IFC’s environmental and social policies seek to avoid impacts to the ecosystem and protected biodiversity. IFC has been investing in Brazil’s private sector since 1957, helping the country to address its development challenges. Investing in infrastructure is key for long-term sustainable growth in Brazil and in Latin America as a whole, and it is a priority for IFC. We work with our clients to mitigate risks by advising them on how to build their overall environmental and social management capacity and adopt our Performance Standards.
