BIC’s Environment and Climate Campaign focuses on promoting development finance that advances agreed international environmental goals & standards and ecological & social justice, especially with respect to forests and climate. We do this by ensuring International Financial Institutions (IFIs) meet their environmental commitments, are transparent as to their environmental and human impacts, and that these impacts benefit people and respect their rights & the value of the ecosystems they depend on. We focus particularly in supporting Indigenous People and local communities in their roles as forest stewards.
