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.

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 reporting;
  • Strategy & due diligence: Assistance with developing strategies and business models aligned with best practice ESG principles, as well as due diligence and regulatory services to ensure compliance with European and International regulations;
  • Implementation & transformation: Training, advice and guidance to help your organisation through a period of change and ensure that it is truly embracing its ethical and sustainable ethos.

We understand that the journey towards sustainability is multifaceted and dynamic, requiring constant adaptation and evolution. Therefore, we are dedicated to staying at the forefront of sustainability trends and practices, continually expanding our expertise to address emerging challenges and opportunities including sustainability risk.

One key area of focus for Mazars is the integration of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs within corporate sustainability frameworks. We recognize that fostering diverse and inclusive workplaces is not only a moral imperative but also a strategic business advantage. Research consistently shows that diverse teams drive innovation, enhance decision-making processes, and ultimately contribute to better financial performance. As such, we work closely with our clients to develop and implement DEI initiatives that align with their sustainability goals, helping them build more resilient and socially responsible organizations.

Furthermore, Mazars is actively engaged in promoting the principles of the circular economy—a regenerative approach aimed at minimizing waste and maximizing resource efficiency. Through our advisory services and partnerships with industry leaders, we assist companies in transitioning towards circular business models, identifying opportunities to redesign products, processes, and supply chains for greater sustainability. By embracing the circular economy principles, businesses can reduce their environmental footprint, drive cost savings, and create new revenue streams, all while contributing to a more sustainable future.

In line with our commitment to transparency and accountability, Mazars also specializes in ESG audit and non-financial reporting, helping companies accurately assess and communicate their sustainability performance. Our team of experienced auditors and sustainability experts utilizes industry-leading ESG reporting frameworks and methodologies to conduct thorough assessments, providing stakeholders with reliable information to inform investment decisions and drive positive social and environmental outcomes.

As the regulatory landscape continues to evolve, particularly with the introduction of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), Mazars remains at the forefront of regulatory compliance and reporting best practices. We offer tailored solutions to help companies navigate the complexities of ESG disclosure requirements, ensuring they meet regulatory obligations while leveraging sustainability as a strategic differentiator in the marketplace.

Additionally, Mazars recognizes the importance of green IT and green computing in reducing the environmental impact of information technology systems. By promoting energy-efficient hardware, optimizing data center operations, and implementing sustainable IT practices, organizations can significantly reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future. Our team of IT specialists works closely with clients to develop and implement green IT strategies, helping them minimize energy consumption, reduce electronic waste, and maximize the environmental benefits of their IT infrastructure.

In summary, Mazars is dedicated to empowering companies to place sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at the center of their business operations, driving long-term value creation and positive impact for society and the environment. Through our comprehensive range of services and our unwavering commitment to excellence, we partner with our clients to build a more sustainable and resilient future for generations to come.
