Infrastructure Journal, one of the world’s leading infrastructure news and resource centres, has recognised KPMG as the ‘Global Financial Adviser of the Year’ for 2015. The Firm has demonstrated excellence across the globe and outperformed its peers from other regions with their work on energy and infrastructure projects which is an area of strength in South Africa.
“This award reflects our excellence and achievements in infrastructure advisory globally. It truly acknowledges the global nature of our business and celebrates the holistic value we bring to our clients through our diverse industry expertise and deep sector knowledge,” says De Buys Scott, KPMG’s Director: Deal Advisory Infrastructure.
Additionally, KPMG International recently won two prestigious 2015 International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) Awards, presented in London earlier this month. For the fourth consecutive year, KPMG was awarded “Sustainable Firm of the Year,” and for a third consecutive year, “Social Media Networking Champion of the Year Global.”
In awarding “Sustainable Firm of the Year,” IAB said, “KPMG has impressed the judges with its commitment to push for sustainability internally and not just as an offering to clients,” noting that KPMG firms globally reported a 10 percent reduction in net emissions since 2010. IAB added that “the KPMG network continues to help clients improve their own environmental and social performance, not only through KPMG sustainability services, but across all other lines.”
“These awards are a true reflection of our People’s hard work and commitment to our clients,” says Trevor Hoole, KPMG CEO. “We are exceedingly proud of these milestones and we will continue to be passionate about responsible, effective engagement with our communities, clients and our people”
