The goals of Five Questions about SRI are fourfold:
To reflect on what SRI in emerging markets means to practitioners;
To collect a catalogue of examples of SRI in practice in emerging markets;
To raise awareness about SRI in emerging markets; and
To enable SRI practitioners in emerging markets to network with peers around the world.
This week’s interview is with Miroslaw Izienicki, President & Group CEO, Fifth Capital, London, United Kingdom.
