Investing Sustainably in Emerging Markets

NordSIP hosted a round table with six professional investors who discussed the ins and outs of sustainable investing in emerging markets.

In this report, you will find out how ‘ESG’ translates in emerging markets, starting with ‘G’ of course, but not forgetting ‘E’ and ‘S’. From there, the discussions expands into the ‘SDGs’ and investors point out the danger for ‘SDG-washing’.

For dessert, the spotlight is cast upon the investment horizon. How long-term does an investor have to be in order to achieve impact? Not as long as you may think!
