Climate change is a key driver when it comes to reshaping the business landscape, affecting financial performance and defining long-term business value. KPMG advises companies to turn risks into opportunities and develop sustainable business models that embed environmental, social and economic principles at strategic, managerial and operational levels while meeting stakeholder’s expectations. Both companies as well as governments across the world use our experience to better understand and address climate change impacts.
