Corporate Environment

We act with professionalism and integrity.

We act with professionalism and integrity.

Accountability and good governance apply to and are upheld by our people. We have a dedicated partner for Ethics and Independence, and conduct regular ethics training for all employees. Our Code of Conduct guides the way we operate and maintain auditor independence. Our dealings with the business community are always underpinned by integrity.

The KPMG Global Code of Conduct provides a basic understanding of the standard of ethics that KPMG follows around the world, outlining the 'KPMG Way'.

The quality and integrity of our people and our work is paramount in everything we do at KPMG. Audit committees, management, regulators, governments, clients and investors deserve clear articulation of the steps that KPMG member firms take in order to uphold our professional obligations and responsibilities. These steps were first articulated in KPMG International's Transparency Report in 2005, which was the first produced by any of the global accounting networks. Subsequently, international and national transparency reports have been published by KPMG entities around the world.

 

KPMG uses its expertise as a corporate volunteer with Shared Services for Charities

We lend our professional expertise to charities as a corporate volunteer with the established Shared Services for Charities (SSC), a not-for-profit, charitable organization. Set up to improve governance for charities, the SSC provides professional services for internal controls review, policies and procedures documentation, internal audit outsourcing and whistle-blowing.

Charities under the SSC program share in the cost of services, such as internal audit, financial and risk management, and fundraising, making them more accessible and affordable. As a corporate volunteer since 2012, KPMG commits to provide staff resources to participate in SSC's internal audit program for charities.
