Press Conference 2018

Strengthening our communities

Since its creation the KPMG Foundation gave a total over 2,000,000€ through donations received from the firm as well as staff. In 2018, the Foundation supported 12 different charities: 4 active in Luxembourg and in the Grande Région and 8 active in developing countries.

Our second year in the long-term partnership with Friendship Luxembourg allows our staff to directly contribute to improving the living conditions of communities in Bangladesh through the implementation of payroll giving. This has resulted so far in the creation of 1 primary school in the Bangladesh river chars, among other improvements. This year, two of our employees who make a monthly contribution to payroll giving were chosen and fully supported by KPMG Luxembourg to embark on a volunteering mission for the project in October.

*The KPMG Foundation also sponsored KPMG staff in charitable fundraising and sports events. Learn more about our Foundation's donations to charirable associations, our staff activities and why it matters to us!

CSR in action

As an active Corporate Citizen, we are highly focused on supporting measures in local communities and abroad which make progress towards education, decent work and economic growth and well-being.

In October we organized coding workshops for staff members, youth, and refugees during EU Codeweek to empower people from non-technical backgrounds to learn from each other and acquire new digital skills. In August, KPMG Luxembourg was a main sponsor of the 1st European Youth Parliament International Forum in Luxembourg. As a topic KPMG Luxembourg contributed for debate, youth delegates from 29 different countries addressed how the EU will prepare the next generation for a shift in the labour market given the rise of artificial intelligence in business.
