Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

5 - Gender equality

While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality  and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals, women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world. Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies at large.

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to promote women's empowerment:
  • Distribute fuel-efficient cookstoves to reduce the pressure on local forests for firewood, and offer women more time to spend with family or on income generating activities as less time is spent on fuel collection and cooking (Targets 5.5 and 5.a)
  • Offer equal access to training and leadership to enhance women’s capacity outside traditional household roles, including taking an active role in forest conservation and restoration (Targets 5.5 and 5.a)
  • Increase women’s participation in economic activities, stimulating greater investment in children’s education, and encouraging the adoption and best practice sharing of sustainable livelihood alternatives (Target 5.5)

Projects that align with SDG 5: Gender equality

A number of carbon finance projects empower women and girls to play an active role in their household and community, with equal access to training and leadership roles. 

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
