Advisory Services

IFC's Advisory Services works with companies to adopt environmental, social and governance practices and technologies that create a competitive edge. We seek the broad adoption of these practices to transform markets and improve people's lives.


Our programs promote good corporate governance and strategic community investments; advance women in business, small scale farmers, and small firms; and engage the private sector in climate-change solutions.


Public Private Partnerships 


IFC provides advice on designing and implementing public-private partnership (PPP) transactions to national and municipal governments to improve infrastructure and access to basic services such as water, power, health and education.

Clean Energy


IFC's Sustainable Business Advisory Services in Clean Energy focuses on removing barriers to investments in renewable energy technologies and demonstrating how such investments can be profitable and sustainable. 

Sustainable Investing


IFC mobilizes institutional capital into sustainable and inclusive equity investment funds and indices by helping companies articulate, investors to recognize, and markets to reward sustainable and inclusive business practices.

Green Buildings


While environmental pressures are compelling reasons to build responsibly, green buildings create additional rewards that are a win-win for all. IFC has resources for various stakeholders in the green building value chain. 

Resource Efficiency


Leveraging both technical and financial expertise, we support the development of profitable and environmentally sound projects, business models, and sector wide engagements to change market behavior and support more environmentally sustainable, low carbon economic growth.
