Products and Services
Gender Tech will develop a series of product-based enterprises and services to tackle and respond to current challenges affecting girls and women, particularly the most vulnerable and marginalised. We will regularly work with gender and inclusion experts to ensure our products and services are informed by the latest evidence and work closely with technology specialists.
Contributing To Climate Justice
Bringing a gender lens into the carbon markets in recognition of the massive gap in recognition and understanding of the vital linkages between the success of action to mitigate greenhouse gas emmissions and womens participation and climate leadership continues as the focus of our work in 2023. Historically women have been virtually invisible in carbon markets resulting in lost opportunities for gaining from their wisdom and experience; avoidable social and environmental harms from poorly designed interventions; and the inequitable distribution from the sales of carbon credits. To increase the integration of gender and womens voices into the voluntary carbon market (VCM), Sue Phillips of Gender Tech has been contributing since 2020 as an expert adviser to the Integrity Council for the Voluntary Carbon Market (ICVCM) and in 2022 led a UK FCDO funded research into the state of gender integration into the VCM which was published in November.
We are currently partnering with EMTEC Corporation (https://www.emteccorp.com) to support the application of their vehicle tracking technology into emerging markets. EMTEC has developed a unique and highly accurate digital technology for measuring vehicle carbon emissions and together we are developing a digital platform to use this technology to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles in East Africa.
Our mission is to deliver a just solution that reduces carbon emissions whilst supporting livelihood opportunities for low income women and men. We aim to increase affordability of two and three wheeler EVs by opening up access to carbon market finance through the use of our digital technology, maximising the flow of financial benefits to end users.
