The Citizens Own Renewable Energy Network Australia Inc (CORENA) help non-profit community organisations who want to reduce their carbon footprint but lack the expertise and up-front capital to do so.
Why CORENA are supporting Carbon Neutral Adelaide
CORENA's primary aim is to help reverse the climate emergency in order to protect us all, and Carbon Neutral Adelaide is an inspiring step in the right direction.
CORENA are supporting the Carbon Neutral Adelaide program of action because they believe it shows how local governments can drive a prompt, effective, and tangible local response to the climate emergency. Globally it is cities and local governments who are taking the lead, achieving real results, while we wait on the major climate policy changes necessary at the national level. Imagine if every city and local government across Australia did the same!
CORENA believe it is particularly encouraging to see the Carbon Neutral Adelaide partnership between state and local government. It illustrates how state governments too can take the lead. In the absence of adequate national policies, within their own jurisdiction state governments can implement climate policies that better reflect the need for urgent climate action.
