GIEK will evaluate the documentation provided by the client, as well as conduct its own assessment of potential risks and negative impacts related to the transaction in question. Our assessment of projects are based on applicable local law and regulations, and relevant international standards, the most important being the International Financial Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards and Core ILO Labour standards.

Clients should be aware of potential environmental, social and human rights risks within their own operations and within the projects there are involved in. It is expected that they have conducted their own due diligence to identify potential risks and impacts, and have documented how they intend to prevent, mitigate and remediate these.
