Risk Management


IFC's Performance Standards provide guidance on how to identify risks and impacts, and are designed to help our clients avoid, mitigate, and manage risk. Our Corporate Governance Framework provides a platform for clients to evaluate and improve governance practices.


When a project is proposed for financing, IFC conducts due diligence of the client's commitment and capacity to manage risks. Where there are gaps in capacity, IFC and the client agree on a plan to improve the company's environmental, social, and corporate governance performance. We supervise our environmental and social aspects of projects throughout the duration of our investment.
