Mike Boonen

Partner, Audit

KPMG in Belgium

As the lead of KPMG's Sustainability Reporting and Assurance Services, I cover all financial and non-financial aspects of integrated corporate communication, reporting, measurement and assurance and regularly contribute to the `KPMG Survey of Corporate Societal Responsibility Reporting’, and to the global KPMG Impact initiative to help clients fulfill their purpose and deliver against the Sustainable Development Goals.

At KPMG, I've gained extensive experience in auditing US GAAP, IFRS and BE GAAP financial statements as a Belgian certified auditor, helped establish the Board Leadership Center and the Sustainability Services in Belgium, providing expertise in corporate responsibility reporting and assurance, sustainable finance and in business and human rights.
