The role of women in green transition is very big taking into account that, women are the leading persons in every household or at homes in cooking so can influence cooking methods especially those that leads to clean cooking. Women are main users of energy especially for cooking that dominate other uses at homes so they can play a role of leadership and advocacy for clean energy.

Women make up less than one-fifth of the energy workforce today, but suffer disproportionately the impacts of cooking with traditional fuels in developing economies. The energy transition needs to involve everyone regardless of its country, gender, or age and would require putting women at the forefront.

Women make up 50% of the world's population. We will never achieve the energy transition without them nor meet the 2030 Agenda commitment to leave no one behind. Women must equally lead and participate. If not we will fail in building a resilient, just and sustainable world with renewables at its centre.

Every sector must draw on its best talents and find innovative solutions for a carbon-neutral future. Women are role models. Story-tell your energy expertise in your daily life to rally others to think green and act sustainably.

It is the growing corps of strong committed and networking women all over the world and their creative quest for energy transition, fair access to renewable energy and efficiency, creators of enabling technologies , promoter and defender of strong legislation, citizen-driven projects and good administration which makes renewable energy really green and sustainable. Without our creative and professional energy, societies would not advance at all.

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.

We have seen global pushback on women’s rights and gender equality over the past decade and this is a serious social regression that must be reversed. Climate change further disproportionately affects women and girls globally, and their lives and health are already being impacted severely. It is pivotal to highlight women’s role in climate to empower us and make sure we are included in all discussions and decision making.

Women are leading efforts around the world to deploy the solutions we need to solve climate change and make sure that these solutions are long lasting. This leadership is critical to our ability to reach our goals and will hugely impact our future.

In the Green Transition, women shape a narrative of sustainability, leading with resilience, innovation, and a commitment to a thriving planet. Their ability to navigate complexities and contribute practical insights brings a unique dynamism to sustainability efforts. As a female leader, I am dedicated to fostering an environment where upcoming women leaders contribute significantly to crafting a more sustainable and equitable future.

Investing in the advancement and participation of women in the energy sector is not only the right thing to do, but also the smart thing to do as it is an economically viable business decision. Data shows that women’s participation in the energy sector, particularly as high-level decision makers, remains low. Therefore, I strongly support all kind of initiatives for women empowerment.
