Shedding a light on a topic of deep interest to Mazars, we commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to examine the relationship between regulation and sustainability. In this article, the way in which sustainability can be both measured and encouraged via regulation is researched, as well as the differences between countries and regions in adopting sustainable practices.

In this article, the rapid expansion of technologies around sustainability practice and reporting – from ESG-themed data mining to blockchain voting – is explored.
