“I consider myself fortunate.”

“Over the years, I’ve worked on great projects,” Ghulam says with a smile. 

“These projects will lead and set examples on how to improve our environment and on sustainable living for current and future generations. That’s special.” 

As Senior Project Officer Clean Energy for the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, Ghulam is responsible for managing NSW Government funding to various clean energy projects and advising on implementing renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. 

“Sustainability and environment is of consistently growing importance for NSW,” says Ghulam.

“I work with people who, like me, are all passionate about sustainability.” 

Apart from contributing to a better and sustainable environment, Ghulam says one of the best parts of his job is being able to assess and provide recommendations on complex issues regarding renewable energy, and working with a diverse range of stakeholders. 

When he’s not working on environmental sustainability projects, Ghulam likes to spend a fair bit of time gardening. 

“I also have an interest in cooking, doing renovations and travelling,” he says.
