Becoming the World's First Carbon Neutral City - City of Adelaide
16:10 - 16:40
In a globally unique partnership, the South Australian Government and City of Adelaide are committed to the ambitious target of making Adelaide the world’s first carbon-neutral city. Its emissions have reduced by an estimated 14 per cent from 2007 to 2014 while its economy grew by 28 per cent.
Adelaide’s robust emissions inventory has been recognised, with Adelaide now ranked by the Carbon Disclosure Project as being one of the top ten cities in the world for climate change reporting.
Governments, business and the community must work together to achieve a Carbon Neutral city ambition. Consequently, the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnership Programme has well over 45 Founding Partner organisations and 1000 individuals subscribed to-date.
Businesses, universities, NGOs and government are all taking a leadership role in transitioning Adelaide to a smart, sustainable 21st century city.
