KPMG is now a proud member of the Climate Leaders Coalition (CLC), joining other prominent New Zealand businesses committed to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions to net zero.

Formed in July 2018, CLC brings together more than 70 Kiwi business leaders to tackle the challenge of climate change and, in doing so, create a positive future for the economy and all New Zealanders.

“Joining the CLC is simply the right thing to do,” says KPMG CEO Godfrey Boyce. “All businesses should take responsibility for their emissions. At KPMG, it is an essential part of our commitment to walking the talk, fuelling New Zealand’s long-term prosperity, and enabling our clients to do the same.”

KPMG has committed to measuring and making further reductions across the full scope of its emissions, as well as working with suppliers to reduce their emissions, by 2020. Meanwhile, the firm has committed to becoming fully carbon neutral – through the offsetting of unavoidable emissions – by 2030 at the latest.

“By working with like-minded organisations, our business community can build – and more quickly benefit from – the no net emissions economy of New Zealand’s future,” says KPMG Director of Sustainable Value, Charles Ehrhart. “We’re publically committing to ambitious targets, and it’s pleasing to witness colleagues’ widespread desire to hold ourselves accountable and achieve the firm’s climate change goals even sooner than planned – an opportunity I am sure we will grasp firmly.”
