Overview of IFC Performance Standard 6

March 16, 2022

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’s Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) biodiversity specialists, this 75-minute webinar will provide a high-level overview of Performance Standard 6 (PS6) and its accompanying Guidance Note 6. The webinar will focus on PS6 objectives, applicability, the identification of priority biodiversity values, and habitat classification. The team will highlight how requirements differ depending on the project’s location and will share examples of real-life challenges in PS6 implementation. The final part of the session will focus on PS6 requirements for supply chains.
