All organizations have a corporate responsibility to carry out, by positively contributing to our common environment and society. Most organizations are also confronted with the impact of megatrends, such as climate change, pervasive environmental degradation, chronic social inequalities and injustice and, more recently, the coronavirus pandemic.

Our common sustainable development goals, these megatrends, the urgency of the recent pandemic crisis and the climate crisis ahead are forcing us to focus on the future we want.  Our social, political and economic structures are having to pivot hard and fast to keep up. With disruption, however, comes opportunity to do things differently – to dramatically reshape and improve the trajectory of our world. Furthermore, actively managing the realization of opportunities and the handling of risks increases the market value of companies, leads to cost savings and innovation.

KPMG IMPACT in this context helps governments, businesses, and investors develop new ways of working that fulfill their purpose and contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) so that our diverse communities can thrive and prosper.

It brings together an experienced network of professionals from across KPMG to deliver industry leading practices, research and trusted client solutions that address the biggest issues facing our planet, having a real and positive impact today and on our collective future.

  1. Environmental, social, governance (ESG) and sustainability
  2. Economic and social development
  3. Sustainable finance
