Making an impact that matters: our people, our communities
Responsible business is fundamental to Deloitte Australia’s strategic objective to make a positive impact on our people, our clients, our community and our environment.
Our global purpose is to make an impact that matters and ensure we make an enduring economic, social and cultural contribution that helps to position Australia for prosperity and sustainability.
Through our Responsible Business program, we seek to be a responsible corporate citizen and a positive force in the community. This year, our firm made a total annual community investment of $25.81 million to help not for profit organisations effect worthwhile change in our world, representing a 20% increase from FY17.
In 2018 we were again selected as a Winner for Community Contribution in the Australian Business Awards in recognition of our leadership in providing pro bono services. Deloitte also achieved Gold Employer status at the 2018 Australian LGBTI Inclusion Awards by Pride in Diversity.
As well as having a positive impact on the community, our Responsible Business activities are great connectors between our people and our teams.

Deloitte and the UN Sustainable Development Goals
On 1 January 2016, the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into effect. The 17 global goals provide a roadmap to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect the planet by 2030.
As a member of the United Nations Global Compact, Deloitte is committed to working towards the achievement of the SDGs. Our firm contributes towards these goals through our Responsible Business program, our client work with the nation's top business and government groups, and our broader culture programs: Diversity and Inclusion, and Wellbeing.
Read examples of how our firm is contributing to these goals in our 2018 Responsible Business report.
