To sum it up, I am an ESG pioneer possessing rare combination of skills – ESG, fund management and allocation. I ‘speak the same language’ with fund managers. I haven’t just followed the development of ESG but instead I have been developing market practices and contributed to the understanding of the concept of ESG.”
