Guiding principles

Working to empower communities around the world.

As we continue to work to carry out our commitment to the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, we will serve as a role model in helping to influence and empower communities around the world, as they seek to bring meaningful change to their local societies. We seek to work with clients on a broad range of issues related to human rights through multiple service lines.

Supporting Indigenous Australians

One of KPMG Australia’s key priorities is our commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (Indigenous) Australians through our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which outlines our public commitment to embed reconciliation across our business. Our most recent RAP, released in December 2013, is one of only five businesses in Australia to be recognized with ‘Elevate’ status, the highest achievement in acknowledging the breadth and depth of an organization’s engagement with Indigenous Australia.

We are focusing our energy and resources in three areas:

  1. Supporting economic and social development.
  2. Recognizing and promoting the rights of Indigenous Australians, consistent with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
  3. Inspiring leadership for reconciliation.

KPMG Australia is committed to contributing to the social and economic development of Indigenous businesses and communities. Through our honorary work (pro-bono) program, KPMG people have provided almost US$1 million worth of support to Indigenous organizations and businesses in the past year. KPMG Australia also supports sustainable procurement through our Supply Nation membership, procuring goods and services from Indigenous businesses.
