Momentum builds as 40 organisations partner to make Adelaide carbon neutral

Forty organisations have joined the State Government and City of Adelaide in their shared aspiration for Adelaide to become the world’s first carbon neutral city.

The Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partner Program celebrates business and community leadership in helping to achieve carbon neutrality by reducing emissions and encouraging others to do the same.

The initiative was formally launched by Climate Change Minister Ian Hunter and City of Adelaide Lord Mayor Martin Haese at an event on 29 May with founding partners and supporters.

"The organisations that have taken the first step in committing to the Partner Program are to be commended for their leadership. Their actions are just the start of a growing momentum toward becoming carbon neutral." said Minister for Climate Change Ian Hunter.

Community organisation Uniting Communities, food rescue group OzHarvest, architecture firm Thomson Rossi, environmental health advocates Doctors for the Environment Australia and Siemens Australia are among those that have joined the initiative.
