We aim to deliver environmental excellence across our business.

We aim to deliver environmental excellence across our business.

As a socially responsible organization, KPMG aims to minimize any potentially negative impact our business might have on the environment, and we do all we can to allow nature to thrive in urban conditions.

KPMG International is a global signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and committed to:

  • Supporting a precautionary approach to environmental challenges
  • Undertaking initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility
  • Encouraging the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies 

In 2008, KPMG International announced the Global Green Initiative (GGI), a commitment to address climate change by focusing on three pillars:

  1. To measure, reduce and report KPMG’s global emissions across the KPMG network
  2. To support environmental projects within our wider commitment to our communities, and advance sustainability
  3. To work with our partners, employees, suppliers and clients to help them reduce their climate change impacts.

The GGI started with a pan-KPMG network ambition to reduce combined greenhouse gas emissions per full-time equivalent (FTE) employee by 25 percent by 2010, on a 2007 baseline. 

After the target had been achieved, a new one was set in 2011 that seeks a further 15 percent reduction in net emissions per FTE by 2015, compared to 2010. As of 2014, we have reduced our net emissions per FTE by 10 percent since 2010. This brings us closer to our goal of a 15 percent reduction by the end of 2015.
