KPMG member firms are working to address the environmental impacts of their supply chain through multiple initiatives, including updating their procurement policies to address environmental considerations when purchasing goods and services. Several firms have also worked with conference venues to help ensure that environmental sustainability is considered when planning events and meetings.
Transparent reporting on the Carbon Disclosure Project seeks to voluntarily inform clients and other external stakeholders on the emissions profile and strategies to manage the environmental impacts of KPMG International and KPMG member firms. KPMG firms also work with like-minded clients to measure any environmental impacts in their supply chains through the multitude of services they provide for them. In 2013, KPMG International was recognized by the CDP as the “Best Supplier Response in Switzerland”, KPMG International’s reporting country.
