Environmental protection at KPMG Law

Our ISO 14001 certification

Our environmental management system has been certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001 since November 2021. We are constantly striving to raise our employees’ awareness of climate-friendly behavior and to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions to a minimum.

As part of our environmental management, we aim to implement economically efficient, socially acceptable and ecologically effective measures that make a sustainable contribution to improving our environmental impact. In particular, this includes reducing climate-damaging CO2 emissions and purchasing sustainable products and services in our supply chain.

Our claim

We are committed to using natural resources responsibly. With our ISO 14001-certified environmental management system, we are able to continuously scrutinize and improve KPMG Law’s business processes with regard to their environmental impact.

The management system applies to all KPMG Law locations. The management system covers all environmental impacts that are caused by the provision of services in the Legal Public Sector, Legal Financial Services, Legal Corporate Services and Legal Deal Advisory solution lines and which KPMG Law can directly influence or control.

We want to promote the environmental awareness of our employees and thus bring about a change in their thinking and behavior with regard to ecological sustainability. With our environmental measures, we show our employees ways to use energy and resources more consciously: Because each and every one of us can make an individual contribution to continuously improving our environmental performance. In our environmental policy, we define principles for environmentally friendly action.

Our goals for the environment

KPMG International sets specific environmental protection targets for the global KPMG organization. A groundbreaking decision was made in fall 2020: KPMG is to become climate-neutral worldwide by 2030. This commitment is a milestone on our path to a sustainable future.

To achieve this goal, KPMG International has joined the Science Based Targets initiative, which is committed to making science-based targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions a standard part of corporate practice. According to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, global warming is to be limited to significantly less than 2 degrees or 1.5 degrees. We can achieve this 1.5 degree target if we reduce our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030.

The current status with regard to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is shown in the table of key figures for the Impact Report.
