Everyone can be part of the community making Adelaide carbon neutral! Reducing carbon emissions in the city helps the environment and our economy, making our city a clean, green place to live and work.

There’s a free monthly e-newsletter on carbon neutrality where you will find out what’s happening, who’s taking part, and how you can get involved. We invite you to join us to play your part.

You can also take meaningful action to reduce the carbon emissions in our city, in your daily life or at work.
