Innovation in Sport for Sustainability (IS4S)

Sport is more than a game and an economic sector. It’s an innovative platform to advance sustainable development.

Mazars’ advisory services to governmental organizations, corporations, athletes, clubs and affiliates, as well as the Olympics, FIFA and other sport entities, have expanded to harness this global phenomenon as an effective tool to support sustainability. 

By working with the private, public, and non-profit sectors we can enhance sport’s contribution to the three pillars of sustainability: social, economic, and environmental. 

We help design and implement innovative and integrated sustainability and sport initiatives, aiming to have a robust, positive impact on society and the environment as well as producing economic benefits at the micro and macro levels.
