A New Vision for Value with KPMG
As economic, social and environmental megaforces transform the operating landscape for business, the disconnect between corporate and societal value creation is disappearing. A new report by KPMG International, A New Vision of Value, argues that societal value and corporate value are increasingly connected.
In this webinar KPMG will provide a comprehensive overview of their True Value Methodology, which has been developed to help clients understand their social value creation. The methodology draws on existing tools and techniques for valuing social and environmental externalities, including Social Return on Investment (SROI) techniques.
