both the community and industry. Our aim is to build enduring relationships with our neighbours that are based on mutual respect and long-term commitment.


Kwinana industry is a major contributor to the success of Western Australia at national and international level. The relationship between Kwinana industry and the local community is strengthened by a shared environment and a desire to be good neighbours. Effectively balancing the needs of the community, industry and the environment makes Kwinana unique in the metropolitan area.


The KIC Education Development Program is about exposing high school students in the region to the sorts of careers that are available in industry, and working with them in a practical sense how they might aspire to these sorts of careers.
