About the speaker

Christian Kollinsky is co-author of WAVTEQ's 2018 study titled "How to identify inward investors that will have the biggest impact on Sustainable Development? A new Sustainable Development company index"

The study examines how investment promotion agencies and economic development organizations can identify potential investors that will make the strongest contribution to sustainable development.

Using the textiles industry as a case study, the report outlines a feasible and straightforward methodology to evaluate and rate companies regarding their commitment to sustainable development.
