Chloe Munro, AO, an outstanding leader from the clean energy sector, has passed away. 

Chloe’s contributions to the sector are many: the inaugural chair of the Clean Energy Regulator from 2012-2017, Chloe also held roles at the National Water Commission, AquaSure; Hydro Tasmania; Victorian Government Department of Primary Industries and Department of National Resources and Environment. Chloe was a member of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute Advisory Panel, and a Monash Professorial Fellow.

Chloe was a mentor to Climateworks CEO, Anna Skarbek. Of Chloe, Anna says: ‘Chloe was always warm and interesting and insightful. We spent hours discussing energy market reform together. She cared deeply about good public policy and institutions, and she gave her time to sustainability issues and organisations generously. The world is richer for her contributions, and the poorer for her loss. I am so sad that she’s gone. I know I am among many who will miss her – and so will our sector.’

From all of the Climateworks team – many of whom shared personal relationships with Chloe – we share our sincere condolences with Chloe’s family, friends, peers and colleagues. We have been heartened by many beautiful tributes to Chloe from our peers, including Renew Economy, the Energy Efficiency Council, and Chief Executive Kane Thornton from the Clean Energy Council. And closer to home, from Monash University.
