Policy on Environmental and Social Sustainability - 2012 Edition

15 pages | © January 2012 IFC | Complimentary

IFC strives for positive development outcomes in the activities it supports in developing countries. These activities include (i) investments financed directly by IFC; (ii) investments implemented through financial intermediaries (FIs) or managed by IFC’s Asset Management Company or any other IFC subsidiary, as well as investments funded in part or in whole by donors; and (iii) advisory services. IFC believes that an important component of achieving positive development outcomes is the environmental and social sustainability of these activities, which IFC pursues and expects to achieve through the application of this Policy on Environmental and Social Sustainability, and a comprehensive set of environmental and social Performance Standards. Through this Policy, IFC puts into practice its commitments to environmental and social sustainability.
