Sustainability services

MzN is the climate impact partner for businesses serious about sustainability. We are a leading advisory practice in sustainability, climate, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters.

Anchored in over 10 years of experience, we help our clients with green business building.

Why choose MzN as your sustainability partner?

MzN’s mission is to make doing good better. For the past 10 years we have worked extensively across the not-for-profit sector, building charities and organisations that are fit to respond to the challenges they set out to address. It has become increasingly apparent that what we do is no longer confined to the world of NGOs.

We have entered the decisive decade and the need for us all to build a more inclusive and net-zero economy has never been greater. The idea that sustainability is handled by the not-for-profit sector or only as part of a corporate social responsibility (CSR) project is outdated, it needs to be part of a greater commitment to be sustainable across our value chains.

We understand that building an environmentally sustainable business, both small and large, is a major commitment, but the starting point is simply understanding what position you are in right now. We aim to guide our partners through the journey from that initial assessment to the point they are proud of their climate credentials. MzN International’s experience in organisational change gives us the understanding that culture is as important as structure in this process. All of our support includes organisational culture engagement since we believe that cultural change is what really makes sustainability self-sustaining.

The business case for sustainability

Whilst many sustainable business practises are driven by law and obligation, our partners understand that sustainable organisations have benefits beyond those of environmental impact.

In our experience, sustainable businesses become more efficient, they improve their reputation and build stronger brand value and loyalty. We see our sustainable partners experience stronger growth, as well as attract engaged staff and strengthen stakeholder relations. In short, sustainability is more than just a tagline, it is a key competitive competency.

We have seen that a strong commitment to a sustainable future drives value-creation and is the single largest and scalable contributor to restoring our planet.

A sustainable outlook is both profitable and necessary for the following industries:

Electric and hybrid products, robust supply chains, CO2-neutral production and innovative mobility concepts are as much of a challenge to the industry as the financial-return demands expected by shareholders and investors. Yet both the environmental and fiscal goals will only be met if the automotive industry drives towards sustainability.

Customers, regulators, investors and employees demand fair finance, inclusive access, diversity and green financial products. This can be the basis of a lasting competitive advantage and, more importantly, is better for the planet, too.

The most sustainable company in the world is currently an energy producer. Regulators and customers demand not only renewable and affordable energy, but also sustainable and regenerative management approaches from producers.

Meeting these challenges makes sense and lowers the cost of capital, as well as the costs to the climate.

It is just as challenging, as it is a demanded by customers, investors and regulators. Customers increasingly expect their products to be sustainable. Fortunately, retailers can provide more transparency and accountability, securing their competitiveness.

The sector produces about 40% of all carbon emissions, which not only means heightened responsibility for manufacturers, but also a significant opportunity to secure customer loyalty and establish a lasting competitive advantage.

Where chemical producers committed to sustainability and a circular economy in their operations and strategy, they have been rewarded with increased stock performance, and significant risk and cost reductions.

Future-proof social compliance management in the supply chain

The trend towards the ESG and the sustainability expectations of consumers and regulatory pressures have intensified.

Sustainability and human rights-related risks in the supply chain can have fatal legal, as well as reputational, repercussions.
