30 Jul ‘A greater focus on diversity, equity and inclusion will help, not hinder, progress to Net Zero’ – new report from POWERful Women and National Grid
To mark Net Zero Week and the fourth anniversary of the UK’s legally-binding net zero target, POWERful Women and National Grid have collaborated to publish new research looking at the diversity of people and talent essential for success.
Based on interviews with industry leaders, surveys of experts and a literature review, results reveal that net zero and DEI go hand in hand:
> A more diverse workforce brings skills and diversity of thought to enable industry to find innovative solutions
> Better DEI ensures solutions are fair and representative of society, which means consumer buy-in and behaviour change
> An equitable and inclusive workplace culture means talent is brought in, cultivated and retained more successfully
‘The Net Zero Race: The role of DEI in the roadmap to a net zero future’ also includes our recommendations on achieving better DEI in UK energy – to overcome net zero challenges and reap the benefits.
