JCC /JETRO/KPMG Seminar Renewable Energy ~Toward operating to create a sustainable environment~

At the UN Summit in September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as an ambition shared by the global community to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. Achievement of these goals is contingent upon the cooperation not only of government bodies, but across the international private sector as well.

Discussions are held between all stakeholders on how to create a sustainable environment. KPMG believes in the importance of sustainable energy innovation in the fight against climate change. Please click following link which shows KPMG’s involvement in Renewable Energy Projects.

At the seminar, we will first begin by a presentation by Rudolf Stegink – KPMG Advisory – on how KPMG has assisted one of its clients to realize a zero-emission operation on one of its sites. Bas Overtoom – KPMG Advisory – will subsequently demonstrate how KPMG is assisted and can assist using data analytics for its projects on sustainable energy innovation by using the facilities of  KPMG Lighthouse. The next presentation will be a testimonial by Dennis Heeger, CEO of Diamond Generating Europe B.V. – a group company of Mitsubishi Corporation – who will be sharing insights on renewable energy.

Next, Cees van der Helm – Partner, KPMG Meijburg & Co will list clear topics that will need to be addressed by businesses in order to prepare for the hard Brexit.

With the political scene changing day-by-day, especially since Ms. May announced her resignation as prime minister for the UK – and the outcome of the EU elections in the UK – the likelihood of a hard Brexit increases. Whereas from the beginning businesses had planned to be able to utilize a transition period till the end of 2020 and had hopes, even though small, on the UK remaining member of the Customs Union, now businesses need to prepare for a hard Brexit by October 31, 2019.

The seminar will close with a presentation by Hideyuki Ishibashi , the Unseen Photo 2018 Winner, who will share his story and discuss the artwork that he prepared for KPMG Meijburg & Co. The artwork is at display in the Pavilion of KPMG Meijburg & Co.
