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 Aldo Bonati, Head of Research, ECPI.
