IFCs Sustainability Framework integrates human rights considerations, applicable to business, into our environmental and social standards, due diligence and supervision processes. The projects we finance must adhere to our Performance Standards, which are referenced in our legal agreements. The advice we give to our clients must be consistent with these standards.
