Published by IFC Sustainability
"Beyond Risk" is a casebook on sustainability in the emerging markets financial sector. It documents how the sector has increasingly integrated environmental issues into day-to-day operations. As such it is an invaluable aid to understanding how these financial institutions have managed environmental risk and used environmental management as a tool for identifying new business opportunities. The casebook is based on case studies, in-depth interviews and research from the popular series of Competitive Environmental Advantage workshops that have been developed and run by IFC since 1996.
