The company, which offers Europe’s first urban, mobile and on-demand fast-charging service, is committed to applying the 7 principles of women’s empowerment set out in the UN Women Charter.
Rome, 7 February 2022 – E-GAP, Europe’s first urban, mobile and on-demand fast-charging service, today announced that it has adopted the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) as part of its commitment to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women in the workplace and business practices.
“We have joined the WEPs as we believe they are perfectly in line with the objectives and principles that have distinguished E-GAP from day one. We have always been convinced that gender diversity and professional equality between women and men are conducive to innovation, creativity and performance in all companies” said Luca Fontanelli, CEO of E-GAP.
“Women’s leadership, as confirmed by many studies, is a critical success factor for companies and contributes substantially to excellent performance: it is very empathetic and based on collaboration, favouring methods of achieving results that are known to be inclusive. The ability to listen that all female leaders have in common allows them to involve their colleagues in the company’s decisions, even the most strategic ones, making them all participate in the achievement of common goals, in a participatory and less hierarchical organisational context” said Carla Cianfriglia, E-GAP’s new Chief HR & Organisation Officer. “For all these reasons, we believe it is necessary to be at the forefront in promoting women’s empowerment in companies and in the workplace in general” concluded Cianfriglia.
Established jointly by the UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEPs are underpinned by international labour and human rights standards and are based on the recognition of the important role of business in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment. Adopting the seven principles is the best way for businesses to commit to closing the gender gap, as outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs.
Through the UN Women Charter, E-GAP is at the forefront of efforts to create an even safer and healthier working environment. The implementation of the 7 WEPs includes not only the fair treatment of all women and men at work, according to international human rights and the principle of non-discrimination, but also the guarantee of health, safety and well-being for all workers and the promotion of education, training and professional development for women.
E-GAP is the first urban, mobile and on-demand fast-charging service in Europe. Through the smartphone app of the same name, E-GAP allows you to receive a home recharge, of “fast charge” level and performed via zero-emission e-van. From 2019 active in Milan and Rome and from November 2021 in Bologna, but soon available in other Italian and European cities.
