Our technological innovation, cross-functional investments, and guidance for clients, brought to bear by our business model, help us drive positive change for our communities and planet.


A more sustainable future matters

Our path toward a sustainable future is empowered by new tools, alliances, knowledge, and action. Trust is built on actions, not words, and concrete steps underlie each of our commitments to the planet.

Our commitments:

  • Achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030 while also achieving a 50% reduction of direct and indirect GHG emissions
  • Continue to source 100 percent renewable energy for all operations
  • Factor the cost of carbon into business decisions, including tools to track and reduce emissions for each client engagement 

Sustainability by the numbers


per metric ton of CO2e, our internal carbon price designed to fund investments that decarbonize our operations


of energy procured from renewable sources for the past four years


reduction in emissions from electricity usage since 2019


Internal carbon price

We piloted our internal carbon price (ICP) in 2020 and, at the beginning of FY 2022, we became the first of the Big Four accounting firms to formalize our ICP, using the price to operationalize sustainable behavior, fund our green investments, and account for our carbon impact. We apply our price on carbon to Scope 1 and 2 emissions, as well as Scope 3 emissions associated with business travel.

Optimized real estate footprint

Flex with Purpose, our hybrid strategy, has guided a fundamental shift in our decarbonization strategy for the past two years. Ultimately, this has promoted a reduction in travel by allowing people to work from different locations if feasible. In turn, we’ve seen a 24% reduction in emissions from electricity usage since 2019.

Sustainable supply chain

Hundreds of millions of dollars cycle from KPMG through our supply chain, across multiple industries. As a result, our procurement teams are integral to our journey toward a sustainable future.
