Opinion Number: CDR 2509/2021
Rapporteur: TÜTTŐ Kata
Commission: ENVE
Status: Adopted
Date: 27/01/2022
Highlight the importance of effectively mainstreaming gender as a driver in the climate policies, since the announced integration of the gender perspective in all major climate Commission initiatives is not explicit
Promote women's participation in climate change decision-making as an important factor for more gender responsive and efficient climate change policies and programmes through actions across the EU institutions, government bodies and public authorities at all governance levels.
Underline Local and regional authorities (LRAs) are best placed to integrate social issues (like gender) with climate action, since they are the level of government closest to the people.
Identify opportunities in the field of green entrepreneurship so that women's contribution in green economic activities become essential to achieve equitable sustainable development.
Propose solutions to avoid energy poverty and to improve public transport so that all citizens can better benefit from the transitions.
Link the EU work on gender mainstreaming with the international level.
After the adoption of the opinion, the rapporteur has been invited to several events related to the topic by the European Commission, associations and other stakeholders. She has also had a bilateral meeting with the Chair of the FEMM committee of the European Parliament.
On 24 October, EIGE revealed the results of the annual Gender Equality Index in a virtual conference livestreamed from the European Parliament multimedia studio. EIGE will present the new scores on gender equality in the EU and all Member States, providing an overview of where we stand, highlighting improvements and showing where more needs to be done.

- reaffirms that gender equality is a core European value, and a fundamental principle of the European Union enshrined in the Treaties and in Article 23 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union;

- highlights that there are important links between gender, climate change and other environmental challenges; points out that women and men are likely to be affected differently by the impacts of climate change, have different perceptions of and attitudes towards options for climate change mitigation, and are affected differently by the socioeconomic impacts of climate policy; believes that women and girls can act as catalysts of behavioural change;

- considers that a gender-sensitive approach can better respond to the needs and capacities of all citizens. Local and regional authorities (LRAs) are best placed to integrate social issues with climate action, since they are the level of government closest to the people and play a key role in implementing legislation;

- stresses that women's contribution in green economic activities is essential to achieve equitable sustainable development and should be seen and valued; women and girls can also benefit from the opportunities in the field of green entrepreneurship and become green employers rather than employees;

- is concerned that gender mainstreaming does not feature among the 11 assessment criteria set out in the Resilience Facility Regulation;

- welcomes the preamble of the Paris Agreement, which calls for gender equality to be achieved and for women's empowerment to help limit global warming to be fostered; embraces the recognition made in the Paris Agreement of the need to adopt gender-responsive approaches in adaptation and capacity-building efforts, but regrets the lack of action in this regard and the lack of a further implementation plan.



Gender Equality Index 2023

Gender Equality and the European Green Deal
This year’s thematic focus analyses Europe’s ambition to become the first carbon neutral continent, drawing attention to two areas, the transport and energy sectors. By focusing on the different effects of climate change on women and men, the Index underlines the need for a socially fair transition that considers the needs of specific people and groups.
