KPMG Leaders Appointed to the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Councils 

KPMG will be well-represented on the global stage as a thought leader on climate change and sustainability. 

Recently, Yvo de Boer, KPMG's Special Global Advisor for Climate Change and Sustainability (CC&S), accepted a World Economic Forum (WEF) invitation to chair the organization's Global Agenda Council on Climate Change. In addition, Lord Michael Hastings, KPMG Global Head of Citizenship and Diversity, was invited to become a member of the WEF's Global Agenda Council on the Role of Business 2011, his third appointment to a WEF Global Agenda Council.


The Council on Climate Change is part of a network of nearly 80 Global Agenda Councils created by the WEF since 2008 to provide specialized attention to a variety of pressing business, social, cultural, and regional issues.


Both appointments deepen KPMG's engagement with the WEF and contribute to our firm's global prestige.
