“Commitment to our communities is one of KPMG’s core values and a cornerstone of the culture of our member firms. Our culture and values, which are aligned with the UN Global Compact’s ten principles, are at the heart of how we conduct business. Now is the time to look forward and take the necessary steps to build the foundation for a sustainable recovery that will spur global growth. The accounting profession touches every aspect of the capital markets system and has a clear role to play in this recovery. We understand that responsible business practices contribute to broad-based development and sustainable markets.”
"We have a clear vision of the role of KPMG firms. We believe we should use our skills and our resources to become fully involved in finding sustainable solutions to local and global issues such as climate change, food and water scarcity, poverty, security, development and economic growth. Locally, member firms around the world are using their skills to support local community initiatives and projects. Globally, we are using our capacity and capability as an international network to support the Millennium Development Goals, working strategically with governments, non-government organisations and the private sector to make an impact."
