Industry Association for the Western Trade Coast

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

Home to industries that pump $16B into the State’s economy annually, and employ around 30,000 workers directly and indirectly.

Industry & Synergies

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.


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.


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.

There are two streams under the Education Development Program; the first is the iProjects stream, and the second is the Career Pathways Programs stream.
