Carbon Neutral Adelaide
Carbon Neutral Adelaide is our community’s shared ambition to work together and make the City of Adelaide the world’s first carbon neutral city. To achieve our goal, as individuals and as a community we need to rapidly reduce our carbon emissions.
As the world’s first carbon neutral city, the City of Adelaide will be a showcase for embracing the economic, social and environmental opportunities of responding to climate change, including the uptake of renewable energy and clean, smart technologies. Carbon Neutral Adelaide will provide a platform to attract new investment to the City and the State and create opportunities for local business, innovation and new industries.
Carbon Neutral Adelaide celebrates and empowers individuals, businesses and community organisations to provide leadership and encourage others to take action.
