Corporate Citizenship 

Rupendra Singh

Our commitment to Corporate Citizenship is an important part of who we are. In the past year we significantly expanded the scope of our activities, and consequently the involvement of our people. We focused on operating in a sustainable manner in the best interests of the communities in which we live and work.

 

Volunteering continues to play a significant role in our programmes, and the enthusiasm and participation of our people has been our greatest source of inspiration. We encourage our people to take leadership in and for our communities, and use their skills in creative and focused ways to help deliver support solutions. Our people have also spent many hours helping school and university students build the skills required for progress.

 

We started KPMG’s Family for Literacy programme at schools in Delhi and Mumbai this year, and this has been a great platform to involve the families of our people.

 

Our support towards disaster relief work through financial contributions and involvement of our people illustrates the potential we have to make a difference in our communities.

 

Reducing our carbon footprint has been at the forefront of our agenda as we implemented energy saving solutions across offices. We also continued to support environment projects at educational institutions.

 

We hope you find our website informative and inspiring.

There is an old African proverb - “If you want to get somewhere fast, go alone... If you want to get far, go together.” – this has been proven time and again from the efforts the KPMG Foundation in India has put in towards engaging our people, our leadership and our communities.

The Foundation has thrived on the concept of strategic collaboration, whether it is to provide solutions to a local issue, or supporting our International strategy in overcoming Global issues.

This is the same advice I gave the Enactus teams at the Enactus Regional competition in Delhi as well. The students had the energy and spirit to overcome societal issues, but need to work towards building strategic alliances to ensure that these issues are weeded out of society in the long run. It was inspiring to be surrounded by a group of young future leaders at the Enactus event; a force that has let go of cynicism and believes that change can happen; and more importantly are ready to be the change makers!
