Our Contribution

We are active for a good purpose and are encouraging the following generations. Find out more about our coroporate social responsibilities.

We take on environmental responsibility and ensure that we keep our consumption of water and paper as low as possible. We obtain our power from sustainable sources like water or wind power where possible. Currently about 90% of our electricity comes from renewable sources.

We are keen on getting active for social purposes. Each year we therefore set aside a certain budget for pro bono work and together with the KPMG Foundation we support projects in the areas of education and integration of people who are disabled or social disadvantaged.

We encourage our employees in their quest to keep physically fit while at the same time doing something for the good of others. As part of our “Stay healthy – move for charity” campaign, KPMG donates a sum for a good purpose for every sporting activity undertaken.

We actively pass on our expertise to younger generations through, for example, the Chair of Auditing and Internal Control at the University of Zurich and the Chair of Audit and Accounting at the University of St. Gallen. For schoolchildren, we open our offices on the national day of the future (Nationaler Zukunftstag) to give them a not too serious impression of a day at work.

The Consultepreneur

Consultepreneurs are a new breed of professionals. They’re part consultants. Part entrepreneur. All business.
