Funded by the Federal, South Australian and Victorian Governments, the RPC employs a full time executive officer based at 19 Penola Road, Mt Gambier. The current Executive Officer is Dr John Kellas, who has had an extensive career in forestry research and development and forestry education.
The RPC's vision is:
A sustainable forestry sector providing long-term economic, environmental and social benefits to the Green Triangle region.
And a mission:
To provide a forum for cooperation between forest industry stakeholders in order to promote and facilitate sustainable development of the forest industry in the Green Triangle region
What does the Green Triangle RPC do?
The RPC brings together a range of stakeholders and interested parties (growers, processors, State and local government, natural resource managers, farm foresters, consultants) in the plantation sector from across the region, to work on issues addressing planning, infrastructure, education, training and promotion of forest-based industries and associated enterprises, (focusing but not limited to Bluegum, Pine, Pinusradiata, woodflow, biodiversity and land use exchange).
