Our own business

In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, IFS has identified several areas where it will increase its focus for greater impact.

 

Education – the IFS Education Program already works with nearing 80 universities and higher education institutions globally. The program provides scholarships, grants, IT equipment, as well as practical knowledge through internships and mentorships for students. Over the course of the next three years, we plan to expand the program to 150 institutions globally.

 

Carbon emissions – in a program started in 2019, IFS committed to reducing its carbon footprint in part through consolidating its real-estate and improving the green credentials of its properties. From mid-2019 to date, IFS has reduced the square meterage of its global real estate by 9.5%, shrunk its car fleet by 86% versus 2019. By 2025, IFS wants to continue the drive of reducing its carbon footprint from its offices and travel, and will decommission carbon emitting petrol and diesel cars and to invite eligible members to electric.

 

Philanthropy – IFS champions and partners with the IFS Foundation to alleviate poverty and other social ills in Sri Lankan rural villages - Sri Lanka is home to the largest proportion of the IFS workforce.

The IFS Foundation’s mission is to help improve the living standards of people in the countryside by addressing aspects of health, water and sanitation, education and economy, and resulting in a self-sustained community. CSR initiatives in Sri Lanka have already improved the lives of over 3000 people. IFS supports IFS Foundation’s planned expansion to encompass additional areas within remote and rural areas of Sri Lanka.

 

Developing an Impact Mindset – IFS is looking for ways to further accelerate its employee awareness of and contribution to the sustainability agenda. We will be introducing a framework to trigger people's mindsets and to guide engagement. The framework will drive how the company is making it possible for its employees to impact sustainability as individuals and assess how successful IFS is at engaging its workforce behind the Impact Mindset:

  • Volunteering – All employees are given the opportunity to invest one workday a year to support a charitable cause of their choice. In 2023, we strive to have the equivalent of 3 years’ worth of work invested by our employees.
  • Employees – IFS has set the bar high against peers in the industry in terms of diversity in employee mix sets. For example, women make up 34% of the business, above the industry average for tech.
    We will continue to drive grass-roots programs such as the IFS Education Program to foster diversity across the industry. The health and wellbeing of employees remains top of mind, with a new program being launched for employees across the world and measured by twice annual employee surveys.
  • Governance: IFS have always maintained policies on Human Rights and Anti-Slavery, and will further ensure that this is not only in line with UN criteria and reporting and but also pervasively included in the education of its employees.
