Egis’s Chief Transformation and Sustainability Officer Martine Jauroyon has just signed the Women’s Forum Charter for Engagement to contribute to the advent of a post-carbon economy and a more inclusive world.
By federating the experience and expertise of women of all generations and from all continents, the ambition of the Women’s Forum is to promote the vision and voice of women on the main economic and societal issues of our time.
This charter, unveiled on 26 June 2019 alongside the G2O summit, constitutes an appeal to all public authorities, corporates and individuals to engage in progress on two intrinsically linked subjects: the climate and women.
Women are 14 times more likely to die than men during climate-related disasters and 80% of climate refugees today are women. This is why women must become true actors for change and be empowered to contribute to a greener, more sustainable economy.
The climate emergency is a major challenge in our Vision 2025 strategic plan which leads us to act both within our projects and in our internal operations. In concrete terms, this translates into an acceleration in the development of our low-carbon solutions in all our fields of business and the deployment of an action plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 in our internal operations.
