Our impact

People quite rightly want to know more about the organisations they are working with, buying from, and investing in. That's why, for the first time, we're reporting collectively on our impact across five areas: our firm, our people, our clients, our communities and of course, our planet.

This is just the start, and we know we have further to go, but by taking this important step we're giving people a common way of measuring our ESG progress and holding ourselves accountable to drive change."

Jon Holt Chief Executive, KPMG in the UK

The climate crisis is becoming more extreme, the impact of COVID-19 has brought social injustice even more into the spotlight and the landscape for corporate reform is rapidly evolving. We have a responsibility to help shape disclosures and to convene and support business to accelerate progress on their ESG journey. This is a real opportunity for UK business to lead the way and position the UK as a great place to do business and invest.
