Extractives Industries - Sustain Magazine

How can businesses achieve and SUSTAIN stronger performance? How can they maximize profitability while contributing to positive long-term impact on society and the environment? How do companies across the world tackle sustainability challenges and how can they learn from each other? Moreover, how can IFC leverage its unique vantage point at the intersection of business and development to highlight fresh perspectives from pioneers from the private sector, governments, international organizations, and academia

These are some of the questions that have guided the creation of SUSTAIN, IFC’s platform for sharing cutting-edge business solutions with companies and partners across the world.
