„The integration of ESG criteria into business is the new standard of corporate management in the 21st century. ESG creates value, contributes to a long-lasting success and increases firms‘ credibility for investors,“ says Mickaёl Compagnon, Managing Partner at Mazars in Slovakia.

„The aim of providing these services is to strategically support the responsible behaviour of companies on the market, in the community and with regard to the environment. We want to approach the topics of sustainability in a constructive and continual way. Therefore, it is my pleasure to welcome Jana, who will boost up our professional team at Mazars,“ he adds.

I am pleased to seize the opportunity to join Mazars´ ESG advisory team at a time when non-financial information about companies is becoming as important as the financial data. A change in business and people’s mindset is visible also in Slovakia. I am ready to embrace my global experience and offer it to companies operating in Slovakia and CEE. The plans to protect the climate, air and water; nature and the community are, in fact, plans to protect humanity and the quality of our lives.
