Packages Group, being the leader in ethical and responsible business practices has committed to advancing SDG 5, Gender Equality and SDG 13, Climate Action and including women in climate-related initiatives and decision-making.
This involves creating green jobs for women and providing internship opportunities for women in the environment and climate-related initiatives. We have also identified a cohort of almost 40 women from across the Packages Group to go through climate-related training so that they can transition into green jobs from traditional jobs. One workshop has already been conducted in collaboration with ILO and Oxford Policy Management and three more are planned for the next year.
In addition, awareness campaigns are being carried out to spread awareness about the impact of climate change on women across the organization. A significant number of women have been included in the Packages Group Carbon Team and Energy Teams so that they can actively participate in climate-related decision-making.
