Embedding sustainability and ESG in your business strategy

A sustainability strategy is the integration of environmental, social, governance and economic goals into your business plan with the aim of creating long-term value for your organization, your stakeholders and the wider society. All this while sustaining and enhancing our natural resources for future generations. As awareness of ESG issues increases, many companies are seeking to implement and embed these principles into their operations. With ESG covering a wide range of topics, such as climate change, human rights, consumer protection, employee relations and responsible management, it is important to focus on those that matter most for your organization.

Our approach

Companies are increasingly adopting sustainable strategies that consider environmental, social and governance issues as part of their day-to-day operations. As the world pays greater attention to how companies behave, it is imperative to have an effective strategy in place. Our team can provide the advice and guidance needed to embed and develop a sustainability framework in the core of your business.

Particularly, at Mazars in Denmark, we help companies of all sizes develop a long-term and solid ESG strategy with realistic KPIs that is tailored to your business, as well as aligned with the relevant regulatory requirements, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the principles of the UN Global Compact.

We combine our extensive knowledge of ESG matters with our expertise in business to provide you with the advice and support you need when developing a sustainability strategy. Our team works in an integrated and collaborative manner, with a focus on tailoring the service to ensure it provides the best solution for you.
