Our public interest role and responsibility
As a public interest entity, and given our work across the breadth of the business landscape, we are acutely aware of the role we play and the impact of what we do – in terms of the services we provide, our role in the capital markets, and our wider impact on society.
Our impact and responsibility extend across a wide range of areas, including:
Public Interest Oversight Committee (PIOC)
The PIOC oversees public interest matters as they affect our firm. In PIOC Chairman Sir Michael Peat’s words, it is a “goalkeeper behind a very good defence”. As our 2014 Audit Transparency Report sets out, Deloitte’s Independent Non-Executives (INEs) help Deloitte partners ensure that the drive for growth does not compromise the firm’s long-term sustainability or the integrity or quality of the work we provide. In addition to serving on the PIOC, the INEs serve on the main Board of Partners, giving them broad and deep oversight of the firm’s activities.
2014 Impact Report
Our Impact Report is a statement of what we stand for as a firm and a reminder of the many ways we make a difference to our economy and society. The 2014 Report features a wide array of stories about:
- Our efforts in building trust and confidence in the capital markets
- How we support growth and competitiveness in the UK
- Our investment in building our people’s skills and helping foster future entrepreneurs and business leaders
- Our contribution to a sustainable and prosperous society
