The ESG era: “S” for social
The trilogy continues! This second story seeks shedding light over the social aspects of the ESG framework, which are as varied as the environmental ones.
SDG 9 “Industry, innovation and infrastructure”
The success of SDG no. 9 depends on how good we are at helping each other. It is especially difficult for the least developed countries to contribute as they do not have the same resources to accelerate a development to meet the target by 2030. Least developed countries are known as low-income countries that struggles with poor infrastructure and sustainable development in general.
On the contrary many European countries are categorised as more developed countries and that means we have an obligation to help prosper achievement of SDG no 9 in other countries with less opportunities.
A good example is the internet. Many people take the internet for granted. Think for a second how much time you spend daily being online? But there are still countries where it is not even an option. During the last year with Covid-19, we have seen how access to technology has made the difference in whether teaching, remote work, meetings, etc. have been maintained in some parts of the world, and in others not at all. Imagine how other countries can help by investing in innovation and technological ideas. Investments in research and development are growing but not fast enough. Together, with a good and comprehensive infrastructure the industry can prosper and accelerate in time to meet the targets.
Mazars has an ambition to innovate with a sustainable mindset constantly in all countries represented by our presence. That includes less developed countries and by that contributes to the shared target.
Our initiatives at Mazars globally include, among others:
