With the contributions of scores of thought leaders, ELC’s officers and directors wrote the book: Earth Law: Emerging Ecocentric Law— A Guide for Practitioners.

Our Services

All of our client services are co-developed to ensure the most expedient and efficient process for...

Nature Governance and Corporate Consulting

The ecological polycrisis is caused by market-driven human activities. The corporate, economic, financial, legal, private and public sectors are all reliant on the Earth. It is evident that Nature must be integrated in decision-making processes to achieve ecological harmonious living.

Our team works with corporate decision-makers to determine how the expression of the voice of Nature may catalyze systemic change, to achieve strategic, complex, and transformational goals; including SDGs, ESG, CSR and Nature-related treaty compliance. .

Training and Education

Legal professionals in corporate systems and private practice, alongside NGOs, public institutions, and grassroots Earth lawyers are driving the movement toward ecocentric law and governance.

Our team offers workshops, orientations, symposia, as well as strategic planning and individual training, to support its clients on their journey towards holistic Nature governance.

Movement Building and Practice

Earth ethics is the moral backbone of Earth law and Earth jurisprudence. Practicing Earth law demands collective action towards balancing an Earth ethos with the profit driven ethos of corporate law and legal systems. The interstitial space is a void that will be filled by emerging corporate Earth law.

Our team offers coaching, mentoring and evaluative services to individuals and teams, towards building an Earth law based ethical praxis and a community of practice, as well as nurturing eco-driven alliances and missions.

Corporate Consulting
& Nature Governance

Nature Governance integrates the voice and the way of Nature in the decision-making, strategic planning, and culture of an organization. It is an innovative journey in our collective efforts to respect, harmonize and make peace with Nature; to reverse biodiversity loss, and to transform the human activities that have caused climate change. Leaders, decision-makers, policy influencers, directors and managers are empowered to shepherd the evolution of their organization as a force for common good; through four Nature governance frameworks.

Nature on the Board

Under this framework, the voice of Nature is brought at the strategic and decision-making table, and can include Nature as Director (NAD), Nature as Advisory Counsel (NAC)
