Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton pays tribute to Chloe Munro AO:
“Chloe Munro AO passed away this week, leaving an enormous legacy. The Australian clean energy industry is mourning a leader and pioneer who had a massive impact on the energy transition and many emerging leaders and women in the sector.
“Chloe envisaged a clean energy future long before it became the reality it is today. As the inaugural chair of the Clean Energy Regulator, she established the foundation for much of today’s industry success before going on to play a wide range of leadership and advisory roles in the sector.
“She was a shining light for compassionate and strong leadership, particularly as a woman in an industry still dominated by men. Her formidable intellect was matched by her sense of style and a certain je ne se quoi. She received many accolades over a long and distinguished career, including her appointment as an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2018 and being awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Industry Award at the Clean Energy Council Awards in 2017.
“To me - and so many others - Chloe was a dear friend, a mentor and a great inspiration. Today we have lost someone special, but we will rise tomorrow to keep working toward the future she dedicated her life to.
“An extraordinary legacy left behind from an amazing woman. Thank you, Chloe, and farewell.”
