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 collect a catalogue of examples of SRI in practice in emerging markets;
To raise awareness about SRI in emerging markets;
To reflect on what SRI in emerging markets means to practitioners; and
To enable SRI practitioners in emerging markets to network with peers around the world.
This week’s interview is with Priya Bala-Miller, Director, International Program, Shareholder Association for Research and Education (SHARE), Vancouver, Canada.
