Why Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia Inc is supporting Carbon Neutral Adelaide

Nunkuwarrin Yunti believes that climate change poses severe threats to the Aboriginal peoples’ livelihoods, cultures, identities and ways of life. Aboriginal peoples’ beliefs depend on the land which is a major teaching from their ancestors. The majority of Aboriginal peoples have close cultural relationships with the environment and are often dependent on sea, land and natural resources to meet their living needs. 

What Nunkuwarrin Yunti of South Australia Inc is doing to reduce carbon emissions

Nunkuwarrin Yunti is committed to reducing the organisation’s carbon footprint to reduce costs and the impact on the environment. A Green Mob has been introduced to support new ideas, with some major projects already completed including:

  • replacing an old air-conditioning system with new energy efficient units
  • upgrading many of the lights to new LED lighting
  • reducing the size of the transport fleet
  • switching to a Carbon Neutral paper source and implementing systems to reduce the amount of paper being used overall (double sided printing and having access to large documents electronically)
  • introducing waste separation systems
  • encouraging staff to switch off lights, computers, air-conditioning systems and other equipment when not being used.

New ideas moving forward include:

  • looking at the viability of installing solar panels
  • using sensor lighting and more energy efficient lighting 
  • expanding the waste separation project to include more areas within the building and other external sites
  • exploring ways of automating equipment to turn off when not in use.
