KPMG’s Global Development Initiative (GDI) applies our skills to help achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Working alongside governments, civil society groups, international agencies and other private sector organizations, we strive to become involved in finding effective and sustainable solutions to global and local poverty issues.
Our commitment to the MDGs was first endorsed by our Global Board in 2007. In 2011, the Global Board committed to “Enrich the GDI as a global employee engagement program that underpins and embeds the KPMG brand attributes (Expert, Global Mindset, Forward Thinking, Value Adding and Passionate).”
We strongly believe that the greatest contribution of the GDI toward achieving the MDGs is realized through the efforts to help increase the operational efficiency and effectiveness of our NGO and UN partner organizations. By providing professional skills-based services to NGOs, we know we are indirectly helping all of the beneficiaries who receive support from those NGOs and UN partner organizations.
