When sustainability is central to your mission and vision, you need to be sure it is properly embedded at every level of the organisation. Smart is one of the fastest growing FinTechs in the world. As a retirement savings technology provider with a focus on delivering financial and environmental wellbeing to savers globally, ensuring the organisation was taking a strategic and systemic approach to sustainability was critical.
The Founders of Smart chose KPMG in the UK to help them understand their material ESG risks and opportunities, to benchmark their gaps and progress, and to identify areas where they could go further for their people, the planet and broader society. Ultimately, the executive team wanted to create a strategy that would help them meet their goals and future-proof their organisation in a rapidly changing world.
One of the reasons we founded Smart was to make a positive difference to savers all across the world - not just for the returns in their retirement accounts but also for the long-term benefit of the planet. We’re delighted to have worked with KPMG to explore what this looks like.
