Carbon Neutrality

Carbon neutrality refers to achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing a limited amount of carbon released with an equivalent amount sequestered or offset. For cities to work towards carbon-neutrality, a whole-of-government approach based on effective partnerships and actions at all levels of government, with strong supportive policy frameworks and incentive systems is crucial.
