Becoming the world's first carbon neutral city highlights Adelaide as a vibrant, sustainable city, and will attract investment and create low carbon opportunities for local businesses.

The Carbon Neutral Adelaide Action Plan 2016–2021 is a blueprint for a bold vision, mapping the way we will transform Adelaide into the world’s first carbon neutral city. More than 4,000 people shared their ideas and expertise to make this plan, reflecting the high levels of both support and readiness to build on Adelaide's clean, green and liveable reputation.

Premier Jay Weatherill and Lord Mayor Martin Haese launched the plan in Victoria Square on Tuesday 8 November 2016, along with the first major partner Warren Bebbington, Vice Chancellor of the University of Adelaide.

The Action Plan outlines how we plan to make Adelaide the world's first carbon neutral city, through community partnerships and five pathways to carbon neutrality. Discover ways your businesses, institutions and as individuals can get involved to meet the target of 1,000 Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnerships by 2020.
