SRI-CONNECT launches interactive SRI “map” of Brazil – December 7, 2012

On December 7, 2012, SRI-CONNECT published an interactive SRI “map” of Brazil.  The map includes hyperlinks to the following organizations:  asset managers, asset owners, brokers, companies, BM&FBOVESPA’s ISE (Corporate Sustainability Index), Portuguese speaking SRI analysts ex Brazil, the PRI team in Brazil, research agencies and others.  Registered users can access the interactive map on SRI-CONNECT.

This is SRI-CONNECT’s first emerging market SRI map.

Mike Tyrrell, Editor, SRI-CONNECT notes, “On my recent trip to Sao Paulo, I was struck by how much the international SRI community can learn from the current Brazilian experience and vice versa.  Hopefully, the publication of this simple ‘map’ will give international investors and companies an easy point of introduction to the organisations, the ideas and, most importantly, the people behind SRI in Brazil.

SRI-CONNECT’s broader goal is to facilitate exchange of research and best practice between different parts of the world and so, as new centres of SRI activity emerge, we hope to publish new ‘maps’ to reflect this during 2013.”
