International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards

International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards

IFC’s corporate responsibility commitment is to make sustainability an integral part of our internal business operations—holding ourselves accountable to the same environmental and social standards we ask of our clients.

Our commitment to walk our talk connects IFC’s mission with how we run our business. It helps us best serve our clients, by attracting and retaining top talent with diverse perspectives. It also boosts our investment potential, by ensuring resource efficiency within our own operations, and helps us position ourselves as sustainability thought leaders.

Our commitment to corporate responsibility is not only good for our business—it is the right thing to do for a better future for everyone.

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector in developing countries. The Performance Standards provide guidance on how to identify risks and impacts, and are designed to help avoid, mitigate, and manage risks and impacts as a way of doing business in a sustainable way, including stakeholder engagement and disclosure obligations of the client in relation to project-level activities.
