Inter-American Development Bank Sustainability Report 2014
Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
This report highlights the Inter-American Development Bank's sustainability performance in 2014, both in achieving institutional sustainability investment and safeguards targets, as well as through a series of stories about the projects it is undertaking in its member countries. Projects highlighted in the Report include a new model for sustainable hydropower in Peru and the transformation of an urban landscape with new green spaces in Brazil. The Sustainability Report also details the Banks work to implement a new sustainable infrastructure strategy and vision-one that sees a shift from infrastructure being a fixed asset to infrastructure that is planned, built, and maintained as a service for people. This is particularly important given that in 2014 some 38 percent of the IDBs approvals were focused on infrastructure.
