Carbon Neutral Adelaide – A partnership for our future

Carbon Neutral Adelaide is an initiative of the State Government and Adelaide City Council to make Adelaide the world’s first carbon neutral city. The University of Adelaide became the first founding partner in 2016, and remains the largest institution to support the initiative. The partnership is a commitment to work together to create a sustainable future for South Australia, where innovation is encouraged and low-carbon solutions are showcased. Through teaching, research and operations, the University is working to make this vision a reality with resources and support for entrepreneurs, collaborative working groups and $14.4M of investment in campus sustainability improvements.
