Adelaide Launches into Action

Local leaders from industry, government and the community came together in Victoria Square on November 8, to celebrate the launch of the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Action Plan 2016-2021.

The plan is a blueprint for a bold vision, mapping the way to transform Adelaide into the world’s first carbon neutral city.

It encourages schools, businesses and individuals to pledge to reduce their carbon footprint and aims to have one million square metres of city floor space committed to lower carbon emissions by 2020.

The University of Adelaide was announced as the first major institution to commit to Carbon Neutral Adelaide’s partnership program as part of a plan to showcase Adelaide’s low carbon credentials.

The launch was officiated by Premier Jay Weatherill, Lord Mayor Martin Haese and University of Adelaide Vice-Chancellor Warren Bebbington, with some guests arriving in style with Low Carbon Entrepreneur Prize winner EcoCaddy providing low-carbon transport to the square.
