Committed to a better tomorrow
The impact of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are clearer than ever. That's why KPMG in the Crown Dependencies is committed to strengthening our ESG offering. We recognise our responsibility to help build a better future for all.
ESG is the watermark running through our organisation; from empowering our people to become agents of positive change, to providing better solutions and services to our clients.
Making a positive difference
Something truly extraordinary is happening in the world today: Governments, businesses and individuals are embracing a sense of responsibility that goes far beyond their own interest — sharply focused by the recognition that climate change is an existential threat to humanity.
This reality challenges businesses to report on their impact, reassess their purpose in society and become a force for good — for employees, customers, suppliers and the communities in which they operate.
Tackling ESG challenges head on
ESG must be embedded in your strategy and form the overall narrative and purpose of your business.
ESG is more than just a score
The ESG rating of your business is critical for investors and will determine who will and can do business with you in the future. Yet, the score is only an outcome of what a physical business actually does. Data and transparency are critical to capture your commitment to ESG and to articulate the resilience and sustainability of your business to your stakeholders.
COVID-19 has accelerated the ESG agenda
COVID-19 has demonstrated our agility in the face of extreme change and driven focus on the integrity economy. As businesses are forced to transform, it is an opportunity to embed ESG into your business purpose and strategy.
ESG in Asset Management
Institutional investors are increasingly recognising the potential for ESG factors – such as climate risk and poor human rights performance – to affect the valuation and financial performance of the companies they invest in.
At the same time, consumer demand for responsible investments is surging, especially from the Millennial generation. Regulation is emerging, for example in the EU, and the influence of initiatives including the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) continues to escalate.
KPMG in the Crown Dependencies has a range of ESG and asset management professionals who can help your organisation enhance its approach to ESG, whatever your current level of maturity.
