Expert Insight: KPMG’s Barend van Bergen from Business Fights Poverty on Vimeo.

“The financial crisis, and megatrends such as population growth and energy scarcity will transform the way business is done”

This edition of IBLF Expert Insight sees Shivvy Jervis speak to Barend van Bergen, Head of KPMG’s Global Centre of Excellence for Climate Change and Sustainability.

Barend explains how ten years ago, CSR was “a side issue – and today it’s clearly on the corporate agenda”. What does the future of this area look like? He asserts that we’ll see more regulation, activity from emerging markets and the involvement of the financial sector.

Barend also touches upon the criteria for professionals looking to build a career in CSR and sustainability.
