The KPMG Corporate Social Responsibility Team


Client: N/A

Our multi-award winning KPMG CSR Team is comprised of 18 individuals who use our skills and expertise to boost social mobility through four key pillars: Education and Lifelong Learning, Environment, Strategic Philanthropy and Place. Covid-19 has had a profound impact on our local communities. In response, we have adapted our focus to ensure our approach continues to be market-leading and needs-based, to deliver a green recovery, strengthen our communities, support young people (including with their emotional and mental wellbeing) and convene clients, businesses and third-sector organisations to develop a Place-Based response.
