Ethics & Integrity

KPMG helps companies avoid and uncover ethically inappropriate behavior and respond in the proper manner.

KPMG helps companies avoid and uncover ethically inappropriate behavior.

Companies need to behave with integrity if they are to retain the trust of the market and the general public. Even minor misconduct can damage an organization’s reputation. It is therefore in the interest of every organization to ensure that its behavior is ethically irreproachable and compliant with any regulations. This means identifying the relevant risks and developing, implementing and monitoring the necessary measures. The issue assumes particular importance in a heavily regulated environment. KPMG supports its clients in their efforts to avoid and uncover any lapses and respond in the proper manner. To ensure effective management of ethics and compliance issues, KPMG adopts a holistic approach combining structural and formal factors (hard factors) with behavioral factors (soft factors).
