Accelerate the consideration of ESG and impact on investors and their business ecosystem
The economic world is facing more and more disruption and challenges: global warming, loss of biodiversity or even widening inequalities. However, we are meeting a growing number of investors who want to be part of the solution rather than the problem: they are reinventing their mission and initiating positive steps, in an unprecedented moment of social and environmental change. We believe in the strength of this transformation driven by financial players, who are vectors of systemic change. We support them to accelerate their consideration of ESG and impact, both in their investment approach and within their business portfolio. We hope in this way to help build a resilient and engaged ecosystem of investors and companies, from start-ups to mid-size companies.
Elodie created Better Way in 2019 to develop a consulting activity on a subject that fascinates her: the ESG transformation & impact of investors and SMEs in France. She spent ten years at Investisseurs & Partenaires , a pioneering impact investor. She held various positions there (investment, finance) before initiating the ESG approach and the impact of I&P. Since 2009, she has observed the development of the impact sector and has contributed to various emblematic works on this subject (EVPA, FIR / France Invest, etc.). It now intends to disseminate ESG & impact best practices to a wider spectrum of financial players and companies.
