Sustainability is a fundamental factor in a company’s long-term success.
Demographic trends, scarce resources and the damage being done by climate change pose huge challenges to society, the economy and the world of politics. As far as companies are concerned, global megatrends like these offer opportunities but also harbor risks. Markets and the regulatory landscape are becoming increasingly fast-paced, while various groups of stakeholders are using social media to exert heavy pressure on politicians and businesses. Reputational damage can have huge consequences for the institutions concerned. As the only way to minimize these risks is with a sustainable, long-term business model, many organizations make sustainability their number one priority. Meanwhile, investors are also increasingly basing their decisions on social and environmental criteria alongside financial considerations. However, sustainability is about more than reporting on corporate social responsibility. KPMG provides companies with comprehensive support on issues of sustainability and climate change, geared toward preserving their value for the long term.
