Floris has worked for eight years as a management consultant with KPMG Global Sustainability Services in the Netherlands. In 2005 he was a member of the Expert Panel of the Principles for Responsible Investment. He completed an MBA program on Environmental Management in 1999 at the TSM Business School, and worked as a research assistant for James Cameron at the Foundation of International Environmental Law and Development (FIELD) in London.

Floris has published several articles in national and international newspapers and magazines on corporate responsibility and responsible investment.
My reasons for joining the network are twofold: I would like to make a practical contribution to the increasing understanding by the financial markets that human and environmental concerns do matter by sharing thoughts and producing articles of interest. My specialties are policy & implementation (e.g. screening asset managers on RI, selecting proxy voting services providers) and reporting on RI. The other side of the coin would be to learn from the others in the network on a number of specific areas: clean technology/private equity, sustainable real estate, independent energy in developing countries and microfinance.
