Developing MENA's Renewable Energy Market to Drive Job Growth

Women in Clean Energy Business Workshop

Dates and topics to be confirmed

Governments across MENA are embracing a flourishing clean energy industry and as they set ambitious renewable energy targets, we are seeing a major shift in the transition to a low carbon economy through the adoption of cleantech solutions and necessary regulatory frameworks. 

Human resources will play a key role in its successful deployment, and the ability to attract and retain a broad and diverse pool of talented individuals bringing fresh perspectives, will encourage competition and support the sector to grow and evolve

According to EY's Women in Power and Utilities Index, women made up only 16% of the boardrooms of the world's largest utilities in 2016. The study also highlights that having more women on boards makes good business sense and improves the bottom-line. Well-documented evidence shows links between the presence of more women on the board and increased profitability, return on investment and innovation.

This Clean Energy Business Luncheon focused on how the transition to a green economy will bring economic growth, generate jobs, drive the growth of markets for sustainable products, technologies and services, and initiate innovation across the energy sector.
