Empowering positive change for our communities, focusing our efforts on Indigenous Australia, Mental Health, Climate Action and Lifelong Learning.
Corporate Citizenship aims to create positive and lasting impacts for our communities.
KPMG Australia harnesses the passion and capabilities of our people to empower positive change with our clients and in our communities.
We believe that our nation can never reach its full potential until everyone has equal access to opportunity. Our Corporate Citizenship approach focuses our efforts on driving change for Indigenous Australia, Mental Health, Climate Action and Lifelong Learning, and the founding principle to leave no-one behind.
Underpinning our approach are the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a global blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for people and planet. By following the SDG framework business will prosper. When we acknowledge the interdependency of our world and bring everyone on the journey, we mitigate risk, open up new markets and bring hope to future generations.
