We are determined to act as responsible corporate citizens, so we bring together our skills and our resources in order to help society tackle the problems that are faced today.
That means, increasingly, going beyond good governance, compliance, ethical conduct, and philanthropy, it means being committed to other groups in society, in order to combat global, environmental, and social problems.
We are also becoming more strategic in our Corporate Citizenship work. And as such, we will make KPMG a company known for:
- Establishing a reference for citizenship.
- Inspiring its professionals to think innovatively and to be committed to the significant issues of the local community, as leaders, volunteers, and supporters.
- Encouraging its employees to participate in the solutions to major issues faced by the world.
- Acting collaboratively with community groups.
There are some issues that unite KPMG with the world, and the International Executive Committee agreed that these issues should provide the pillars of corporate citizenship for each of our member firms around the world. These are:
Seek to develop in schools and colleges the capacity to advance the progress of skills and potential of young people, and help build business and community cohesion.
Investing in the responsible use of natural resources, work with leadership groups to address issues like climate change and water and food scarcity, and help our own people to behave sustainably.
Investing in social justice and sustainable building projects to tackle poverty in line with the Millennium Development Goals.
