Transparency Policy and Approach

In addition to development impacts, FinDev Canada aims to fully understand the human rights and environmental and social (E&S) risks presented by the operations of the businesses it supports.  FinDev Canada’s E&S Assessment Policy outlines the approach taken to mitigate human rights and E&S risks and potentially improve baseline E&S conditions in the businesses it supports.

FinDev Canada also had an independent verification conducted by BlueMark to assess the alignment of FinDev Canada’s impact management system with the Principles.
