How will we make the City of Adelaide carbon neutral?

To make the City of Adelaide carbon neutral, we need to rapidly reduce carbon emissions.

Adelaide had total emissions of over 951,000 tonnes in 2015. These were made up of:

  • 60% electricity and gas
  • 35% transport
  • 5% waste disposal to landfill

To rapidly reduce these emissions, we have a five year Action Plan.

What are we aiming for?

The Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnerships Program aims to achieve:

  • one million square metres of city floor space committed to the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnerships Program by 2020
  • one thousand businesses, institutions and individuals involved in the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnerships Program by 2020
  • the community feeling well-informed and supported to reduce their own carbon emissions.

“Adelaide can only become carbon neutral if we all work together - the key to achieving our vision lies in partnering with business and community leaders to tap into creativity, research and technical knowledge and innovation to be found in our community.”
