ABOUT CLOVERLEAF

Cloverleaf's team shares a deep-seated belief that an equitable society and a sustainable future should be enjoyed by all. This comes out in our passion for Community Housing and Energy Transition projects

OUR MISSION

Provide affordable Community Housing

Our mission is make housing more equitable for vulnerable Australians: 

  • Australian housing affordability has declined significantly since the early 1980s. Since 1980, capital city house prices have risen 11-fold, while the price of everything else has risen by about 4.7 times. The ratio of average house prices to average household disposable income has more than doubled over the last thirty years from around 3 times to around 6.5 times.​

 

  • The University of NSW estimates the unmet social housing need in Australia is 437,000 dwellings while the unmet affordable housing need is 213,000. And as a by-product of COVID, many low-income Australians have had to move away from the suburbs and towns they've called home all their lives.

Decarbonise Australia

Our mission is to decarbonise Australia by facilitating its energy transition:

  • Without urgent action, the average global temperature could rise between 3 and 6 degrees Celsius by 2100, which would likely be disastrous. The Asia Pacific region is the largest emitter of CO2, producing over half the world's emissions. Australia's CO2 emissions rose by 78% increase since 1980.

  • Energy is the largest source of global emissions at above 60%. Energy-related emissions are estimated to continue to grow by 78% by 2050 if significant action isn't taken.

Meet our team: full of energy and commitment and driven by a shared drive to make an impact in Community Housing and Decarbonisation

Community Housing and Energy Transition were the sectors Sean Nunan, Cloverleaf’s founder, was responsible for whilst working at his previous employer, John Laing. When Cloverleaf commenced business in August 2022, it was to expressly focus on these areas. Sean has over 25 years experience structuring, financing and investing in social infrastructure and renewable energy projects which have had a high impact on their respective communities. A notable highlight was acquiring for Macquarie Group the Green Investment Bank from the UK Government in 2017. Sean was also previously a director on the board of Australia's second largest Community Housing Provider, Housing Choices Australia, and been involved in the acquisition and funding of some of the world's largest renewable energy projects.
