KPMG Responsible Investment Services

Responsible investment is growing in popularity as asset owners look for investments that not only provide a financial return but also generate measurable benefits for the environment and society. Increasingly, investors and companies are incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities when making investment decisions and throughout the investment life-cycle in order to allocate and protect capital effectively.

We can help you to:
• Develop or enhance your responsible investment policy and strategy to help you embed ESG considerations
• Understand your investor and stakeholder ESG requirements and benchmark against peers
• Develop policies on ESG topics, such as climate change, cybersecurity, human rights, supply chain and circularity
• Perform ESG due diligence procedures to identify key ESG risks and opportunities in deal negotiations
• Quantify impact of ESG factors in your investment portfolio
• Raise awareness and understanding of ESG requirements and trends, including director training
• Engage portfolio companies to identify and quantify their ESG risks and opportunities
• Evaluate your sustainable financing objectives and funding structures such as Green Bonds
• Enhance your communication and disclosures on responsible investment activities, including to frameworks such as the UN PRI or the FSB-TCFD recommendations
• Provide independent assurance over responsible investment reporting and disclosures
