Our purpose

At the Clean Energy Regulator, you’re signing up for a challenging and rewarding workplace. Your purpose will be to accelerate carbon abatement for Australia.

Our workplace

To support the growth of the agency and dedication of our people, we have developed an Employee Value Proposition (EVP). The EVP outlines our plan to maintaining a workplace which promotes collaboration and growth. Attracting, developing, supporting, and retaining skilled talented people is important to the agency in delivering on our unifying theme and purpose.

As part of our EVP, we have developed a Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan 2022-24 which lays out the steps we are taking in embracing difference and equity in the workplace.

We have networks dedicated to:

  • cultural and linguistic diversity
  • disability ability wellbeing
  • gender equity
  • health and wellbeing
  • the environment
  • Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • the LGBTQI+ community.

Our staff are the backbone of our organisation, they represent the broad and diverse background of Australian communities. We’d like to introduce you to a selection of our people working ‘behind the scenes’.
