Women, whether citizens, mothers or professionals, have a key role to play to make the green energy transition just and equitable, closing the gender and social gap, especially in developing countries where that gap is most challenging, and women can be a major driver of change.

At all levels of society and across all the facets of our lives, women play a vital role in shaping how energy is used. As we accelerate the green transition, we must also be at the forefront of defining the most effective policies and sustainable solutions.

Women bring unique perspectives to the energy sector and are a vital source of innovation and creativity. However, many of us tend to downplay their accomplishments and abilities. It’s time for a change in attitude. Let’s work together towards a future where women are encouraged to lead and thrive.

Female professionals have many opportunities to tap into the clean energy transition. What women in the energy sector need to do now is to support each other, cooperate, exchange experiences and continue developing competencies and skills, enabling the net zero target. It is women, with their expertise and active engagement in the clean energy transition, who can make a real difference and offer new solutions to reach climate neutrality.
