The Clean Energy Finance Corporation Annual Report for 2018-19 has been tabled in the Australian Senate, fulfilling an important part of the CEFC’s transparency, information sharing and regulatory obligations.
CEFC CEO Ian Learmonth said the Annual Report demonstrated that the CEFC was investing with commercial rigour and increasingly well equipped to address the challenges of Australia’s transition to lower emissions.
“The CEFC has a unique role as a catalyst for change. We invest to lead the market, putting our capital to work in new areas, building investor confidence and accelerating solutions to difficult problems. Our record of achievement gives the market confidence to follow our lead,” Mr Learmonth said.
“In 2018-19, we further strengthened our position as Australia’s leading specialist clean energy investor. CEFC finance is playing an increasingly important role in efforts to drive down emissions right across the economy, including in agriculture, energy, infrastructure, property, transport and waste.
“We recognise these achievements benefit from the continued positive collaboration of entrepreneurs, developers, businesses, investors, industry bodies and government and thank them for their shared commitment to lower emissions.”
