As an auditing company, we bear a great social responsibility - we are aware of this. We put our passion into high-quality audit services for the security of our clients.

Our offer

Through our integrated audit of financial and sustainability information, we leverage synergies and provide our clients with holistic support for all regulatory changes that companies face now and in the future.

The audit of sustainability reporting is fully integrated into our audit of financial statements. The common business understanding of our integrated audit team and the integrated audit methodology improve risk assessment in the context of audit planning and lead to an efficient audit of both financial and sustainability information. The simultaneous use of the results of specific audit procedures is efficient and avoids duplication of work. With our data-based, standardised audit approach, we map the integrated audit according to the maturity of the available data basis.

Our promise

Quality and technology leadership: As an auditing firm with over 130 years of experience, we accompany our clients with foresight, certainty and precision. Our focus is on quality using future-proof technology with our cloud-based audit platform KPMG Clara. Our quality assurance forms the basis and is a matter of course.

This is what sets us apart


Icon Team

You can trust in this: At KPMG, one team takes responsibility for auditing both financial and sustainability information. For reasons of quality and efficiency, as well as for easy and pleasant cooperation, we provide the support within the scope of the audit from a single source.

The integrated audit requires a perfectly integrated team in which each team member has the same understanding of the company to be audited. Synergistic use of knowledge from the audit by one team promotes audit efficiency, avoids duplication of work or interviews and prevents inconsistencies within the audit of integrated reporting. The integrated core team is the main point of contact for the client on site.

It is highly qualified, led by auditors with many years of professional experience, and its size and composition are tailored to the client's requirements. For the large international group as well as for small companies, capital market-oriented or family-run, with the corresponding expertise in the relevant industry.

Specialists are called in as needed for special audit-related topics, such as complex tax issues, litigation, financial instruments, pension plans, forensic issues or aspects of company valuation.

Due to our client structure and our numerous audits of companies listed on the DAX, which as listed companies were and are the first to be affected by developments in sustainability reporting, we conducted numerous audits of non-financial information very early on - both with limited and already with reasonable assurance.

We set the course early on and brought experienced talent with a science background on board. This and our audit-related consulting with ESG Solutions gives us the flexibility to also bring in specialist know-how for selected technical specifics in sustainability reporting, for example in the area of technical environmental issues, biodiversity or water.

You can be sure: We rely on an integrated methodology for the audit of financial and sustainability information. Even if the subject matter of the audit changes or expands, the audit approach is fundamentally identical. Gaining an understanding of the company's business activities, analysing risks and understanding your processes are core components of the risk-oriented audit approach, which is also to be applied to the audit of sustainability information depending on the required audit assurance.

Icon Team

We actively contribute to the development of standards and are represented in committees (e.g. EFRAG). Through this involvement, we directly contribute our experience in the field of auditing and are aware of current developments.

Within the framework of the integrated audit approach, our policy department ensures quality-assured methodology, uniform processes and reliable decisions. Especially in an area such as sustainability reporting, where regulatory uncertainties still exist, a structured and uniform formation of opinion is essential for the comparability of audited information and its quality.

Icon Team

As a globally organised network, we stand by companies as auditors. No matter how your company continues to internationalise, a national member firm in the global KPMG network is always close by and can support you with audit services.

Within the scope of group audits, instructions are given to foreign auditors - also for the audit of sustainability information. Through secondments and global initiatives in the area of ESG, which are notified at an early stage, we ensure comprehensive and uniform expertise worldwide - also in countries outside Europe.
