Social bond impact report 2018 (Inglês)

This IFC’s Social Bond Impact Report 2018, for projects committed in financial year 2017. IFC’s Social Bond Program gives investors the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of people living in developing countries – and at the same time enjoy a financial return on their investment. Launched in March 2017, with a 500 million dollars global benchmark bond, the Social Bond Program attracted central banks, official institutions, pension funds, and fund managers and was 1.4 time oversubscribed. Since then, IFC's social bond issuances have had very strong responses. As the only multilateral development finance institution exclusively focused on the private sector, IFC’s strategy calls for finding innovative ways to create markets and opportunities for people living in the poorest and most challenging countries, including fragile and conflict-affected states. One exciting initiative has been to help build a rigorous and transparent market for social bonds. In addition to the inaugural social bond, IFC serves as co-chair of the industry-wide Social Bond Working Group and helped to establish the Social Bond Principles in 2017.The proceeds of IFC’s social bonds go toward private sector projects that benefit women-owned enterprises and low-income people in emerging markets. They expand access to electricity. They help smallholder farmers make a living. And they promote access to quality healthcare. The projects funded by IFC social bonds demonstrate that investing for good is not only possible it’s also good business. The dynamic entrepreneurs and companies profiled in this report are creating profound change in their communities and around the world.
