Services and experience

Services provided:

KPMG is one of the world's leading professional services networks and provides services across a diverse range of areas. KPMG Australia's Climate Change and Sustainability team has over 40 team members across Australia who specialise in advisory and assurance.

We have a strong knowledge of, and experience with, the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI). For example, we recently provided assurance over a CFI project for an Indigenous organisation for their savanna burning project.

Our team also includes individuals involved in the development of the CFI legislation, and who led the development of the methodologies. This enables us to draw on extensive knowledge of the scheme and provide in-depth advice on the mechanics of the scheme as well as the feasibility of projects.

KPMG has an Australian Financial Services Licence which allows us to provide advice on carbon credits and how to strategically maximise the value of these.

We regularly work on governance and contractual arrangements. We set up frameworks for organisations to effectively deliver projects with the security of an adequate governance model.

We are able to provide comprehensive training in all aspects of the CFI, in interactive workshops, classroom, one-on-one and train-the-trainer formats.

KPMG has worked with many Indigenous organisations including the Indigenous Land Corporation, Indigenous Business Australia, the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence and Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience.

As well as working with Indigenous organisations, KPMG also contributes to the community. KPMG was the winner in 2012 of a Supply Nation (AIMSC) Special Recognition Award for extraordinary contribution to Indigenous supplier diversity. We have had Reconciliation Action Plans since 2009, over 120 KPMG people sent on secondment to Indigenous communities through the Jawun program and we also provide scholarships for Indigenous students.
