I am pleased to present the Clean Energy Regulator's Corporate Plan for 2016–17 to 2019–20. This is our third corporate plan. It builds on the strong foundations set out in previous plans and demonstrates how far we have come in the short period since the agency was established.
The corporate plan articulates how we will continue to mature our capabilities and measure our performance against our objectives, to realise our purpose of accelerating carbon abatement for Australia.
The plan outlines the Clean Energy Regulator's regulatory posture, which embeds our risk appetite in our approach to compliance, education and enforcement. This risk-based approach to the administration of our schemes allows us to deploy our resources judiciously with an eye to both efficiency and effectiveness. Our risk management framework establishes a common understanding of the context in which all our operating policies and procedures are framed.
As a regulator, our primary focus is on our clients. We aim to facilitate scheme participation and compliance with the law and to deter misconduct. As our schemes are evolving in a complex and dynamic business environment, we are open to learning from experience and observation. We adapt our approach accordingly.
We also collect important data about greenhouse gas emissions, energy production and consumption, and the deployment of renewable energy. These national datasets generate valuable insights that guide our own work and contribute to broader policy analysis and decision-making. Several reviews relevant to our schemes are scheduled to occur in the period covered by this plan. Their findings will draw on our data and operational expertise and we intend to play a constructive role in preparation for any future policy developments.
Our strong ethos of client engagement and continuous improvement has earned us a reputation as a capable and trusted regulator. With well-established processes, systems and expert staff, we are in a strong position to make the best of any opportunity or challenge that comes our way.
