Before working at SEI, he worked as a research analyst for Jantzi Research in Toronto, Canada. Jantzi Research provides ethical investment research and his focus was on special projects to provide environmental, social and governance screening of investment portfolios.
During 2006, he was appointed to the City of Toronto “Community Environmental Assessment Team”, a five-year committee guiding the City’s assessment for the management of residual solid waste under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. After actively serving for seven months, a return to Sweden meant that he had to step-down from the committee.
While a research intern with SEI in 2005, he co-authored the report on the Millennium Development Goals entitled “Sustainable Pathways to Attain the Millennium Development Goals – Assessing the Role of Water, Energy and Sanitation”.
He has a Bachelor’s degree in Geography from Queen’s University, Canada, and a Master of Science in Geography from the University of Toronto. His graduate research was focused on carbon sequestration capacity enhancement and its economic policy implications at a study site in Guizhou Province, China.
