We passionately believe that the work we do for clients should also be good for our people, our communities and the world at large.
We have a fundamental commitment to serve the public interest and build trust. Everything we do has to be underpinned by objectivity, independence, ethics and integrity, from our commitment to lead the profession in audit quality and drive responsible tax practices, to launching KPMG IMPACT and delivering the highest quality work to advisory clients. Through our audit and tax services, KPMG firms aim to help business to run in a fair and transparent way, and through KPMG IMPACT and our advisory services, we aim to help clients become more effective and resilient in the face of rising volatility and complexity. This in turn fosters wider economic growth and prosperity.
In FY20, KPMG posted aggregated global revenues of US$29.22 billion and employed almost 227,000 people across 146 countries and territories. But we believe we have a wider responsibility to support sustainable growth and stakeholder capitalism than is indicated by these measures alone. By focusing on being a purposeful business, we are accelerating our own work, and our work to support clients deliver against a broader environmental, social and governance agenda.
One area of focus for KPMG firms is in amplifying our efforts on education and lifelong learning and continuing to work in our communities. With the help of our people around the world, we believe we have the opportunity and responsibility to support others on their education journey.
