eC2: Request for Proposal Environmental, Social, and Governance Data Provider

Deadline: 08-Oct-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)Survey

Assignment Description: IFC has developed a methodology, drawn from its ESG standards and adjusted to the circumstances of emerging market capital markets. The IFC ESG methodology for capital markets extracts the most material issues from IFC’s Environmental and Social Performance Standards and Corporate Governance Methodology to identify environmental and social, sector-specific, and corporate governance performance indicators for ESG due diligence of issuers of debt securities in emerging markets. A risk-weighted assessment methodology based on these performance indicators allows for their weighting by risk tolerance, permitting users to focus due diligence on the issues of most significance to them, and to then make risk-based decisions before buying securities. IFC seeks to identify ESG data provider/s to support IFC with collecting and analyzing ESG information, as defined by the IFC performance indicators, for emerging market corporates. IFC will use this information to benchmark emerging market issuers using its risk-weighted methodology.
