Environmental stewardship

We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment, addressing local environmental challenges and working with clients to advance environmental sustainability. For example, investing in responsible energy use; educating and providing support to employees in making sustainable decisions; working on environmental protection projects; and joining forces with business leadership groups to address environmental impacts.


In 2008, KPMG International launched the Global Green Initiative, a three-pronged approach to tackle the climate change challenge across our global network by:

Managing our impacts

We understand that managing our environmental impacts does not end with carbon emissions measurement.

Supporting environmental projects

Through the Global Green Initiative we apply our business skills and support innovative projects to address the challenges of climate change.

Supporting employees, suppliers and clients

KPMG works with the people in our global network of member firms to reduce their individual impacts and collaborate with suppliers and clients.
