We have a clear vision of the role of KPMG. We believe we should use our skills and our resources to become fully involved in finding sustainable solutions to global and local issues, working alongside government, civil society groups and national and international agencies. This vision is in line with our values — where we make a commitment to the communities in which we work.
Today our sustainability agenda touches every part of our business strategy and we take our responsibility of being a good corporate citizen extremely seriously. Our approach is built on a strong heritage and a dedicated team of practitioners and a sub-group of the UK Board work with the business to continually develop and enhance our approach to corporate sustainability.
We have developed a suite of policies and programmes to facilitate the implementation of our UK-wide ambitions, supported by specific targets and rigorous reporting mechanics to ensure that we are continually making a positive contribution to society and reporting our progress in an open and transparent way. Our leading approach has been recognised externally, including the prestigious Business in the Community Platinum Plus standard, for demonstrating that sustainability is at our core.
