The EU’s "Equality platform for the energy sector"

Last updated: 2 August 2023

The European Commission is establishing an ‘Equality platform for the energy sector’ to promote a commitment to inclusion and equality in all its forms. Through this, the EU is embracing equality and inclusion not only as a core principle and a fundamental right, but also acknowledging it as a driver for economic growth and social well-being in energy policy and an important accelerator for achieving climate neutrality by 2050, as stipulated by the European Green Deal. The platform was officially launched during the EU Sustainable Energy Week in October 2021 and will allow a broad range of stakeholders in the energy sector to apply for membership to highlight their actions promoting equality.
