“Women are key players in the fight against climate change. However, they are also the first victims of climate change. We need women to take their place in the decision-making process as they are clearly vital to finding the solution.” Audrey Tcherkoff, Women’s Forum Managing Director

For the first time, the Women’s Forum has launched a toolkit to promote women to key positions and take the lead in shaping climate-change strategies.

Whether you are a business or private sector leader, this toolkit serves as a resource to organizations who are ready to act today. It contains:

  • recommendations of actions
  • case studies and best practices
  • indicators to monitor on progress
  • online resources and references

5 levers are activated, based on the 5 pillars of the Charter of Engagement on Women Leading Action that the Women4ClimateAction Daring Circle released in 2019, which has been signed by over 500 businesses, civil society institutions, public authorities and individual leaders:

  • Leadership and representation
  • Education
  • Access to means of action
  • Data
  • Finance

Because 54% of female CEOs reported to have adopted more ambitious sustainability milestones due to the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to 44% of male CEOs.

Because female political representation leads countries to adopt more stringent climate change policies.

Because only 12%of environment ministries were headed by women worldwide and only 21% of C40 mayors were women as of 2019.

Ensuring women can lead climate action at all levels is essential if we are to build a more sustainable and more equal world in the coming decade.

The Women’s Forum is ready to engage with businesses and institutions that want to learn and share best practices. This toolkit has been created based on the experience of our partners and over three years of ongoing research by the Women4ClimateAction Daring Circle.

The Daring Circle is led by BNP Paribas, in collaboration with BouyguesColasEngie, and Microsoft as Global Partners. The Circle is supported by KPMG as Knowledge Partner, with contributions from CARE FranceClimateSeedMinistère de la transition écologiqueOECDR20SEforAll, Société pour l’encouragement de l’industrie nationale, and Syntec Numérique ; and HEC as Academic Partner.

CARBON NEUTRAL TRANSPORT ISN’T GENDER NEUTRAL

In transport, as in so many other domains, the Covid-19 pandemic has revealed deep-rooted differences, inequalities, and discriminations. Alongside the confusion and hardship brought on by global crisis, the experience has shed much needed light on the ways that socio-economic and natural systems interact with each other and create unequal impacts.

REALIZING A GENDER-RESPONSIVE APPROACH TO OUR CLIMATE CHANGE COMMITMENTS – THE WOMEN’S FORUM & CLIMATESEED

At the Women’s Forum, we know that climate change and gender are deeply interconnected issues. For this reason, the Women’s Forum is renewing its strong commitment to fight climate change by measuring, reducing its emissions, and contributing to carbon reduction projects with co-benefits on gender equality. This engagement will cover all emissions generated from its activities throughout the year to reach a net-zero level. To realize this ambition, the Women’s Forum is partnering with ClimateSeed, a Social Business launched by BNP Paribas in collaboration with Nobel Peace Prize recipient Professor Yunus.

WOMEN’S FORUM & CLIMATESEED: THE TRAJECTORY TOWARD NET-ZERO EMISSIONS

The Women’s Forum and ClimateSeed joined forces to achieve meaningful climate action on the occasion of our 2020 Women’s Forum Global Meeting. This action is based on the recognition of the fundamental role of women in the fight against climate change. After ClimateSeed measured the carbon footprint of 2020 Global Meeting, the Women’s Forum supported a high-quality carbon reduction project that contributes to the achievement of SDG5 (gender equality): the Cook Stoves Project in Peru!
