Welcome to ADS Insight!

We are ADS Insight, an independent, B Corp certified, EU public affairs consultancy with more than 20 years of experience. We have two complementary business strands that 1) bridge the business and policy interface and 2) bridge the science and policy interface. As facilitators of dialogue, we offer EU policy advisory and government relations services, including support on EU funding applications. We are also organisers of events and large science-based congresses.

We are a boutique consultancy, meaning we operate as a small family-like business with strong values and a commitment to work alongside organisations who think like we do.
A boutique consultancy
Our job, geared towards Advocacy, Dialogue and Sustainability (A-D-S), is to help companies and organisations understand EU regulations that affect their activities. We help them contribute to the processes that shape those regulations, and improve legislation so that sustainable policies are created to protect people, the planet and global economic prosperity. We strive towards laying strong foundations for today, and for the future.
Sustainability is at the core of all our activities
Founded in 2001, ADS Insight is headquartered in the heart of Brussels with regional offices in Germany, Sweden, and Poland. Our international, multilingual team are experts in sectors such as health, one health approach, circular economy, transport, energy, digital and education.
An international company headquartered in Brussels
ADS Insight is proud to be a certified B Corporation since September 2022. B is for Benefit in the sense of having a beneficial impact. As a Benefit Corporation, we prioritise purpose over profit. This is written into our company statutes and our activities have been audited by B Lab in four key areas: Social, Environmental, Corporate Governance and Legal. In all these four areas, we are obliged, and committed to upholding B Corp standards, to demonstrate impact and show continuous improvement year on year.

What we do

If you have activities in the European Union, then EU policies concern you. EU policies are the most advanced in the world. Many stem from international UN conventions, but the EU often goes beyond international regulations and creates new, more ambitious standards. We advise you on what’s coming up and what to expect, and help you navigate the “EU bubble”.

The protection of wildlife against the consequences of oil spills and pollution, mentoring of social entrepreneurs in their sustainable business practices, promotion of local artists through our annual Vernissage - these are a few examples of our engagement.
