The CEO of BioAzul, Antonia Lorenzo Lopez, has been selected as a Leader in Action by the Women’s Empowerment Principles, an initiative established by United Nations Global Compact and UN Women.

The Women’s Empowerment Principles are a set of Principles offering guidance to businesses on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace, and community.

Antonia Lorenzo plays an important role as a Water Europe’s ambassador in her position as the leader of the Working Group (WG) Water and Agrifood. The scope of this working group focuses on good practices and innovative solutions to improve sustainable exploitation and stewardship of water sources by involving the water sector, the food industry (e.g. processing), and the agricultural sector in finding synergies that boost cooperation and exchange of knowledge between these relevant sectors.

Likewise, the WG seeks to pave the way for the implementation of appropriate solutions by improving the framework conditions (e.g. better regulations, funding, water quality and quantity, social and economic aspects, etc.)
