Policies and Guidelines
Following the "Policy Guideline for Green Banking" issued by the GB & CSR Department of Bangladesh Bank on August 11, 2013, IDLC has formulated its own "Green Banking Policy". The Policy has been approved by the Management and has been placed for Board Approval.
Major areas covered in the Policy include:
Governance
E&S Risks in Credit Risk Management
In-house Environment Management
Green Finance, Products and Marketing
Climate Risk Fund
Training, Awareness and Green Events
Disclosure and Reporting
Moreover, a Green Banking Unit has been formed with representation from different departments of IDLC that shall be responsible for on-time implementation of the areas covered by the Policy.

IDLC also complies with the "Environmental Risk Management (ERM) Guidelines for Banks and Financial Institutions in Bangladesh" issued by Bangladesh Bank on January 2011. ERM Guidelines have been incorporated in the Credit Policy of IDLC and has been approved by the Board. Environmental and social risks are now considered along with the general credit risks while assessing a prospective borrower.

In addition to the national laws and regulations, IDLC has also voluntarily adopted the principles of the UN Global Compact and UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI). Going forward, these will also become part of IDLC’s credit risk assessment process to bring in place a more rigorous Environment and Social Risk Management framework.
