Organisations are striving to move beyond an operating model that purely focuses on maximising shareholder value, to focus on making a positive contribution to society.

As climate change, water scarcity, social inequity and environmental degradation become more apparent, the financial implications of these non-financial issues are receiving increasing attention from stakeholders.

Companies must respond to these expectations while creating shared value in the short, medium and long term.

How KPMG can help

We help organisations understand and identify the material issues that have the most impact on your business.

Understanding and identifying these material issues can serve as a foundation to create a business-driven sustainability strategy. 

We also provide insights on changing market and stakeholder expectations, help take account of emerging performance and reporting protocols, and consider risks and opportunities that flow from business strategies.

We can assist in the development of performance monitoring and evaluation frameworks, design and implement robust governance models and processes for collecting and reporting information, or provide assurance over market disclosures.
