KPMG IMPACT brings together an experienced network of professionals from across the globe to deliver industry-leading practices, research and trusted client solutions to address the biggest issues facing our planet. Our goal is to have a real and positive impact today and for our collective future.
Unleashing the positive in net zero
The deadline is 2050. The time to act is now.
Among the many images of lockdown, perhaps some of the most profound and lasting are streets empty of traffic, skies free of airplanes and the return of wildflowers and wildlife to our built environment.
By early April 2020, when billions of people were confined to their homes, global carbon emissions decreased to 2006 levels — almost a fifth of 2019’s average. Across the world, countries reported fresher air and cleaner rivers.
As we cautiously emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic back to our normal lives, this picture of peace and serenity threatens to disappear. If governments, industry and individuals don’t take collective action to reduce global emissions level to net zero by 2050, life as we know it may become unliveable. Extreme weather, ecosystem degradation and loss of livelihoods and lives are key climate change consequences confronting Singapore.
KPMG in Singapore supports the business community and beyond in rapidly reducing their carbon impacts through thought leadership, expertise, next-generation solutions and corporate responsibility reports. By empowering organisations with tools and approaches that can address their unique challenges and help drive positive impact, we can create a sustainable net zero future — together, for better.

KPMG Survey of Sustainability Reporting 2020: The time has come
This report offers a detailed look at global trends in sustainability reporting from 5,200 companies in 52 different countries, with insights for business leaders, company boards and sustainability professionals. Its aim is to support those who have a responsibility for assessing and preparing their own organisation’s sustainability reporting.
The survey also serves as a guide to investors, asset managers and ratings agencies who now factor sustainability or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) information into their assessment of corporate performance and risk.
Towards Net Zero 2020 report
The world is in a race against time. We have only 30 years to cut global carbon emissions to net zero if we are to limit global warming and mitigate potentially catastrophic impacts of climate change. Business is not only a critical player in achieving this, it is also at risk from the physical effects of the climate crisis and the economic impacts of transitioning to a net zero economy.
Our Towards Net Zero report is the latest in KPMG’s series of sustainability reporting surveys and is intended primarily to help corporate reporting, investor relations and sustainability professionals shape their own company’s reporting. It may also help investors, lenders, insurers, asset managers and ratings agencies to understand current reporting maturity and the gaps where improvement is needed.
The TNZ surveys 250 of the world’s largest companies in terms of their climate disclosures against KPMG’s 12 Quality Criteria and the results enable any company to assess its own reporting against the performance of this global leadership group.
