Leadership in Corporate Sustainability Survey
Mazars will once again be partnering with Board Agenda to deliver, in association with INSEAD, this year’s board-level survey and report: Leadership in Corporate Sustainability Survey.
Are boards giving sustainability issues the attention they deserve?
The purpose of the survey is to understand the level importance boards are attaching to issues of sustainability, how they believe it affects their companies, and what, if anything, is being done to further incorporate sustainability within the business.
“Sustainability should now be high on the agenda of boards across Europe, with the European Commission’s major initiative on sustainable finance and the emphasis given to it in the new UK Code of Corporate Governance. Focusing on sustainability makes good business sense in terms of meeting employee and customer expectations and avoiding expensive regulatory challenges. It also enables the business to make its best possible contribution to society.”
Anthony Carey, Partner and Head of Board Practice, Mazars
“Very few boards now dismiss sustainability, but integrating it into corporate governance and their business strategy remains challenging for many companies.”
Ron Soonieus, Executive-in-Residence, INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre

The survey results will be available in an online report due to be published in November 2018.

Board Leadership of Corporate Culture in Europe
Setting the right corporate tone from the top is seen as by far and away the most effective way to influence the culture in today’s businesses. Lead by example, and others will follow that lead. But research among European company board directors reveals that this belief is not being reinforced by action on how their businesses behaves.
Using the SDGs to Add Value to Business
When the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 169 targets were launched, the message was clear to all stakeholders of the world – governments, regulators, companies, and populations – we need to do more to protect the world for future generations. So where are we now, and how are companies reacting to this brave new world? Mazars’ Global Sustainability Leadership Team explores this and more in the Global Goals Yearbook 2018.
