Overview of IFC Performance Standard 3

The IFC Sustainability Framework articulates IFC's strategic commitment to sustainable development and is an integral part of our approach to risk management. It promotes sound environmental and social E&S practices, encourages transparency and accountability, and contributes to positive development impacts. IFC’s Performance Standards, which are part of the Sustainability Framework, have become globally recognized as a benchmark for environmental and social risk management in the private sector.

Presented by IFC ESG experts, this 75-minute webinar will provide a high-level overview of Performance Standard 3 (PS3) and how it guides clients to integrate practices that promote resource efficiency; pollution prevention and control; and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to avoid or minimize adverse impacts on human health and the environment. Special attention will be paid to PS3’s emphasis on the Mitigation Hierarchy and the use of good international industry practice, including the WBG Environmental Health, and Safety (EHS) Guidelines which are fundamental to the implementation of PS3. Future webinars will follow providing a more in-depth overview of each of the other Performance Standards as part of IFC's Sustainability Framework.
