IFC has recently launched a new series of free webinars offering its expertise and thought leadership on sustainability issues. The first session, IFC Performance Standards 101, was presented by Reidar Kvam.
This handbook is for firms who wish to expand their supply chains by working with smallholder farmers. It is designed as an overview of key topics for sustainability and supply chain managers at agribusinesses, plantation companies, and extractives.
Growing public awareness of environmental, social, and corporate governance issues is driving changes in the products consumers buy, how companies do business, and how investment decisions are made.
IFC's world-class environmental, social, and and corporate governance expertise helps private-sector clients succeed in this changing global environment by realizing their financial potential with a strong eye to environmental, social, and governance issues such as climate change, access to water, disclosure and transparency, and the impact business operations may have on local communities.
Our expertise includes:
Risk Management: Helping companies identify, reduce, and manage environmental, social, and corporate governance risks associated with their services, products, and business operations.
Advisory Services in Sustainable Business: Working 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.
