Our approach to risk

The agency applies a risk-based approach to decision-making. Our approach to risk is integral to effectively administering legislation within the available resources. Our risk appetite articulates the level of risk we are willing to accept to achieve agency objectives and meet statutory obligations.

Identifying and managing risks enables us to:

  • streamline regulatory processes across and within the schemes we administer
  • target resources towards areas of highest risk, and
  • deliver the specific objectives of relevant legislation effectively and efficiently.

The agency has a risk-based approach that is underpinned by our risk appetite and risk management framework. The framework articulates a matrix calibrated to the agency’s operating environment. In addition to the matrix, a range of risk education and training programs support all staff in understanding how their daily work contributes to our ability to mitigate risk and maximise opportunities.

The aim is to maximise the return on investment against our purpose, by managing material risks and leveraging agency knowledge and evidence to inform decisions, processes and client engagement. Increasingly we are working collaboratively with other portfolio agencies to expand our understanding of risk and build compliance capability, as well as having plans and activities that reduce the level of residual risks.

To further support our risk-based approach, the agency’s Chief Risk Advisor provides assurance on risk management within the agency. We anticipate that improved understanding of agency risks and the effectiveness of controls in changing behaviour will improve over time. External subject matter experts will also be engaged to validate the quality of risk information and data.

Our strategic risks articulate the high level risks to achieving our objectives and are identified as:

  • The Clean Energy Regulator does not effectively manage its scheme.
  • The Clean Energy Regulator’s advice, insights and data are not of high quality.
  • The Clean Energy Regulator does not adapt.
