NSW Climate Change Fund Annual Reports

Climate Change Fund Annual Report

The Minister for Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Heritage reports annually to the NSW Parliament on achievements under the Climate Change Fund (CCF). The CCF is one way the NSW Government is working to minimise and mitigate the effects of climate change. 

The Climate Change Fund Annual Report demonstrates the impact of the CCF and shares inspiring stories of action. 

The Office of Energy and Climate Change prepares the annual report each year according to requirements of section 34H of the Energy and Utilities Administration Act 1987. Activities under the fund are reported for each financial year of operation.

The annual reports provide information on fund allocations and anticipated benefits, with reference to the fund’s long-term outcomes.
