Corporate Citizenship

Corporate Citizenship aims to create impacts for our communities in Indigenous Australia, mental health, skills for the future and climate change.

Corporate Citizenship aims to create positive and lasting impacts for our communities.

We believe that our nation will not realise its full potential until everyone has equal access to opportunity, with business playing a vital role in solving social and environmental issues.

As a leader in Corporate Citizenship, KPMG harnesses the energy and capabilities of our people to empower positive change for our community.
In 2016, we launched our Social Impact Framework to ensure we continue to focus on Australia’s most pressing problems and to concentrate our efforts on initiatives where we can have the greatest impact.

Our refreshed strategy revolves around four pillars, each of which are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
