Foreword by the Chair

a photograph of Mr David Parker

I am pleased to present the Clean Energy Regulator’s Corporate Plan 2020-24, which covers the period from 2020-21 to 2023- 24 as required under paragraph 35(1)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. This plan outlines how we are meeting our purpose and achieving our objectives, continuing to build relationships with our stakeholders and developing staff capability in the context of a dynamic operating environment.

Our purpose, to accelerate carbon abatement for Australia remains as our key driver across a growing range of activities.

We are placing a key focus on implementing relevant recommendations from the Examining Additional Sources of Low-cost Abatement: expert panel report (the King Review) that were agreed by the Australian Government.

The King Review recognises the important work we have already undertaken, including implementation of the Climate Solutions Fund. A key element of the King Review and the Government response is a more diverse and vibrant carbon market, which builds on schemes administered by the Clean Energy Regulator.

We understand the work we do relies heavily on our stakeholder relationships. We will continue to focus on working closely with partners across industry and various levels of government and with our new and existing participants.

Embracing technology developments is a continuing theme for the agency and aligns with the Government Technology Investment Roadmap, a framework to accelerate low emissions technologies. This work connects closely with the initiatives from the King Review Response.

To ensure we are administering the schemes efficiently and effectively, we will invest in capabilities that enable our agency to be agile and flexible in response to any scheme, policy or business environment changes. We will focus on developing our people, process and system capabilities in order to keep in line with the agency’s strategic direction.

The program of work we see for the next four years will be supported by capable, talented and agile staff. I am committed to ensuring we create a positive workplace with a strong focus on our culture and values.

I look forward to leading the agency and our staff through the rewarding and challenging work we will undertake. In doing so, we will continue to strive to be a practical, grounded, quick and commercially savvy regulator for Australia.
