Transformational change is underway across all sectors of the global economy. For our non-financial clients, ELS Europe provides technical, policy, and sustainability-related disclosures support needed to respond to societal, regulatory and stakeholder expectations and demands.  In particular, we help you to comply with regulatory disclosure requirements and respond to the information needs of the financial sector.  We thereby help our clients to transition their business model, accessing adequate capital.

‘Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

But the “environment” is where we all live; and “development” is what we all do in attempting to improve our lot within that abode. The two are inseparable’ 

[Bruntland Commission’s Report, “Our Common Future”, 1987]
