Sarinee Achavanuntakul wears many hats — she’s a writer, translator and journalist who has combined her passion for economics, social ventures, business ethics and her green agenda into a career. An economics graduate from Harvard University, Sarinee worked in the well-paid finance industry, moved to sustainable businesses and social ventures, then made a mark in the media and literary fields. 

In 2011, she co-founded Thai Publica, an investigative news website, and last year she opened Sala Forest, Thailand’s first sustainable business research and advocacy firm. Sarinee regularly writes a business column about sustainable investment in Krungthep Thurakij, a respected business daily. She’s also a columnist on green business for environmental magazine Green World. In two months she’ll release two books: Roo Laew Plian (Know And Change), a collection of her columns from the Green World Foundation website, and a Thai translation of The Truth About Green Business by Gil Friend.
