Climate Change and Sustainability Services 

Today, climate change and sustainability, as well as responsible investing, are issues that are rising to the top of corporate and investors’ agendas. Even those who are following the global climate change debate from afar understand that their key stakeholders are already focused on these issues and the need to capitalize on them. 


As a result, there is a new clarion call for executives and investors: leverage sustainability as a strategic lens to enhance processes, grow revenue, manage risk, strengthen reporting, optimize costs, and spur innovation.

 "We are seeing Luxembourg companies waking up to the opportunities in areas like product development and therefore revenue growth. As an example, certain private banks are suddenly realizing that offering an investment product range covering responsible investment is now a decision factor for new clients” .

Jane Wilkinson, Head of CC&S, KPMG Luxembourg.
