The Environmental, Social, and Governance framework (ESG) is considered the gold standard for the functioning of a company in the 21st century. It promotes awareness of and responsibility towards the environment, social issues, and ethical governance.
The ESG framework was adopted by Elias Neocleous & Co LLC from its inception and continues to be integrated into day-to-day operations across all teams. Mindful of the firm’s environmental and social responsibility as well as its commitment to provide top-quality service to its clients which is determined by the standard of its governance, Elias Neocleous & Co LLC has consistently made efforts to stay up to date with the latest developments of ESG policies. It is through these efforts, which include reducing carbon footprint, promoting gender equality, and remaining true to its ethical values, that the practice has managed to build a strong reputation as one of the largest law firms in South-Eastern Europe and the East Mediterranean, and recognized worldwide.
An article co-authored by Associate Katerina Pillakouri and Iosifina Koutsonikola expands on the measures taken by Elias Neocleous & Co LLC to incorporate ESG strategies in line with global trends, strengthening the credibility and sustainability of Cyprus as an international business centre.
