‘There is both a strong business and moral case for good corporate citizenship,’ said KPMG UK senior partner and international chairman, Mike Rake. ‘KPMG is proud of the significant contribution of the firm and its employees.’
The firm was also ranked top in the Business in the Environment (BiE) index, chaired by Sir Derek Higgs. It assesses the extent to which environmental responsibility is integrated within a company’s business functions.
‘More than a benchmark, the BiE Index provides companies with a unique platform to communicate good environmental practice. Each of the 176 companies that participated in the Index should be recognised for their commitment to transparency in managing, measuring and reporting their environmental impacts,’ Sir Derek said.
But despite being ranked highest among all accountancy firms, KPMG came only 37th in a league of 176 companies.
