The Australian clean energy sector has joined the global Equal by 30 campaign, formalising its commitment to gender equality by signing up to the equal pay, equal leadership and equal opportunity objectives.

An initiative of the international Clean Energy Ministerial forum and the International Energy Agency, Equal by 30 has seen 180 signatories worldwide, including all G7 countries and public and private sector organisations, commit to gender equity across the clean energy sector by 2030.

In signing up to the multilateral initiative following wide consultation, the Federal Government is working to close the gender gap across the Australian clean energy sector including by:

  • Creating an Australian Women in Energy Roundtable for industry to promote and share equality initiatives and policies which accelerate the participation of women in clean energy
  • Working across government agencies to build a Women in Energy Resources Hub. The Hub will include sample guidelines and procedures, providing small-medium enterprises with information on actions for gender equality within their workforce
  • Expanding engagement across domestic and international forums within the energy sector by championing diversity and gender equality
  • Driving practical actions towards equality-based policies within industry by sharing the Australia Public Service’s experience with flexible workplace arrangements and other efforts aimed at achieving the gender balance and closing the gender pay gap
