KPMG’s thought leadership provides insights on the most important trends in sustainability and business responses to environmental and social change.

Insights on the most important trends in sustainability.

KPMG publishes regular research, insights, and opinions on the hot topics in sustainable business. We set out to inform, challenge and provoke; to drive new thinking and change the status quo.

Our research reports lead the market

Independent analysts Source Global Research have rated our sustainability research reports as among the best work in the global consulting industry. We are proud of this achievement and we strive to keep raising the bar.

Our KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting, for example, is widely acknowledged as one of the most authoritative global views of corporate reporting on sustainability. Published every two years since 1993, the survey examines both financial and non-financial reports from thousands of companies worldwide to understand what companies are reporting, why and how – and where reporting is going next.

Other issues we’ve explored in our recent research include:

  • How to report on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • How to address human rights risks to business
  • How to issue a green bond

Our experts share their insights and opinions

Our subject matter experts regularly share their thoughts and views on critical issues from the growth of green finance to the accelerating global energy transition to declining trust in business. Read the latest blogs from our professionals.
