A publication from Emerging Markets ESP
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 Paul Clements-Hunt, Head, United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI).
UNEP FI is a strategic public-private partnership between the United Nations Environment Programme and the global financial sector. It is the oldest partnership between the United Nations and the financial sector. Through UNEP FI, UNEP works with nearly 200 banks, insurers and investors worldwide to understand the impacts of environmental, social and governance issues on financial performance and sustainable development. With a global work programme encompassing research, training and events, UNEP FI carries out its mission to embed best sustainability practice in core strategies and operations of financial institutions.
