May 24, 2023 – Government of PEI: This year, the Equal by 30 campaign is celebrating its fifth anniversary and today, PEI becomes the third jurisdiction in Canada to sign on to this global initiative to advance gender equality in the clean energy sector.
Equal by 30 is a commitment by public and private sector organizations to work towards equal pay, equal leadership and equal opportunities for women, and other marginalized groups, in the clean energy sector by 2030.
“Putting gender equality at the heart of a clean energy future adds momentum towards the province’s net zero goals,” says Environment, Energy and Climate Action Minister Steven Myers.
“Our Net Zero Advisory Committee is already mandated to be made up of at least 50 per cent women, but there is a lot more work to do.
“Lowering carbon emissions and reaching net zero will require transformational change to our daily lives, so we need diverse perspectives, skills and voices to reach this crucial milestone.”
