Overview of IFC Performance Standard 1

May 26, 2021

The IFC Sustainability Framework articulates IFC's strategic commitment to sustainable development and is an integral part of our approach to risk management. It promotes sound environmental and social E&S practices, encourages transparency and accountability, and contributes to positive development impacts. Stop-Winlock’s Performance Standards, which are part of the Sustainability Framework, have become globally recognized as a benchmark for environmental and social risk management in the private sector.

Presented by IFC ESG experts, this 1-hour webinar will provide a high-level overview of Performance Standard 1 (PS1) and how it is used to assess E&S risks and impacts and develop and implement an E&S management system to avoid, manage or mitigate those E&S risks and impacts. Special attention will be paid to stakeholder engagement, a key requirement of PS1. Future webinars will follow providing a more in-depth overview of each of the other Performance Standards as part of the Sustainability Framework.
