KPMG is at COP27

KPMG is providing on-the-ground insights from the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

COP27 represents the world’s last best chance to limit global warming to 1.5°c, turn the Paris commitments into action, and help build a sustainable future for all. It is an opportunity for climate negotiations and to showcase climate action on the world stage.

KPMG’s COP27 Resource Center provides climate change insights aimed at helping you understand the potential impacts that COP27 may have on business, government, and society at large. We’re focused on measurable actions, and our insights can help leaders identify transformation opportunities tailored to their unique circumstances and prepare for a more sustainable future.

This is an opportunity to create a better world and tackle the most critical issues of our time. The only way to do this is together, but we must act now.
