Transcript of finance cycle
it's a small, but prosperous country
with a growing economy
the companies need money
needs a loan
so they approach a Financial Intermediary
(let's say it's a BANK)...
... does the math...
.... assesses the risks....
... signs the deals...
Now, let's look again at the bigger picture
and they live happily ever after?
Not sure yet.
Let's take a look at the bigger picture
the African Development Bank promotes
AfDB focuses on
poverty alleviation and
use of fresh water
sugar cane plantation
field worker employment
local community resettlement?
Companies create an impact
Labor related aspects
Environmental and Social Impact of Businesses
and the Shared Responsibilities of AfDB and Financial Intermediairies
Three specific companies attract our attention...
Managing impact through shared responsibilities
... and gets involved in the success of the three businesses.
AfDB promotes the success of private sector companies, as they generate jobs, earnings, tax revenues
lends money and insists on responsible and legal activities
of its clients
manages its social and environmental impact
funds to the FI and insists on proper E&S risk management
within the FI's
companies have a responsibility
they need to manage impact by understanding their influence ...
... on use of resources: water, energy, chemicals
... on quality of water, soil, air
... on health and safety of workers, communities
they must comply to legislation
they have to address concerns of stakeholders
the FI becomes part of this responsibility
impact is being created with THEIR money
earnings are being generated with THEIR money
The FI and the company have to minimise risks
- it's in their mutual interest
financial risks, as well as
environmental and social risks!!
AfDB is ALSO part of the responsibility
AfDB provides funds to the FI
the company share an interest in minimizing risks
Again: financial risks, as well as environmental and social risks!!
Resettlement of people
Pressure on ecosystems
Health and Safety for employees and communities
AfDB: Financial Intermediaries need an ESMS
Q: Does the FI make clear how its activities impact the environment, health and safety, and labor - Do they have a written policy and a plan to mitigate negative impact and stimulate positive impact?
Q: Does the FI assess the social and environmental impact of the individual companies in its portfolio - Does the assessment result in specific actions per individual company or sector?
Q: Does the FI evaluate the social and environmental performance of its clients, after disbursement, and does the FI keep track of E&S data related to its portfolio?
Q: Does the FI use the results of its portfolio and internal monitoring and evaluation to improve it performance and adapt its policy?
An ESMS is a systematic process to assess the environmental and social risks and opportunities arising from the clients’ business activities and to manage the Bank’s exposure to them.
An ESMS involves setting social & environmental standards for selected clients and assuring clients’ compliance with these standards.
With designing and implementing an ESMS, the Bank aims at structurally improving the social and environmental quality of its loan portfolio.
An ESMS provides:
system and consistency
qualification for AfDB lending
access to capital
engaging with local communities
