Polly Hemming is Director of the Australia Institute’s Climate & Energy program.
She has extensive experience working in policy, marketing and engagement roles in both not-for-profit and public sectors.
Her current work focuses on carbon and environmental markets, climate integrity and greenwashing. Having previously led the development of a government eco-label recognising voluntary climate action by the private sector, she maintains a strong interest in non-state climate ambition and the policies and regulation that interact with this.
Polly’s previous roles have included academic publishing, remote Indigenous education, refugee advocacy and science communication, bringing a range of perspectives and experiences to her work.
