Social Development and Inclusion
The Company believes that social development and inclusion are critical for sound development. For the Company, inclusion means empowering people to participate in and benefit from the development process in a manner consistent with local conditions. Inclusion encompasses policies to promote equality of opportunity and nondiscrimination, by improving the access of poor, employment, financial services and productive assets to remove barriers against vulnerable groups.
The Company's Clients, whether public or private, are responsible for successful preparation and implementation of their Projects, including management of the environmental and social risks and impacts of these activities.
The Company believes that gender equality is necessary for sustainable economic development and improvement of lives. The Company supports its Clients to identify potential gender- specific opportunities as well as gender-specific adverse risks and impacts under their Projects, and to develop mitigation measures to avoid or reduce such risks and impacts, including, as appropriate, measures to identify and address the risks of gender-based violence (GBV). The Company supports its Clients to enhance the design of their Projects in an inclusive and gender-responsive manner to promote equality of opportunity and women's socioeconomic empowerment, particularly with respect to access to finance, services and employment, including equal pay for equal work, and otherwise to promote positive impacts on women's economic status, with particular regard to financial resources and property ownership and control. The Company also supports its Clients' efforts to identify and address the risks of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA), sexual harassment (SH), and GBV, including intimidation, in the Projects it supports.
公司认识到工人、雇主及其代表在发展过程中发挥的重要作用，以及他们对可持续经济增长的贡献。公司认为，在项目下采取的以下措施有助于支持可持续发展： 为员工提供生活工资；提供安全和健康的工作条件，并采取措施防止事故、伤害和疾病；避免涉及强迫劳动和有害或剥削童工形式的活动；具有良好的人力资源管理；在平等机会、公平待遇、非歧视、结社自由、集体谈判权和使用工作场所申诉补救机制的基础上建立良好的劳资关系，符合管理项目的国家法律（包括成员通过的国际协议） 公司还认识到客户需要识别、避免和减轻环境和社会风险以及劳动力涌入项目的影响。
The Company recognizes the important role played by workers, employers and their representatives in the development process, and their contribution to sustainable economic growth. It believes that the following measures taken under Projects help to support sustainable development: providing workers with living wages; providing safe and healthy working conditions and putting measures in place to prevent accidents, injuries and disease; avoiding activities involving forced labor and harmful or exploitative forms of child labor; having good human resources management; and having a sound labor management relationship based on equal opportunity, fair treatment, nondiscrimination, freedom of association, right to collective bargaining and access to a workplace grievance redress mechanism, consistent with national law (including international agreements adopted by the Member) governing the Project. The Company also recognizes the need for Clients to identify, avoid and mitigate the environmental and social risks and impacts of labor influx into Project communities.
公司认为生产资料需要绿色、低碳和气候适应性，以根据2015 年《巴黎协定》和各国的国家自主贡献(NDC) 加强全球对气候变化威胁的响应。客户对减轻和适应气候变化影响的日益关注和承诺加强了公司在这一领域的关注。公司支持《巴黎协定》的三个目标，即： 将全球平均气温升幅控制在远低于工业化前水平两摄氏度的减缓目标；增强适应能力、增强复原力和降低气候变化脆弱性的全球适应目标；以及使所有资金流动符合实现低温室气体(GHG)排放和适应气候变化发展的途径的目标。公司将越来越重视减缓和适应气候变化的投资，同时继续支持具有绿色目标的金融和资本市场运作，通过与私营和公共部门机构的伙伴关系扩大气候融资。
Address Climate Change
Productive assets need to be green, low carbon and climate resilient in order to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, in line with the Paris Agreement of 2015 and countries' nationally determined contributions (NDC). The Company's focus in this area has been reinforced by the increasing attention and commitment on the part of Clients to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The Company supports the three aims of the Paris Agreement, namely: the mitigation goal of holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below two degrees Centigrade above pre-industrial levels; the global adaptation goal of enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change; and the goal of making all finance flows consistent with a pathway toward low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate-resilient development. The company will pay more and more attention to investment in mitigation and adaptation to climate change, and continue to support the operation of financial and capital markets with green objectives, and expand climate financing through partnerships with private and public sector institutions.
