    Use of pronouns

    Hi,

    please see the following text and let me know which pronoun should be used in the marked spot.

    Advising the client on the set-up of its cross-border business of collection of waste oils. Our task is to advise the client in regulatory and corporate matters and to help xxxxx (his, her, its) obtain all the necessary approvals for collection and procession of waste oils, which is a strictly regulated business in Slovenia, due to its impacts on environment.

    Many thanks,
    Nina

    None of these works. You need an object pronoun, not a possessive.

    I think 'them' would be correct.

    The first sentence is not a sentence.
