Our pact for impact
Turning ideas into impactful solutions
Twenty-twenty vision has taken on new meaning amid the crisis and uncertainty of the new decade. Seismic shifts in the geopolitical landscape and global economy, on the back of a world-altering pandemic, are fuelling an energy crisis, supply chain shocks and a new wave of inflation. Left unchecked, these events could hurtle the planet towards irreversible climate catastrophe and searing divides.
As the world faces one of the most significant periods of unrest in generations, KPMG in Singapore is guided by our shared purpose towards a sustainable future.
Our Impact Plan is an important milestone in this roadmap. It shares our vision for a more equitable and sustainable society, setting out our ESG commitments and tracking our progress towards becoming a better organisation for our people and a better business for our clients.
Find out how we are realising this vision across four pillars: Planet, People, Prosperity and Governance.
Our planet is our home and our future. We’re committed to driving a culture of sustainable practices within our organisation, supply chain and beyond to ensure a healthy planet for generations to come.

Our colleagues helping to fuel a cleaner future
When it comes to energy sources, green is the new black for KPMG in Singapore staff Lim Wen Bin and Andrew Craig.
While COP26 aims to banish coal, Asia’s dependence on it continues to grow as rapidly developing countries seek to meet booming demand for power. Determined to help the region transition from coal plants to cleaner power sources, Wen Bin and Andrew are working with the Asian Development Bank on a carbon reduction programme, called the Energy Transition Mechanism, to help countries cool off the largest source of carbon emissions in the world.
While we might not be able to predict the future, one thing is certain — the journey towards creating a sustainable tomorrow begins today. Read Our Impact Plan to learn how we can shape a lasting world together.
