ResponsAbility To Empower Women in Emerging Markets via Climate Fund

A Swiss sustainable asset manager, responsAbility Investments, has announced its commitment to apply a gender lens to its investments through one of its climate funds.

The company explained that with this commitment, the climate fund, a private debt fund addressing lack of access to clean power primarily in sub-Saharan Africa and South and South-East Asia, qualifies for the 2X Challenge.

The 2X Challenge is an initiative that deploys and mobilises capital to empower women and enhance their economic participation in emerging markets.
