A practical guide to enhancing value from tax sustainability and transparency
The impact of businesses on society and environments continues to gain stakeholder and regulator attention, and the influence of environmental, social and governance (ESG) themes on tax departments can no longer be pushed aside or overlooked.
KPMG research shows that commitment to sustainability and social responsibility is a primary pressure on today’s tax functions. ESG-related activities are moving steadily up the corporate tax mandate and agenda, affecting everything from planning to operations and profitability, and even compliance.
The opportunities for tax to help the broader business capitalize on ESG trends is very real, very attractive, and very imminent. The landscape surrounding these trends is budding and taking shape right now, and it will continue to evolve in the future.
In our experience, most companies don’t appreciate the full tax implications of sustainability-driven operational transformation. Without tax involvement and insight, many will miss opportunities to tap into green credit and incentive programs that can help offset the costs of their investments.
