Centering equity in climate solutions

EcoEquity’s Tom Athanasiou promotes equity principles in climate policy, by producing political and economic analyses and educational materials that highlight equity issues, and by developing practical proposals for just climate policies. Founder Tom Athanasiou emphasizes the importance of fair stocktakes in order to enable a just transition to a green economy. 

Tom leads the independent Global Stocktake’s Equity Working Group which provided input how the Global Stocktake can center equity during its technical process.

The #BoldClimateActionIs campaign showcases how our network of partners and grantees is driving bold climate action and how leaders can scale these solutions. Join the conversation on social media and tell the world what #BoldClimateActionIs to you.

“To succeed, the global stocktake has to help us shift from half-measures to transformative action. And this means action on the scale of the actual need.The global stocktake can do this but only if it’s conducted in the light of equity, as is called for by the Paris Agreement.”
