About SRI Portfolio

I blog about the world of business driven Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is about how investors and professionals can utilize screening and risk management methods in their work. In the process I will present alternative ways of doing ethical screenings and at the same time make sound investments.

The world of CSR is filled with misperceptions and anecdotes about what works and what doesn’t. I have a firm believe that “doing good also can lead to doing well” but that there are so many different people that have a stake in defining business driven CSR that companies and organizations alike have difficulty navigating the muddy waters.

I have a background in consulting and as a Assistant Professor I’m teaching and doing research within Strategic CSR, Risk Management, Communication, Management and not least Business development in developing and emerging markets. I have a M.Sc. Business Administration and Communication from Copenhagen Business School and a minor in Sustainable business from Center for CSR studies from the same university. Currently I’m found at Zeeland Institute of Business and Technology.

In my personal life I’m married to my beautiful wife Ditte who have given me two great kids Noah and Silas. We all live in a house outside Copenhagen in Denmark.
