We are fully focused on meeting our corporate responsibility.
As a large and international firm, we have a big responsibility towards society. So we are fully focused on meeting our corporate responsibility, characterised by respect for people, the environment and society.
Our core business – our audit and advisory services – creates added value for society. We also support clients in achieving their ambitions in the area of corporate responsibility.
We invest in knowledge and education, ranging from sponsoring a chair in the field of energy distribution to encouraging broad professional development among our staff members. We conduct research and share the findings. In addition, we support community projects to give as many people as possible an opportunity for a better future.
Our commitment to taking responsibility with regard to the environment and society is also reflected in our operations. For example, we are ISO 14001 certified and we always consider sustainability criteria when purchasing products and services. With our advisory and audit services, KPMG works at the very heart of society. We aim to add value to society in every engagement we perform.
When it comes to the tobacco industry, this means we now feel only obliged to perform statutory audits – when requested – and that we will no longer proactively pursue advisory engagements. We will only consider advisory engagements – when requested – if they explicitly improve the social impact of these organisations. As such, KPMG in the Netherlands chooses to take the lead on this issue within its international network.
