Goal 10: Reduce inequality within and among countries

10 - Reduced inequalities

Inequalities based on income, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, race, class, ethnicity, religion and opportunity continue to persist across the world, within and among countries. There is growing consensus that economic growth is not sufficient to reduce poverty if it is not inclusive and if it does not involve the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental.

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 equality:
  • The premise of carbon finance is to direct funds to the most effective global projects to deliver emission reductions and sustainable development outcomes. Largely based in less economically developed countries where communities depend on the natural environment for their livelihoods, these projects present an effective way to engage and support communities on developing improved livelihoods that avoid environmental degradation (Target 10.b)
  • Project activities that are targeted toward low income communities, with a focus on reducing expenditures and improving and diversifying income, skills and opportunities for employment (Target 10.b)
     

Projects that align with SDG 10: Reduced inequalities

A number of carbon finance projects support households and communities to access opportunities to improve their standard of living, whether that be related to health, income, food security, education or energy access. 

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