Carbon Neutral Adelaide Awards

SEPTEMBER 2017. Being held for the first time in 2017, the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Awards will 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 will recognise the roles of all City users to reduce carbon emissions in the City of Adelaide and will 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.
