Consumers and employees have increasingly different expectations, and business leaders are under pressure to prove that their organisations are acting responsibly and acting sustainably.

“Under the umbrella of KPMG IMPACT, our firm is looking to make a positive impact towards the ESG agenda and sustainability by creating an inclusive workplace, empowering our community, helping to preserve natural resources in the jurisdictions in which we live and work, and helping businesses build a sustainable future that can drive growth and profitability. The pandemic has put a spotlight on sustainability, especially here in Bermuda.

“We have been resilient, but we need to be mindful of the future. We look forward to insights that Richard will share to see what global organisations and other jurisdictions are doing across the ESG spectrum, where they are focused and how it can impact Bermuda.”
