Elena Lambros is a partner in our Ashurst Risk practice, Australia
Elena leads Ashurst Risk's Sustainability and Climate Change practice and works with clients to implement sustainable, agile and effective risk management that supports the achievement of business strategies and commitments in relation to sustainability, net zero and climate positive targets, while ensuring regulatory and compliance obligations are met.
Our sustainability practice includes sustainability, climate change and social license risks. It avoids traditional practice silos and brings together teams of professionals to advise on regulatory, judicial and governance changes, including stakeholder and community expectations as well as risks that are hard to place or measure, yet are very real for customers, investors and employees. Elena focuses on specialist risk advisory services, optimising risk strategy to facilitate consistent risk-based decision making and operationalising these decisions across the organisation to address the complex challenges associated with sustainability, climate change and social license risks .
In her senior leadership roles, Elena has led large multi-disciplinary teams in scoping, planning and executing on large-scale complex client projects to manage regulatory risk, strategic risk, respond and remediate, and to operationalise new regulatory, risk and compliance requirements.
