Jackie McKeon

Principal Consultant | Carbon & Climate Resilience

Australia

My key skill areas are Carbon and Energy Management, Decarbonisation Strategy & Business Cases, Corporate Advisory & Outreach, and Renewable Energy Procurement (especially corporate PPAs). My experience spans a range of sectors including energy, property, infrastructure, mining, retail, finance and government.  

Partnering with organisations to help to achieve their sustainability goals; collaboration and developing innovative tools and structures support clients are central to key projects I have led, including:

Suncorp Group. This project involved partnering with Suncorp Group, a leading Australian financial services provider with over AU$96 billion in assets, to meet its emissions reductions goals in line with science-based targets and as an RE100 signatory.

Working with Suncorp’s needs and managing an innovative renewable energy procurement process and structure to deliver its 100% renewables and energy cost reductions targets, buyer-developer deal negotiations.

Business Renewables Centre Australia (BRC-A). Co-led the establishment of a national platform and online resource hub to simplify and accelerate corporate purchasing of large-scale offsite renewable energy (especially via PPA) to meet decarbonisation targets. The BRC-A is an industry leadership collaboration between WWF-Australia, Climate-KIC and the Institute for Sustainable Futures, and now has over 300 corporate and government members working together to maximise impact.

UrbanGrowth NSW (Landcom). Developed and rolled out  government organisation-wide sustainability standards and implementation for major projects delivery by partnering developers in greenfield and brownfield divestment site across Greater Sydney.

I have completed a specialised MBA (Sustainability & Renewable Energy) at UNSW Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM), and Bachelor of Science in Environmental Biology at UTS.

Sustainability is as the heart of my values, to the responsible stewardship of our planet – and it makes good business sense.

I spend my time with family, friends and pets – hiking, kayaking, and of course, going to the beach. Music (especially live music) and dancing are another big part of my life.
