At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.

KPMG Canada's Decarbonization Hub offers industry-specific expertise to support clients' decarbonization journey. The Hub comprises a dedicated team of professionals from multiple service lines, including Deal Advisory, Global Infrastructure Advisory, Tax, and ESG, with extensive experience in developing and implementing decarbonization strategies, optimizing reduction initiatives, and identifying and accessing incentives and funding programs to accelerate decarbonization efforts.

Our Global Infrastructure Advisory practice is seeking a motivated and high-performing Consultant/Senior Consultant to support the delivery of decarbonization planning and implementation, ESG strategies, and sustainability reporting to public and private sector clients across various industries.

This includes a multi-disciplinary group of professionals offering a curated range of skills and experience, including ESG strategy, sustainable finance, climate change and decarbonization, social and economic impact measurement, reporting, and assurance. We help our clients to effectively navigate the complex changes, challenges, and opportunities along their ESG journey.

At times, business needs arise, and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal work day or work week to fulfill the accountabilities of their job. Likewise, from time to time, people need extra time to devote to personal matters, and our flexible approach provides for this.
