Roundtable Events

A series of roundtables focused on advancing the global agenda and conversation around Responsible Tax.

The KPMG Global Responsible Tax Project roundtable series

The conversation around responsible tax is increasingly present on businesses’ agendas, particularly as multinational organizations are deciding upon and articulating their approach to tax governance and transparency as part of the wide environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda. In the discussions around sustainable business in a net-zero future, tax has a seat at the table.

To enable and enrich these conversations, the KPMG Global Responsible Tax Project will continue to hold round table series to bring together a wide range of stakeholders including global institutions, tax and other business leaders, activists, media, and more, for the opportunity to listen, learn, share and develop thinking on how tax systems operate and how businesses operate within them.

Many of the topics the project addresses or seeks to address will be an ongoing conversation. Explore the topics which still have roundtables or other content planned. The focus of the upcoming round table series will be – “Tax policy and gender” and “The nature of work and tax”. Throughout these chapters, leading professionals will come together to discuss what role taxation may play in these areas.

Tax and ESG: The view in Denmark

The ESG agenda is becoming an increasingly strategic issue for heads of tax, as demonstrated by the focus of investors and regulators on tax transparency and public disclosures. While not so long ago in Denmark, and as is still the case in other countries, heads of tax and investors debated on the need for tax transparency, the conversation here has now moved to what exactly to report on, and how the information and data disclosed by companies on their tax affairs should and will be used by investor and other stakeholders.

Tax and ESG – The view of investors

The ESG agenda is top of mind for many companies and investors and tax reporting is one area that can serve to bring ESG practice to life. However, there is a feeling that existing standards might either be too simplistic or overly challenging for some companies or not appropriate at their stage in a transparency journey. Therefore, the B Team, KMPG International and Jericho have started to focus on how to arrive at tax metrics to support ESG goals that could gain wider buy-in.
