These gender-based violence due diligence tools analyze existing due diligence categories – including political, regulatory, operational and reputational risks – and show how these can be affected by gender-based violence. Building upon due diligence processes that are standard worldwide, the tools support investors in understanding the risks gender-based violence poses to their investments and how they can address the issue.

Recognizing that gender-based violence is an issue that affects all regions globally, Criterion works with our partners to produce versions of the tool that can be used in specific geographic or sectoral contexts. Dozens of gender and gender-based violence experts as well as financial professionals played a role in shaping the tools.
