KPMG International has won the prestigious 2014 International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) Award for Sustainable Firm of the Year for a third consecutive year.
Citing KPMG’s “strong commitment to running a sustainable business,” IAB highlighted KPMG’s collaboration with Enactus, which spans more than 30 countries, enabling students to make a difference in their communities while developing skills to become responsible business leaders.
In addition to this, the award recognizes the KPMG global network’s success in meeting emissions reduction targets, especially its ambition to further reduce net emissions by 15 percent per full-time equivalent by 2015, compared to 2010 levels. IAB also praised the significant investment to support communities across KPMG member firms through pro bono activities, volunteering and financial contributions.
“Being named Sustainable Firm of the Year for a third consecutive year inspires great pride in all KPMG firms,” said Vincent Neate, Partner and Head of Sustainability Services at KPMG. “It reinforces the belief that as global corporate citizens, KPMG firms/professionals have a responsibility to the communities, marketplace and people to contribute to a sustainable world.”
In addition to the award for sustainability, IAB presented KPMG International with the “Audit Innovation of the Year” award and “Social Media Networking Champion of the Year” award (global level) for the second year running.
