Helping Enhesa achieve its high growth plans
Sustainability is high on the agenda at Deloitte Financial Advisory, which is advising on multiple projects for clients working to provide sustainable solutions to the world’s challenges. So when Enhesa – an environmental, health & safety (EHS) regulatory compliance provider – wanted to look for a partner to support its ambitious growth plans, the company turned to Deloitte for advisory services.
Today’s increasingly globalised companies need to cope with ever-more complex EHS compliance requirements. Enhesa, the market leader in global EHS compliance assurance, supports businesses worldwide, helping them become more sustainable. With offices in Belgium, the US and Japan, it keeps companies informed, provides advice, develops benchmarking tools, and delivers audit and management support to well over 500 clients.
Following an introduction through the Deloitte network, Deloitte Financial Advisory was chosen and received the mandate to act as the exclusive M&A adviser to find the right partner and help Enhesa accelerate its international growth strategy. The company was convinced by the industry expertise, hands-on approach and impressive investor access via the Deloitte network. The Financial Advisory team organised a limited but competitive auction process with a set of domestic and international bidders. Ultimately, Waterland won the bid, purchasing a majority stake in Enhesa.
I think it’s an excellent example of the way we think alongside our client and translate strategy into a clear-cut equity story to attract the right partners.

Enhesa CEO Peter Hermans commented, “With Waterland as a partner, we are convinced we can accelerate our growth plans. They offer the expertise and capital we require.”
Serge Prosman, Deloitte Financial Advisory Partner, added, “We are proud to have contributed to Enhesa’s mission to bring sustainable EHS regulatory compliance to global businesses. I think it’s an excellent example of the way we think alongside our client and translate strategy into a clear-cut equity story to attract the right partners.”
Our collaboration with Deloitte enabled us to attract the right partner and leverage our international growth.
