Acting Water Minister Simone McGurk welcomed the newly appointed Water Corporation board member Dr Jemma Green, today.
Dr Green established consultancy The Green Enterprise, which helps businesses and the government to make decisions for a sustainable future.
She is also a Research Fellow and PhD candidate at Curtin University, a Perth City Councillor and a founding board member of Future Super, Australia’s fossil fuel free superannuation fund.
The board works in collaboration with management to develop Water Corporation’s strategic development and ensures corporate governance standards are met.
“I welcome Dr Jemma Green to the Water Corporation’s board,” said Ms McGurk.
“Dr Green brings a wealth of experience in the fields of sustainability and liveability, which are vital in Western Australia as we continue to be impacted by climate change.
“As the Minister for Women’s Interests, I am especially pleased to see a strong female achiever working in this industry as we attract more women and girls into science, technology, engineering and mathematics occupations.
“I look forward to the innovative expertise Dr Green will bring to the Water Corporation’s board.”
The board is appointed by the Governor of WA, after being nominated by the Minister for Water.
