Sustainable Business Advisory
IFC's Sustainable Business Advisory (SBA) teams work to catalyze the development of markets that work for all members of society and in the long term.
Building on IFC's mission, strategy and environmental and social performance standards, we promote sustainable business practices specifically among firms in infrastructure, extractive industries, manufacturing, agribusiness, and services sectors.
Our programs encourage good corporate governance, build the capacity of small firms, support women entrepreneurs, and promote management and investment decisions that are sustainable and inclusive.
We offer these programs in the context of working with companies to promote sustainable management and investment practices towards decent employment and growth; or when addressing climate change through encouraging mitigation and building resilience; and as we promote market solutions for sustainable agribusiness and forestry.
