With our 2018 Yearbook, part of our 2017-2018 Group Annual Report, we take a step back and reflect on our international development and growth. We also dive into who we are, our history and values, taking this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to being #MazarsForGood – that is a global citizen devoted to having a positive impact on the world and communities in which we operate. We are dedicated to contributing to society in the best possible way, whether through providing quality services to our clients to help them achieve sustainable growth, enabling our talented people to reach their highest potential, or contributing to the public debate with positive insights for the future.
At Mazars, more than ever, we believe that businesses can thrive only by creating shared value for all their stakeholders. Publishing our 2017 Yearbook is a way to take stock of what we have achieved this past year.
As a part of our 2016-2017 Annual Report, it also aims at providing a clear and global image of who we are and how we prepare the future. From open innovation to stewardship, from the future of the audit profession to our teams' perspective on the future, we have chosen to shed light from various angles on the notion of transformation.
Mazars’ 2016 Yearbook, part of the Group’s 2015-2016 Annual Report, is a journey through topics that are of paramount importance to us: leadership and entrepreneurship. Each article can be read alone, but all are closely tied to the concept of a Modern Firm. In order to illustrate this concept, we have chosen to explore four attributes, which define a modern firm: discerning, knowledge-intensive, agile and sustainable. Join our staff, our partners, our clients and all our other guests in this journey, from Rotterdam to Shanghai via Milan and Casablanca.
