Financial services consulting
Mazars’ regional financial services consulting team aims to assist clients in exploiting key growth opportunities to deliver superior economics
How do we work?
At Mazars, we can support financial institutions in responding to regulatory expectations, adhering to sustainability principles, and more broadly, navigating the complex risks and make the most of opportunities emerging from sustainability and climate change.
Our sustainable finance specialists advise financial services firms on the integration of ESG criteria into their business or investment decisions, for both the benefit of their future sustainability, and for the broader public interest.
Our sustainable finance services include:
At Mazars, we have developed a toolkit for the implementation of the various voluntary frameworks launched to scale up the contribution of the financial industry to meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement targets. Examples of frameworks include the UNEP FI Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) and the Green Investment Principles for China’s Belt and Road Initiative (GIP).
Across the world, financial institutions and investors should expect ever-tougher regulatory action on climate change and ESG criteria. In the UK, the Prudential Regulation Authority published its expectations for climate risk management in April 2019, and the Bank of England plans to launch climate stress tests in the UK in the second half of 2020 and publish the results in 2021. The European Commission, the EBA and other national regulators are also active in promoting better understanding and management of these risks.
To support financial institutions engaging in the transition and responding to regulatory requirements, our services cover:
Sustainable and responsible governance
Climate and ESG risk management
Climate and ESG disclosure and reporting
