KPMG supports ESG reporting with the following services:

1. Compiling the content of a sustainability or ESG report

We carry out a materiality assessment prior to the sustainability or ESG report. The results are used to identify the material ESG issues underlying the report. We involve key stakeholders and company managers in the materiality assessment. In compiling this report, we rely on industry best practices and the extensive experience of our experts.

2. Preparing sustainability or ESG reports

KPMG helps prepare sustainability reports in accordance with globally accepted voluntary reporting standards (GRI, SASB, TCFD, CDP), as well as with preparing for and compiling reports in accordance with CSRD, NFRD, EU Taxonomy and ISSB standards and reporting. Before preparing a sustainability report, we help our clients choose the guidelines or standards that best fit their operations.

3. Preparing integrated reports

KPMG helps companies integrate ESG and non-financial indicators and results into their financial reporting in line with the requirements of the NFRD (later CSRD) and the EU Taxonomy Regulation, supplemented by other sustainability reporting standard guidelines as required.
