KPMG in India has a strong legacy of improving communities and making change happen. Our Corporate Citizenship programme is aligned to our values, knowledge and experience. We work towards sustainable development in communities and bring about a change by working with schools, colleges and organisations that align with our focus on Lifelong Learning.
We provide immediate relief and long-term rehabilitation to those affected by natural disasters, and continue to work on being environmentally responsible by reducing our carbon footprint and investing in solar and water conservation projects. As part of our green initiatives, we have banned single use plastic in our offices, and have introduced processes for waste segregation.
As always, our people continue to be the driving force behind our programmes. In 2017, staff of all KPMG entities operating in India, along with their families, volunteered over 65,000 hours. Our various volunteering opportunities include mentoring and training students, reading and storytelling sessions under KPMG’s Family for Literacy (KFFL) programme, cataloguing books in libraries, organising carnivals, tree plantation drives and accompanying children on field trips and excursions.
