IFU's sustainability communication

We communicate openly about our efforts and the results of our sustainability work, and we make annual progress reports to the UN Global Compact.

We believe that being open about our efforts and results is the best foundation for our external communication. We are prepared to share the methods and tools that we apply when we appraise the project companies, and how we contribute to the companies becoming sustainable through advice, training and competence building.

IFU is required by law to report on our sustainability work as part of our financial reporting, and we report to the UN Global Compact on an annual basis about our progress with the implementation of the 10 principles.

When it comes to our business operations, IFU is not subject to the Danish Open Files Act, and information from the project companies are therefore treated confidentially. We are howeverm subject to the Environmental Information Act. That means that we might be obligated to disclose information about the environmental impact of the project companies, if journalists or other interested parties request access to information. As a first step we will always contact the project company involved and encourage it to get in touch with the interested party requesting access to information.  

IFU has a Sustainability Advisory Board with representatives of important stakeholders within environment. human rights, development and company policies. We regularly invite these stakeholders to meetings about the challenges, dilemmas and possibilities of IFU's sustainability work.
