Abstract

Applying a gender lens to climate mitigation and resilience is a developing area of interest for businesses. This project aims to increase industry focus on how companies can integrate gender into climate change mitigation and into their just transition activities. BSR seeks to identify companies that are currently addressing this intersection beyond building climate resilience through the agricultural sector. The research identifies three companies that address gender issues in their climate strategies and seeks to highlight key initiatives so that other companies can learn from and integrate aspects into their climate mitigation activities and solutions.

BSR is a global nonprofit organization that works with its network of over 250 member companies like Google, Microsoft, Loreal, Coca Cola, and other partners to build a just and sustainable world. The organization develops sustainable business strategies and solutions through consulting, research, and cross-sector collaboration. In 2018, BSR produced “Climate + Women,” a report that looks at the intersection of climate change and the empowerment of women primarily through climate resilience activities. This project aims to expand on BSR’s nexus report examples and highlight how companies can integrate gender into climate change mitigation activities across sectors.
