Core to Our Business

Fit for Future by Transition and Transformation

In a world of rapid change, the imperative of sustainable resource management underpins our efforts at Mercer. We are committed to innovative solutions that prioritize sustainability from the ground up—whether through championing mass timber construction or delving into bio-based products like lignin.

These efforts are part of a comprehensive approach that aims to promote the circular economy, reduce emissions and have a positive impact on society and the environment. By pursuing these paths, we are not only contributing to global sustainability goals, but also positioning ourselves as a pioneer in a market that increasingly values environmentally conscious and innovative solutions.

Mercer's Vision of Sustainability

We understand that the world is changing and that we can influence the rate of change for the better. While our processes and global marketplace may be complex, our approach to operating our company is not. We believe in Mercer’s unified core purpose to align ourselves with what we believe is important in sustainability:

  • Continuous improvement in environmental performance
  • Mitigating climate change
  • Continuous improvement in resource efficiency
  • Sustainable forest management
  • Embracing social responsibility
  • Stakeholder engagement


In anticipation of the implementation of the European Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and in accordance with guidance from the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), we have started the process of updating our materiality assessment.

This will align with the double materiality standard and ensure compliance with the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) disclosure requirements.
