Currents of change: The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2015
Many of the world’s largest companies are under ever increasing pressure to cut their carbon emissions, as the global economy shifts slowly but steadily towards a low-carbon, and eventually zero-carbon, model.
In addition, companies face ever-greater expectations and requirements from stakeholders to provide clear, consistent and transparent information on their carbon emissions and the actions they are taking to reduce them.
KPMG member firms believe that all stakeholders should be able to access good quality, comparable information on carbon performance quickly and easily from the company’s annual financial and/or corporate responsibility reports.
This enables stakeholders to understand key information on carbon and climate in the same context as other material issues disclosed by the company.
KPMG has therefore analyzed carbon information published by the world’s 250 largest companies (G250) in their corporate responsibility reports and their annual financial reports.
