Women in Sustainability Podcast

On the 8th March 2022 (International Women’s Day) Efeca announced the creation of a new podcast series: a platform for women’s voices in sustainability.

The 2022 UN theme for International Women’s Day, “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow,” sought to highlight the contribution of women and girls around the globe, who participate in their communities promoting on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, in order to build a more sustainable future for all.

At Efeca we would like to help celebrate and elevate the perspectives and work of women in our sector. Our aim is to showcase the role that women play in supporting sustainable livelihoods, climate change mitigation and creation of sustainable supply chains, and demonstrate how diverse and inclusive ways of working are an essential part of sustainable development.

Through this podcast series, shared monthly, we will hear from a range of inspirational women who work in sustainability across different sectors, geographies and commodity interests. As a platform for women’s voices, this podcast series will culminate in an open access virtual session, where the platform’s collection of stories, shared thoughts and reflections can be discussed and shared by all.


Some of our guest inspirational women include:

Fabiola Muñoz is Coordinator of the Coalition for Sustainable Production. Previously she was the Minister of Agriculture and Minister of the Environment of Peru & Executive Director of the Forest and Wildlife Service.

Frances Seymour is one of the world’s foremost authorities on sustainable development whose extensive research, leadership and management experience has given her a deep understanding of the environment-related opportunities and challenges facing developing countries.
