KPMG in Singapore commenced work on ESG-related engagements as early as 2002, making it one of the first Big 4 firms to advise companies on their ESG journey in Singapore. The KPMG ESG team has the mission of driving large‐scale economic transformation in Singapore and the region associated with the green transition. Built on strong connectivity within local and regional markets, as well as with KPMG's Global and Regional ESG Centres of Excellence, the KPMG ESG team houses highly technical ESG competencies and brings together best practices, all of which are directed to the co‐creation of shared value with our business partners and clients.

We work on ESG reporting, strategy, and other ESG-related advisory projects such as sustainability reporting, climate and biodiversity risk analysis, as well as decarbonisation and carbon value chain assessments. We study trends to understand future directions of ESG in different industries and advise our clients as to the adequacy and effectiveness of their measures and strategy considerations.
