KPMG sponsors Carbon Disclosure Project in South Africa 

As a lead sponsor, KPMG in South Africa was pleased to host the launch of the South African Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) report on Thursday 28 November 2013 in the Wanooka Auditorium in conjunction with the National Business Initiative (NBI).

The CDP is a global investor-led initiative on behalf of 722 institutional investors holding US$87 trillion in assets aimed at the voluntary disclosure by companies of business risks and opportunities from climate change. In South Africa, the CDP is implemented through the NBI, which is a voluntary organisation of over 100 blue-chip national and multi-national companies in South Africa working for “sustainable growth and development in South Africa through partnerships, practical programmes and policy engagement.

 

KPMG’s involvement with the CDP in an integral part of our Global Green Initiative through which we are investing in responsible energy use, educating and supporting our people in making sustainable decisions, working on environmental protection projects and joining forces with leadership groups and other businesses to address impacts. Our sponsorship of the South African report, and the access to clients and support for the brand that this involvement brings, remains a core part of our business strategy.

 

Moses Kgosana, Chief Executive, KPMG in South Africa, opened the event to reiterate the firm’s commitment to Living Green and to profile KPMG’s work in Climate Change & Sustainability. Nhlanhla Nene, Deputy Minister of Finance also spoke at the event.
