BRIGHT is KPMG's first cross-border CSR programme and has two components - encouraging our people to use their talents and skills to 'Act Locally' and 'Act Globally' to support the UN Millennium Development Goals.
Locally, people in KPMG member firms are encouraged to apply for BRIGHT by submitting a BRIGHT idea to benefit their local community. The winner of the local challenge gains a two week global placement to use their skills to support KPMG’s BRIGHT community partners; Fairtrade, Restless Development and Child Helpline International, work with colleagues from both multi-national and multi disciplinary teams.

We partner with community organisations on non-skilled projects where our employees give their time to make a positive difference in our local community. Our employees gain first-hand experience of the importance of contributing to our local communities and are encouraged to continue relationships with the charitable and service organisations we support. With hundreds of staff hours in a single day, together we make a significant impact, in a short period of time.
