Gender Equality Mainstreaming (GEM) Framework

The GEM self-assessment measures a company’s performance on ESG components. Designed for companies to complete themselves, the self-assessment builds upon the ESG investment standard by mainstreaming gender across a range of ESG criteria. The self-assessment is made up of three surveys, with each survey asking gender-specific questions about one of the ESG components. The GEM self-assessment assists businesses to identify these types of value creation opportunities that can improve a company’s standing among its competitors.
