Presentation and Acknowledgment
At KPMG, we view sustainability as a path to take, and as such, we have evolved in the way we manage and communicate. We are proud to present the third edition of our Sustainability report, in accordance with the guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), reaffirming our commitment to provide high quality services with transparency, valuing individuals and preserving the environment.

Through this report, we are accountable to our clients, partners and professionals, to sector specialists, society and the media. We present below our work, guidelines and main achievements in 2012, aligned with the KPMG international (KPMGi) global model. We have tried to demonstrate how, in all of our activities, we prioritize ethics and independence, and view challenges as opportunities for growth and innovation.
