The Code of Conduct lays out the expectations of ethical behavior
The KPMG Global Code of Conduct outlines the expectations of ethical behavior for all our people, built on the foundation of the KPMG Values, our shared set of beliefs and principles. The Global Code applies to all KPMG partners and employees—regardless of title or position—and serves as a road map to help guide actions and behaviors while working at KPMG. It spells out fundamental ethical principles and highlights resources available to help partners and employees understand and uphold those principles.
The original Global Code of Conduct was first established in 2005 and has since then evolved to reflect developments in law, regulation and professional ethics and to meet the changing needs of the markets and communities we serve. It sets out how we should act as individuals and as leaders.
Our Vision is to be the Clear Choice for our people, clients and the public. The Global Code reflects our commitment to quality and excellence with a long-term mindset. Importantly, the Global Code does not simply set the standards for our professionals to meet legal and regulatory obligations — it goes beyond compliance and sets a far higher benchmark to help ensure we meet our public interest responsibility and leave KPMG better than we found it for the generations that will follow us.
