Climate Change & Sustainability Services 

There is increasingly a 'hard' economic and commercial edge to social and environmental issues faced by all organisations and governments. Sustainability is moving from being primarily about corporate responsibility to a process that can create long-term economic value.

Prepare for the future: Sustainability as a business driver

Prepare for the future: Sustainability as a business driver
An overview of KPMG's global Climate Change and Sustainability Services.

Underpinning this change are the regulatory responses, a price on carbon to stimulate investments in 'green' energy and technologies and address water scarcity, along with the anticipated re-emergence of the social issue of a workforce skills shortage.


These developments are reshaping business opportunities and risks and have the potential to significantly impact on financial performance and long-term business success.


KPMG’s Climate Change & Sustainability Services group works with clients to respond to sustainability, climate change and water issues in order to manage risk, create value and achieve a competitive advantage.
