Carbon Neutral Adelaide Awards

The inaugural Carbon Neutral Adelaide Awards celebrate the contributions by Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partners, individuals and households to our shared aspiration for the City of Adelaide to become the world’s first carbon neutral city.

The Carbon Neutral Adelaide Awards recognise the roles of all City users to reduce carbon emissions in the City of Adelaide and acknowledge leadership and accomplishment, including action directly within organisations, supply chains, advocacy, professional life and household practices.

The Awards showcase our City’s capacity to achieve and benefit from reducing emissions through technological change, entrepreneurial endeavour, sustainable business practices and high performing work environments.

This year the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Awards were presented by the Minister for Climate Change and the Lord Mayor of Adelaide, on Friday 17 November at the Adelaide Town Hall.
