The financial, social, and environmental sustainability of suppliers are areas that present significant risks and opportunities to buyers across industries. IFC’s GTSF program addresses supplier sustainability by offering a financial incentive for improvements in supplier social and environmental performance.
IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector. It helps developing countries achieve sustainable growth by financing investment, providing advisory services to businesses and governments, and mobilizing capital in the international financial markets.
The financial, social, and environmental sustainability of suppliers are areas that present significant risks and opportunities to buyers across industries. Though a variety of tools may be employed to manage these issues, IFC’s Global Trade Supplier Finance (GTSF) program uniquely addresses supplier sustainability by offering a financial incentive for improvements in supplier social and environmental performance.
The GTSF program has garnered global media attention and has recently been implemented with global brands such as NIKE, Levi Strauss & Co., and PUMA.
