The clean energy transition is playing an important role in society and furthering sustainable economic growth. A just transition will require deliberate efforts to ensure inclusivity, equity and a human-centered approach to innovation. Women, youth and local entrepreneurs can enact real change in their communities and should be supported as leaders in the energy transition.
