Malta: KPMG Tree Planting Initiative
Last Updated: 12 January 2015

A group of KPMG employees and their family members have planted trees at the Salina National Park near Kennedy Grove as part of the audit firm's corporate social responsibility programme.

The activity was the latest in a series of events organised by KPMG aimed at making Malta greener.

Joseph Schembri, KPMG's senior partner, expressed his strong support for the initiative. He emphasises his belief that KPMG's "corporate responsibility is to inspire, challenge and empower our people, to positively contribute to our community and environment to create a sustainable business future. We believe that our commitment to social responsibility and the environment is increasingly essential to the success of our business and is a demonstration of our values in action". This belief has driven the firm to sponsor the planting of 360 trees, following an earlier initiative to plant another 260 trees in 2007.

KPMG has institutionalised its social responsibility obligation through the "KPMG in the community" programme. This programme is driven by a dedicated team of members coming from all the functions of the multi-disciplinary firm. This team originate concepts and initiatives, organises, manages, and/or supports a variety of events and focuses the active participation of partners, staff and their dependants.

Other recent events in the KPMG in the Community programme have included a day outing for the children at Angela house, various fundraising events and donations to institutions, as well as our participation in the Inspire 'Ghinna Nghinu' campaign that took place on Sunday 21 November 2010.
