Corporation of the City of Adelaide Carbon Neutral Certified

The City of Adelaide’s 2019/20 business operations have been certified as carbon neutral by the Australian Government's Climate Active program – delivering on the target established by Council to be carbon neutral by 2020. In the process of becoming carbon neutral the City has achieved operational efficiencies and reduced costs, that ultimately benefit our community and ratepayers. To provide transparency on where emissions are generated by Council, new carbon emissions data visualisations are available on the Council’s website.

Fuller Brand Communications Carbon Neutral Certified

Fuller Brand Communications, a Carbon Neutral Partner, also achieved carbon neutral certification with Climate Active. Fuller is a family company – not just family owned and managed but also an employer of more than 20 families. They strongly feel a sense of responsibility to contribute to a society that they can be proud to hand on to their children and grandchildren. As part of this global thinking, management and staff jointly decided five years ago to develop a sustainability action plan. Initially focusing on recycling and waste reduction, they moved on to measuring their carbon footprint, then committing to certification, which provided tangible goals and processes to achieve an even more sustainable business.
