Podcast overview

KPMG IMPACT has developed this podcast series to explore the critical role that tax plays in a company’s ESG strategy. Topics in this series will provide a thorough understanding of how tax strategy, leadership, governance, and transparency fit into a company’s ESG initiatives and decisions. With insights from our subject matter leaders, we'll explore how companies are managing tax risk, preparing for tax transparency, addressing sustainable finance considerations, and implementing tax ESG due diligence for transactions.
We hope you find these sessions helpful as you establish the path of your tax and ESG journey.

In this episode, Tax leaders from KPMG discuss how tax strategy contributes to corporations’ overall ESG initiatives. More specifically we explore what a tax strategy might actually look like; the importance of ensuring that the strategy is consistent with corporate ESG principles; and the various factors that might go into developing and publishing that tax strategy.

Joining host Brett Weaver, head of the KPMG U.S. Tax ESG practice and Tax lead for KPMG IMPACT solutions, are Matt McNeil, Principal - KPMG Tax Impact, and Anu Varadharajan, Director - KPMG Tax Impact.
