Orica–Scott (UCI Team Code: ORS) is an Australian professional road race cycling team. Launched in January 2011, it competes on the UCI World Tour. The team is under the management of Andrew Ryan and Shayne Bannan with Neil Stephens and Matt White (who has returned from being stood down after admitting to doping violations with the US Postal Service cycling team) as Sporting Directors. The team ride Scott bikes, wear Craft clothing, and wear Bollé eyewear. The team has financial backing from Australian businessman Gerry Ryan who owns Jayco Australia.

Seventeen of GreenEDGE's 30 riders are Australian, and the team has an arrangement with the Team Jayco-AIS to act as its non-exclusive feeder team. The team also has a women's team and supports its riders performing track cycling.

In June 2016, ahead of the 2016 Tour de France the team announced BikeExchange, an Australian cycling retailer, was stepping up as a title sponsor of the team. Team owner, Gerry Ryan, had previously sought to secure further sponsorship after Orica announced they would stop sponsoring the team after the 2017 season.

The team was launched on 17 January 2011 in Adelaide. It has signed a full complement of 30 riders. On 6 December 2011, the team was admitted by the UCI to the 2012 and 2013 World Tour seasons.

Orica, a multinational company that provides chemicals and explosives for the mining industry, is GreenEDGE's title sponsor. The team has attracted SCOTT Sports as a bicycle supplier and Santini Maglificio Sportivo as suppliers of apparel.

On 28 April 2016, Simon Yates returned an adverse analytical finding for Terbutaline. Yates had been prescribed the drug to treat asthma, but a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) request had not been filed. The team attributed this to an administrative error. The team took full responsibility for this error, emphasising that Yates had no fault in the occurrence.

The team is probably best known for their online videos created by Dan Jones. Their channel has been successful due to their series "Backstage Pass" which gives viewers an insight into the team and the personalities in it. As of July 13, 2016, Dan has made over 400 episodes of Backstage Pass. The channel also had series such as "Bike Riders Can't Cook" and "Sunrise to Sunset" which showed fans a day in the life of a rider or staff member. The total hits on the channel is currently over 16.5 million. The most successful video so far was the teams version of Call Me Maybe by singer Carly Rae Jepsen. It has had over 1 million hits on YouTube and was also used by Eurosport to introduce the coverage of the 16th stage of the 2012 Vuelta a España.

Neil Rogers from Velo News labelled the video "Possibly the single best PR move I've seen from a pro cycling team in years!"

In 2013, they made a tribute video of AC/DC famous song "You shook me all night long", though they were forced to remove it from their official channel after a complaint from the rights holders.

In 2014 Dan Jones created #SKYvOGE, a series where both Orica–GreenEDGE and Team Sky took part in a series of challenges off the bike which was also featured on Eurosport's cycling coverage of the 2014 Paris-Nice.
