Welcome to Elm Sustainability Partners LLC

Welcome to Elm Sustainability Partners LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Elm Consulting Group International LLC.

Based in Connecticut, Elm Sustainability Partners was created in 2012 to focus on sustainability services, including conflict minerals advisory and independent private sector audits (IPSAs).

Our involvement in conflict minerals services began in 2010 as one of the original three audit firms selected by the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC – now known as the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative or CFSI) to conduct Conflict-Free Smelter audits.  Since then we have grown into one of the world’s most recognized conflict minerals experts and have advised numerous Fortune 50, 250 and 500 companies.

We take a unique approach to other sustainability services as we don’t adhere to any particular sustainability standard or definition.  Each client and situation involves business fundamentals, measurable value/returns and maintaining realistic expectations.

The creation of Elm Sustainability Partners further strengthened our internal  structure for independence as an auditor.  We ensure our services do not create risk of impairment to our clients.  We recuse ourselves from audit engagements where we have substantively participated in the development of the relevant program and related support.
