KPMG International and the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) have collaborated to create their first-ever year-in-review report for 2021. CGF works with Consumer & Retail brands to enable them to be ahead of the curve by committing to actions that make their individual businesses and the entire industry more sustainable.
The report details how, despite the challenges of COVID-19, CGF members adapted quickly and leveraged their collective power to maintain their focus on the critical issues affecting both the immediate and longer-term sustainability of the industry and its stakeholders. Action areas include environmental and social sustainability, health and wellness, food safety, data accuracy and end-to-end value chain goals.
Strategic sustainability is at the heart of what KPMG firms do every day with colleagues and clients around the world. Recently, KPMG launched a multi-year program to accelerate global strategies for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. ESG will be the watermark running through KPMG firms; from empowering KPMG professionals to become agents of positive change, to the services that support clients and relationships with organisations like CGF. KPMG is committed to helping the CGF achieve its mission and to helping drive sustainability in the Consumer & Retail sector forward — no matter how complex the challenge — with a goal of enabling a more sustainable future.
