SourceAsia has been commissioned to use its InvestAssure service, to identify any incidents or allegations reported on the web which may be significant in the context of the criteria being applied by PRA for social and environmental reviews of potential investments by the Fund, i.e. compliance with:

 

 the Fund’s S&E Policy

 host country legal requirements

 IFC Performance Standards (PS) and EHS Guidelines.

 

The findings of our historical reviews (covering 3-5 years) provide valuable input to the core screening and due diligence process which is applied to each potential investment.

 

Any negative findings can be used to help focus audits and other investigations. These may be past incidents which resulted in real impacts (e.g. on human health or the environment), or they may be smaller accidents or allegations which are potentially indicative of poor management cultures, weak governance or ineffective operational controls.
