KPMG to cut carbon by a quarter

Consultancy sets its sights on ambitious environmental targets

One of the big four accountancy firms has pledged to cut its carbon emissions
worldwide by a quarter by 2010.

KPMG wants its global network of member firms to reduce their carbon
footprint through emission saving schemes and renewable energy.

Chairman Timothy P Flynn said: ‘Climate change is now widely regarded as one
of the most serious challenges the world faces. It has reached a tipping point
in
global awareness and demands a global response.’

He said KPMG would measure and reduce its carbon footprint, support
environmental projects and work with staff, suppliers and clients to help them
become green.

‘Many member firms around the world have already set out ambitious
climate change programmes – from reducing our energy consumption through
energy-efficient buildings and finding alternatives to business travel, to

working with our business partners and selected not-for-profit
organisations on verifiable and credible environmental program,’ he added
