I am pleased to present the Clean Energy Regulator’s Corporate Plan 2021–25, which covers the period from 2021–22 to 2024–25 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, accelerating carbon abatement for Australia, remains our key driver across a growing range of activities. Over the coming 4 years we will continue to focus on creating a vibrant and efficient carbon market, and reducing time and cost impacts for our scheme participants.
The agency has traditionally had a role to manage the statutory requirements of the Renewable Energy Target, Emissions Reduction Fund and National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting schemes. We encourage scheme and carbon market participation and compliance, assisting participants to understand and meet their obligations.
In addition, we have been made responsible for delivering a range of new initiatives that will support Australia to meet the ambition of getting to ‘net- zero’ greenhouse emissions through emissions reductions and sequestrations. By working to provide confidence in the market through offering the systems, tools and processes to support the transparency and integrity of both supply and demand, we will continue to pursue our purpose of accelerating carbon abatement for Australia.
We understand the work we do relies heavily on our stakeholder relationships. Stakeholder consultation will be an important part of this process, with our aim to deliver for and be trusted by business. We will maintain our focus on working across industry, various levels of government, and with our new and existing participants.
Embracing technology developments is an ongoing theme for the agency, and aligns with the Government Technology Investment Roadmap, a framework to accelerate low emissions technologies.
We will continue to align our people, process and systems developments with the agency’s strategic direction, and invest in capabilities that enable our agency to be agile and flexible in response to any scheme, policy or business environment changes. 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.
