IFU’s investments should be sustainable and contribute to environmental and socially responsible development in the projects we invest in
IFU’s objective is that our investments contribute to a lasting economic, environmental and social sustainable development through e.g. the creation of healthy and safe workplaces and the transfer of know-how and cleaner technologies. We wish to contribute to the social and economic development of the local community – and we also encourage the project companies to engage themselves locally.
IFU will not invest in projects involving activities on the exclusion list of the European Development Finance Institutions (EDFI).
Sustainability Advisory board
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.
