EBRD cites connection between climate action and gender equality

 November 10, 2021

The United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, saw the launch of a new toolkit about gender-smart climate finance supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Tackling inequality and climate crisis

The Gender Lens Climate Financing Investing Guide is created by 2X Gender and Climate Finance Taskforce and powered by EBRD, European Investment Bank (EIB), and CDC Group.

The aim of the guide is to leverage the power of gender-smart investments for climate action while driving gender equality and women’s economic empowerment.

"If you want to tackle climate crisis, you need to tackle inequality," explained Barbara Rambousek, EBRD Director Gender and Economic Inclusion, at the launch.

Making gender equality an integral part of green investment

EBRD recognizes that gender equality has to be an integral part of green investment and policy action.

In 2020, the new strategic priorities EBRD set for the next five years centred on making investments not only more green but also more inclusive, gender equal and digital.

The critical connection between climate action and gender equality is at the heart of EBRD's agenda.

Work for an organization with a focus on gender equality

The EBRD looks to recruit people passionate about the Bank's values and work. Whether you are a banker, analyst, economist, IT specialist or researcher, there are a number of opportunities to support the EBRD in its operations from client relations to communications.
