Carbon Neutral Adelaide Policy and Strategy
The Government of South Australia and the City of Adelaide have a shared vision for Adelaide to be the world’s first carbon neutral city. The City of Adelaide is working closely with the Government towards this goal.
This close collaboration between two tiers of government is significant and has been formalised through two mechanisms:
• The joint signing of the Compact of Mayors by Council and the Compact of States and Regions by the Premier, the first such pairing in Australia of these two important international networks
• A Sector Agreement under the Climate Change and Greenhouse Emissions Reduction Act 2007.
Our shared vision statement outlines what Carbon Neutral Adelaide will look like and how we intend to make it a reality.
The Carbon Neutral Adelaide – Foundation Report provides further information about City carbon emissions from 2007 to 2050.
Our Carbon Neutral Strategy 2015-2025 and joint Carbon Neutral Adelaide Action Plan 2016-2021 with the Government of South Australia, details our aspiration for Adelaide to be the world’s first carbon neutral city.
