Female Climate Leaders at #CTS2023

On International Women’s Day, there is no better time to celebrate the incredible female climate leaders who are fighting for decarbonizing companies and their supply chains!

The CLIMATE TRANSFORMATION Summit 2023 brings together outstanding female climate experts for an online event you don’t want to miss. The theme this year is “Making it Happen,” and it will take place online on May 11th and 12th, 2023.

With 49% of confirmed speakers being female, this Summit is all about amplifying the voices of women driving climate transformation. And we are looking to bring the number up!

Why focus on female climate leaders? 

Studies have shown that women in leadership positions are more committed and effective in driving action on climate change than men (sources: UN Women & Global Gender and Climate Alliance). Female leaders assess risks differently compared to men and generally prioritize the well-being of society when making decisions.

And the impact of advancing women in climate action is huge. According to Project Drawdown, it has the potential to save 68.9 gigatons of CO2e between 2020 and 2050. That’s why the CLIMATE TRANSFORMATION Summit 2023 is giving female climate leaders a special platform to share their insights.

Bringing transformation forward

These experts include Paula Caballero, the “inventor of the SDGs”, Anna Rathmann, Executive Director at the Jane Goodall Institute, and Sonya Bhonsle, Global Head of Value Chains at the Carbon Disclosure Project, among many others. 

In partnership with Futurewoman.de, a network for women in sustainability, the summit also brings together Yvonne Zwick, Executive Director of B.A.U.M. e. V., Katharina Reuter, Managing Director of the Bundesverband Nachhaltige Wirtschaft (BNW e. V.), Olivia Henke, Executive Director of the Foundation Alliance for Development and Climate, Yvonne Jamal, Chairwoman of the Board of Jaro Institut e. V., and Lara Obst, co-founder of the climate tech startup The Climate Choice.

Sandra Broschat, co-founder of Futurewoman.de, says it best:

“The female perspective and expertise are essential in the fight against the climate crisis. It is the biggest challenge of our time, we simply cannot afford not to actively use 50% of the know-how. Female leaders have a key role, as studies show they are particularly committed and consistent in implementing climate action compared to men.”

Claiming the mic to save the planet

The CLIMATE TRANSFORMATION Summit 2023 (#CTS2023) provides a stage for climate experts from diverse fields and perspectives. By doing so, the Summit not only promotes cross-sectoral knowledge transfer but also recognizes the vital role that women play in the fight against climate change.
