IFC launches updated ESG methodology

IFC has launched its updated Corporate Governance Methodology in response to the growing trend for investors to pay closer attention to the way companies manage ESG matters.

The core tool of the methodology is IFC’s Corporate Governance Progression Matrix, which companies can use to improve their respective governance framework including board oversight of environmental and social issues. It emphasises the importance of continuing progress—rather than static minimum standards—in the corporate governance and sustainability practices of a company.

As a major investor in emerging markets, IFC is applying this methodology to its own due diligence and investments.
