Women in Green

In March 2020, WIPO GREEN launched its new interview series Women in Green. In these articles we ask female innovators and green entrepreneurs about their inventions, the development of their business, and their experiences in the eco-friendly technology and innovation field.

Would you like to nominate a female inventor or green business founder you know? Contact us and help us celebrate women who change the world through innovation!
