Each week Emerging Markets ESG publishes an interview entitled, “Five Questions about SRI.” The interview features a practitioner’s insights about SRI in emerging markets and through Emerging Markets ESG shares this expertise with a wide global audience. 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 Natalie Beinisch, Academic Manager, Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
