Our solid common ESG foundations

At Wavestone, we don’t see sustainability as a topic apart from others: concern for our natural or societal environment can never be just an afterthought. As such, being a responsible corporate actor ranks alongside cultivating client relationships and increasing revenue as one of our core business goals. It is our stated ambition to be among the top 5% of best-performing companies on sustainability.

We’ve long thought this way – as is proven by our recent history: our first sustainability rating was secured by Wavestone in France over a decade ago. Ever since then, we have been constantly striving to secure continuous improvement in this area, while growing.

At Wavestone, our sustainability commitment is based on four key pillars: Sustainable growth and performance, people-centric culture, social commitment, and environmental impact. These aren’t just lofty ambitions, but rather foundational elements which are already core features of Wavestone today driving our action and ambitions.

In each of these pillars, ambitious goals towards which we are on course – and achievements of which we are proud. Find out more about the four pillars of sustainability at Wavestone.

A core plank of our corporate strategy is to create positive, lasting impacts for all our stakeholders – clients, employees, and society more broadly. As an ethical, civic-minded firm, we aim to be at the forefront of best practice in social and environmental responsibility.

We proactively contribute to the sustainability goals of the UN Global Compact we have been a member of for more than a decade.
