Insights on the most important trends in sustainability.

KPMG’s thought leadership provides insights on the most important trends in sustainability and business responses to environmental and social change.

For instance, KPMG's Sustainable Insight series introduces topics that are shaping the sustainability debate and that we believe have a direct impact on business and therefore require attention. In addition to explaining the issues and sharing industry practice, we suggest concrete steps for a better understanding and management of these concerns.
