How does gender interact with the drive toward sustainability in the economy and society? How can we foster gender equality in the workplace?

Integrating the gender dimension plays a twofold central role in the transition towards sustainability. On the one hand, according to recent studies, women in leadership positions have been seen to consistently integrate sustainability in business and investment decisions further. On the other hand, particularly in developing countries, the consequences of climate change have a greater impact on women, therefore requiring larger attention.
