Climate Change & Sustainability 

Business leaders across the world must respond to environmental and social changes: from population growth, urbanisation and expanding wealth to resource scarcity, declining ecosystems and climate change. If a company is to successfully manage the risks and opportunities of these changes, and build a business that is sustainable in the long term, it needs to go on a journey.

KPMG's Climate Change & Sustainability (CC&S) South Africa practice has been established is to assist businesses, investors and policymakers in better understanding the complex and evolving policy, regulatory, and business environment risks and opportunities relating to climate change and sustainability and to help them capitalise on the resultant commercial opportunities.

At the same time, member firms are closely connected through our Global Center of Excellence. This means that, whatever challenge you face, we can put together a knowledgeable team with international experience to help you.

 

We work side-by-side with KPMG professionals from tax, audit and advisory including sector specialists, management consultants, tax accountants and experts in IT, supply chain, infrastructure, international development and more.
