Governance, Risk, Compliance and Sustainability

With increasing regulation, businesses are required to identify and manage risks as well as demonstrate their transparency, ethical behaviour and long-term sustainability. At Mazars, we help clients address and manage all issues relating to the governance, risk management, compliance and sustainability of each unique organisation. We apply practical and effective solutions, working closely with you to address your needs and ensure the latest regulations and guidelines are followed.


At Mazars, we help organisations become more risk resilient by bringing a disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the risk management, control and governance process. We have vast experience of providing internal audit services and understand that every organisation is unique – and the approach and focus of the internal audit function should be tailored accordingly.


Any significant business obstacle can threaten a company or prevent strategic objectives from being achieved. We assist in identifying and addressing these key internal and external risks, while adding value to your organisation. Our services help organisations become more risk resilient by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes. Working internationally, organisations are faced with exponentially more external risks and controls, so assurance from experienced risk management professionals becomes even more crucial.


With the regulatory shift towards conduct risk, a bigger focus on event driven work and the regulator’s new powers of product intervention, it is imperative that your compliance framework enables you to identify and address issues before they cause harm. We understand that every business's compliance needs are unique, so we deliver a bespoke and personal service. Our core aim is to understand what you are trying to achieve and provide efficient and effective solutions.


Companies’ success is no longer measured solely by the yardstick of their financial performance – having a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy has never been so critical. We help our clients implement effective CSR strategies and offer them a range of sustainable services, adapted to their specific needs and attuned to local cultural and legal settings. Within our sustainability services we advise on areas such as human rights, anti-bribery & corruption, environment and health & safety.
