Why South Australian Museum is supporting Carbon Neutral Adelaide

The South Australian Museum (SA Museum) is committed to making Australia’s natural and cultural heritage accessible, engaging and fun, and has done for more than 150 years.

Existing to inspire wonder and curiosity about life on Earth in all people, the SA Museum is a custodian for the State’s cultural and natural heritage. Specialised data has been collected that contributes to the protection of endangered species, fossils, meteorites and minerals as well as informing environmental impact statements.

Given that climate change is one of the most significant issues affecting life on Earth, data from the SA Museum collection can aid in educating the community which in turn encourages further action.

What South Australian Museum is doing to reduce carbon emissions

SA Museum is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and engaging and energising its staff to support Adelaide becoming a carbon neutral city.

Building on existing programs to reduce waste, reuse material, monitor and reduce electricity consumption, SA Museum will engage staff to develop a carbon neutral action plan from the ground up.

With support from the State Government, lighting is being upgraded in three of the SA Museum’s biggest exhibition spaces to more energy efficient LED lights. An educational program including an interpretive panel will also be installed to help visitors understand the upgraded lighting system, provide information on energy savings and highlight other benefits of the new system.
