Covering pertinent areas of sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) this forward-looking book examines SRI in developing markets including its evolution, principles and concepts. It explores the drivers and challenges in developing economies and analyses the theoretical underpinnings to critical issues pertaining to SRI.

This timely book investigates investment strategies and philosophies that attempt to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns into investment decision-making. In turn it provides an in-depth review of a number of different motivations for SRI, including: personal values and goals, institutional missions, and the demands of clients, constituents or plan participants. Sustainable and Responsible Investment in Developing Markets further defines how to integrate ESG issues into investment portfolios, looking to sustainable and responsible investors with a focus on financial performance, who believe in using these investments to promote ESG practices.

With a focus on sustainability in relation to business and investment, this expansive book will be a useful guide for finance, business, environment, geography and innovation students, and researchers, practitioners, and policymakers interested in understanding sustainable and responsible investment, specifically for developing countries.

‘This edited volume presents an excellent contribution to the emerging area of sustainable and responsible investment (SRI), especially as it focuses on developing countries. It is a useful resource for researchers, policymakers, international development agencies, practitioners and university students. It presents an encyclopedic coverage of the main issues on SRI. I am glad to endorse this book and recommend it to everyone interested in understanding SRI in developing economies.’
– Victor Murinde, SOAS University of London, UK

‘At a time when issues pertaining to sustainable and ethical investment are assuming increasing global priority, this book could not be more relevant. Focusing on sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) in developing economies, the book fills a gap in the development and finance literatures with expert and incisive analysis of the relevance of SRI to sectors such as banking, insurance, energy, tourism and agriculture. It will prove to be an essential resource for investors and policymakers as well as everyone else who is concerned about how private investment can be aligned with environmental sustainability and social objectives. I strongly recommend it.’
