Helping companies place sustainability at the centre of their business

Sustainability has evolved substantially in recent years. Good corporate governance and social responsibility are not simply rooted in doing the right thing, they also bring with them performance benefits. We help companies address their sustainability strategies from design and embedding to reporting and assurance.

How we can help

Our approach

Sustainability creates exciting opportunities for companies. It can improve corporate resilience, create economic value and contribute to a healthy ecosystem and strong community. As more businesses embrace sustainability, organisations will need to implement higher standards of governance and gain a full understanding of their social and environmental impact in order to remain competitive.

A solid sustainability approach requires a clear strategy, good governance and quality corporate reporting that addresses the full gamut of environmental, social and governance (ESG) based issues. This will result in clear benefits: increased trust, a competitive edge, greater employee engagement, less waste through improved business processes and loyalty and support from stakeholders.

Depending on where your business is in its sustainability journey, we will assemble a team of area specialists that is focused on your unique needs and can offer solutions aligned with your goals.  Whether it’s supply chain awareness, carbon mapping, climate change risk assessments or diversity promotion, we have the expertise and experience to deliver solutions that will support companies for the long-term. We believe our bespoke approach means you’ll always have the right experts for the right project.

At Mazars, we offer a wide array of sustainability services to meet your needs, including:

  • Reporting & assurance: Providing audit and assurance solutions for sustainability and human rights reporting, certification for green and social bonds, and assurance over all forms of carbon reporting
  • Strategy & due diligence: Assistance with developing strategies and business models aligned with best practice ESG principles, as well as due diligence services to ensure compliance
  • Implementation & transformation: Advice and guidance to help your organisation through a period of change and ensure that it is truly embracing its ethical and sustainable ethos

Sustainable finance: supporting financial institutions to respond to regulatory expectations, adhering to sustainability principles, and more broadly, navigating the complex risks and making the most of opportunities emerging from the transition to a sustainable future.

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is now in force across the EU, with Member States given 18 months to adopt it into national law. The highly-anticipated directive requires a number of companies operating in the EU to publicly disclose and report on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
