Environment, Sustainability & Energy

Research suggests that women, especially those in decision-making roles, tend to favor environmentally-conscious and eco-friendly policies. The surge of innovation in green technology and energy-related products, along with the emergence of a green job sector, provides new opportunities for advancing economic growth, gender parity and pay equity. The development of green technology demonstrates the overlapping nature of environmental, economic and gender issues. Renewable energy and eco-friendly fuels, such as solar cookers, have significant potential to reduce the burdens of the rural poor, particularly women, and lift communities out of poverty. Policymakers need to ensure that women are provided with equal opportunities to benefit from the emerging green technology sector.
