Women’s Rights Committee commits to energy transition
The Women’s Rights Committee signed the National Energy Transition Pact Commitment Charter on Wednesday 29 July 2020.
The charter was signed in the presence of Laurent Anselmi, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and the Committee’s Chair; Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, the Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development; Céline Cottalorda, the Chief Officer for Women’s Rights, along with other members of the Committee; and Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, Director of the Mission for Energy Transition, and her team.
Laurent Anselmi emphasised that “in signing the National Energy Transition Pact, our Committee, which is dedicated to promoting and safeguarding women’s rights, is making a firm contribution to the interaction driven by the UN; at the same playing a modest but determined role in helping to build the structure that the Principality is steadily creating, at the behest of the Sovereign Prince.”
Marie-Pierre Gramaglia added that this was “an effort that must unite us all: Monegasque nationals, residents, employees, people from all socio-professional backgrounds, all of the stakeholders within our community – today, the Women’s Rights Committee, and tomorrow, all of you.”
Céline Cottalorda, who signed the charter on behalf of the Committee, explained that she wanted “to set an example and encourage women in the Principality and the associations that are involved with the Committee to commit to protecting the environment.”
At the event, the Office of the High Commissioner for the Protection of Rights, Liberties and for Mediation, as well as the associations She Can He Can, Soroptimist and Femmes Leaders Mondiales Monaco, also committed to signing the National Energy Transition Pact Commitment Charter.
