In commenting on the firm’s impact on Barbados’ business landscape, Grant McDonald, Country Managing Partner of KPMG in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, said, “We are immensely proud to celebrate 50 years of meeting the changing needs of businesses across several industries in Barbados as they navigate complex challenges, improve their operations and meet regulatory requirements. We could not have achieved this longevity and growth over the past five decades without the confidence placed in us by our clients, our colleagues, and the broader community,” he said.

Since its establishment in 1973, KPMG has been fostering a strong relationship with the Barbadian community and in recognition of its 50th anniversary, will launch a series of community projects to give back beyond its core business operations, starting with environmental sustainability.

“I am proud to announce that in honour of our 50th anniversary, we will be planting 50 trees across the island which will serve as a tangible demonstration of our dedication to environmental conservation, climate change mitigation, community engagement, and making a positive impact on the planet,” said Grant McDonald, Country Managing Partner.

This project forms part of the firm’s wider Environment Social Governance (ESG) focus which considers the broader impact of its operations on the environment, society, and stakeholders.

"<em>KPMG's environmental sustainability project extends beyond tree planting. The firm is actively working to reduce its own carbon footprint by implementing energy-efficient technologies, waste-reduction measures, and responsible resource management practices. These efforts align with the company's broader goal of achieving sustainable operations and minimizing its environmental impact,</em>" McDonald said.
