Training Workshop on IFC Performance Standards; Environmental and Social Sustainability
17-19 May, 2022
The assessment and management of environmental and social risks and impacts are part of the larger overall set of processes that an investor uses to manage projects.
Each of the Performance Standards has elements related to human rights dimensions that a project may face in the course of its operations. Due diligence against these Performance Standards will enable the client to address many relevant human rights issues in its project.
Attend this training workshop and learn how you manage environmental and social risks using the International Finance Corporations (IFC) Performance Standards (PS), thereby having a positive impact on project bottom line, reputation and development impact.
The IFC PS are essential for successful and sustainable performance of projects. Performance Standard 1 underscores the importance of managing environmental and social (including labor, health, safety, and security) performance throughout the life of the investment. A good assessment and management system enables continuous improvement of environmental and social performance, and can lead to better economic, financial, social, and environmental outcomes.
Join our team of experts to explore key environmental and social issues of current and emerging importance for business, including climate change, business and human rights, supply chain management, gender issues, stakeholder engagement, Indigenous Peoples, and biodiversity and ecosystem services. The event will also x-ray implementation challenges and opportunities for continued learning and partnerships in both the financial and non-financial sectors.
