Why Choose ELS Europe?1111

Our aim is to be a valued and trusted strategic partner to our Clients helping to build environmental and socials stewardship, responsible governance, sound risk management and financial sustainability into systems and operations.


Strategic approach

At ELS Europe we understand that a strategic approach to managing material environmental, climate and social-related impacts, risks and opportunities is defined by an organisations objectives and principles relating to what it does, how and why it does it, the regulations it must abide by, and where its products and services are distributed.

Stakeholders are interested in things that affect organisations and how organisations interact with their environment, how they manage risk and the consequences of their actions. Ultimately, a good strategy informs stakeholders who wish to assess how an organisation conducts its business, minds its reputation, plans its future cash flows and therefore its prospects.

We believe that a cohesive sustainability strategy learns from the past, responds to the present and looks to the future. In our view the three strategic pillars of a good sustainability strategy are: the commitment of its employees at all levels, the key performance indicators (KPI’s) relevant to its activities, and the timelines for ambitious and achievable targets.

It follows that implementation of a good sustainability strategy should adhere to important principles of:

Accurate assessment of sustainability-related impacts, risks and opportunities.

Maintain relevance to all operational segments and economic activities.

Be built on a firm understanding of what good performance means including short-term to long-term progression and achievement of targets.

Enable and maintain consistency.

Encourage and support continual improvement and innovation.

Use digital technologies that are best suited to the needs of the preparer and users.
