Mei Chew

Mei was in charge of a wide range of research and analysis projects within the Sustainable Corporates team, focusing on translating 1.5 degree Celsius aligned multi-sectoral climate scenario outputs into tangible actions and benchmarks for businesses.

She supported Climateworks Centre’s Australian scenario modelling by providing insights and requirements from industry consultation and research to enable practical applications of modelling outputs. She played a role in shaping and continually improving methodology used for various research projects, such as the Net Zero Momentum Tracker which assesses the alignment of ASX200 corporate emissions reduction commitments with a 1.5°C goal. She also leads the ongoing maintenance of Project Green Kangaroo which is the first ever forward-looking climate transition index using dynamic climate scenarios in Australia launched by BNP Paribas.

In her previous roles at Climateworks, Mei supported the multi-sectoral modelling of four decarbonisation scenarios for the Australian Electricity Market Operator (AEMO) to inform electricity system planning in Australia. She also redesigned Climateworks tools for the master’s unit Climate Change and Carbon Management Strategies, led by Climateworks at Monash University. She subsequently shared her expertise regarding this tool, as a tutor.

Prior to joining Climateworks, Mei was awarded a scholarship to identify opportunities to improve water usage for Saputo Dairy Australia. As a research assistant at Monash University, she explored the feasibility of green production of a diesel additive.

Mei holds a Master of International Business and a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (First Class Honours) majoring in sustainable development from Monash University.
