The ESG Sustainability Advice and Solutions department (CEG) is IFC’s center of excellence in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and offers a range of expertise to help IFC’s Investment and Advisory clients identify and solve complex environmental, social, and corporate governance risk-related challenges, and to move markets towards adoption of good ESG practices. CEG includes approximately 290 staff and long-term consultants, roughly fifty percent of whom are based in regional offices and many of whom are considered experts in their respective fields. More details can be found at www.ifc.org/sustainability.

IFC is unique among Development Finance Institutions to have this cadre of in-house environment, social and corporate governance experts. It is through this expertise that CEG delivers on the two goals of its strategy: (i) partnering with IFC’s investment departments to manage ESG risks associated with their investments and find solutions to client issues; and (ii) leveraging our ESG expertise and operational experience in emerging markets to maintain IFC’s leadership in sustainability through ESG standards - the Environmental and Social (E&S) Performance Standards ( www.ifc.org/performancestandards) and the Corporate Governance Methodology ( www.ifc.org/corporategovernance) - and to encourage the effective adoption of these standards by companies and investors across the emerging markets. This is done by providing training to the market, working with regulators to strengthen laws and regulations, conducting market research on various topics, conducting firm-level engagements, advising companies on good CG practices and helping them implement changes. IFC’s standards have been widely adopted in emerging markets by development banks, project finance banks ( www.equator-principles.com), and export credit agencies such that over the last decade US$4.5trillion have been invested adhering to them.
