We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

Our member firm is committed to reducing our impact on the environment, addressing local environmental challenges and working with clients to advance environmental sustainability. 

Our actions include:

  • Achieving ambitious emissions reduction targets
  • Developing new approaches to account for natural and social capital
  • Supporting collaborative projects with partners
  • Serving as leading providers of climate change and sustainability services for our clients.

 

In 2008, KPMG International announced the Global Green Initiative (GGI), a commitment to address climatechange by focusing on three pillars:

  1. To measure, reduce and report KPMG’s global emissions across the KPMG network; 
  2. To support environmental projects within our wider commitment to our communities, and advance sustainability; 
  3. To work with our partners, employees, suppliers and clients to help them reduce their climate change impacts.

Our member firm accepted this challenge and continues to develop new ways to address the climate change based on the three pillars.

  2. to support environmental projects within our wider commitment to our communities; and Advancing sustainability
  3. to work with our partners, employees, suppliers and clients to help them reduce their climate change impacts.

The GGI started with an ambition to reduce our combined greenhouse gas emissions per full-time equivalent (FTE) employee by 25 percent by 2010, on a 2007 baseline. We achieved this target. A new target was set in 2011 that seeks a further 15 percent reduction in net emissions per FTE by 2015, compared to 2010. As of 2013, we have achieved a 10 percent net emissions reduction. Furthermore, 27 percent of our total purchased electricity is now procured from renewable sources.

 


Environmental sustainability statistics cited above are based on aggregated results of a group of KPMG firms representing 85 percent of full-time equivalent KPMG people globally, which are used to estimate total emissions from all KPMG firms.

Environmentally friendly initiatives

Annually, KPMG supports the Earth Day Cleanup in the Cayman Islands. This initiative is an island wide program that allows employees, friends and family to collect litter that is hazardous to our environment. The firm also invest in the CCMI’s Ocean Literacy program, which is an environmental initiative educating Cayman’s youth on the importance of the Ocean and the life within it. 

Our member firm continues to decrease the use of printed material and publications by providing web accessible versions; purchasing less newspapers; and finding new ways to use outdated stationary. We continue to distribute environmentally friendly tote bags and 89% recycled bottle material pens to staff. Each floor within our building has recycling bins for staff to recycle aluminum, plastic and glass items. 

KPMG in the Cayman Islands and KPMG (BVI) Limited use business cards that are printed on 100 percent recycled paper and annually, both firms send out Christmas e-cards to clients, which decreases the use of paper cards.
