Our Environmental and Social Sustainability Policy

The IIC Environmental and Social Sustainability Policy (Sustainability Policy) became effective on September 1, 2013.

The purpose of the IIC Sustainability Policy is to convey the IIC’s commitment to sustainable development. This is an integral part of its approach to risk management and also to its development mandate.

The IIC’s mission is to promote sustainable economic development in its regional developing member countries by fostering the establishment, expansion, and modernization of private enterprises, with a focus on those that are small and medium-size, in such a way as to supplement the activities of the Inter-American Development Bank Group.

Check the history of our Sustainability Policy to learn how the IIC has evolved on this front since 1999.
