How are we making the City of Adelaide carbon neutral?

The Carbon Neutral Adelaide Action Plan 2016-2021 set out 104 actions for Council and Government under five key emissions reduction pathways, to progress carbon neutrality for the city.

Two reports have been prepared on the highlights of the initiative:

Of the 104 actions in the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Action Plan, 98 (approximately 94%) are completed, will continue to be delivered as standard practice by state government agencies and the City of Adelaide, or have been superseded by other initiatives that will achieve similar outcomes.

What have we achieved so far?

There has been a 21% reduction in emissions within the City between 2007 and 2020. In this time, the city’s Gross Regional Product grew by 45%, and the population increased by 41%.

A community emissions inventory is maintained by City of Adelaide, and updated every two years. View an interactive dashboard of the community emissions from 2007 to 2020 to explore trends and insights.
