Sustainability Services 

Increased pressure on and competition for natural resources (such as water, raw materials, and land), energy pricing and security, climate change impacts, and population growth are just a few of the complex issues driving current public and private sector thinking and decision making. Developing a coherent and cohesive strategy to address these interconnected issues and position companies for a more sustainable future has gained increased focus in boardrooms around the world.

By embracing sustainability and integrating it into core business practices, companies are finding they can achieve hard-dollar reductions in energy costs, improved relationships with customers and suppliers, and more efficient use of resources, especially water. They are also discovering that applying a sustainability lens to all aspects of business can help stimulate innovation, leading to new product lines and the opening of new markets.

Featured Success Story
A large, diversified energy company with one of the largest solar and energy efficiency utility programs in the country, needed help in designing more efficient business processes to manage and oversee their solar program to ensure compliance with regulatory objectives. KPMG helped the company design more efficient program processes, improve its control environment, and enhance processes associated with specialized accounting necessary to capture revenues from the sale of Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) and tax benefits. These efforts help ensure the company’s program achieves compliance with the jurisdictional Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) and create growth opportunities for shareholders.
