ECOFACT has been helping clients understand environmental and human rights risks in their relationships with other companies, since 1998.

ECOFACT was founded as a spin-off of a leading Swiss bank in Zurich in 1998. Since then, our team has grown to include driven individuals with a diverse range of backgrounds from environmental engineering to political science and law.

This broad skillset gives us a comprehensive understanding of how to address the risks and opportunities that accompany environmental, social, and governance issues.

We work primarily for banks, insurers, institutional investors, international standard-setters, and other businesses and organizations across the globe.


By combining market-leading research with unique advisory experience, we strive to be a catalyst in the transition towards a sustainable economy.

What do regulators and standard-setters expect of you? How do you comply with regulatory requirements governing sustainability and corporate responsibility?

Which ESG issues require your attention and why? How do you identify and monitor ESG issues and risks, and manage them appropriately?

How are your peers approaching these challenges? How do you adapt your due diligence tools and processes, and screen portfolios to comply with sector practices?

We conduct market-leading research to provide answers to questions like these.

This gives us the necessary know-how to advise, support, and supply custom solutions to our clients. Our advice is reliable, pragmatic, and creative: It allows our clients to define and further their sustainable finance and/or corporate responsibility strategies—and to operate the corresponding management systems as effectively as possible.
