Dive into sustainability consulting
This workshop was hosted by Justine Carlone (Senior Consultant, Sustainability and Impact Services at KPMG Montreal) and Samantha Miller (Manager, ESG & Sustainability Services at KPMG Toronto). They walked the audience through the work that a sustainability consultant at KPMG would do as well as what skills one would need to pursue such a career. To do this, Justine did a step-by-step walkthrough of an engagement cycle from start to finish, pausing to give many great insights and examples. Then, she and Sam each shared their experiences working at KPMG so far and expanded on some similarities and differences between the two offices. A key takeaway from the presentation was that there is a growing need for consultants with sustainability knowledge.
