Spain is one of the leading countries in Europe in rural and green female entrepreneurship. This was announced by the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) during a conference held on 10 March to mark International Women’s Day. 


The report analysed green entrepreneurship, rural entrepreneurship and the intersection between the two with national statistics, also taking into account data by autonomous communities and the European Union. It was observed that “the average contribution bases of self-employed women entrepreneurs in green activities are similar to those of green entrepreneurs”. In addition, women paid more contributions in this sector than in other economic activities.
