ESG, Sustainability & Climate

Together we can make an impact that matters

The decisions we make today can impact the quality of life for the generations to come. A better future is entirely possible, but it will require a profound and lasting change in attitudes and behaviors. And it will depend on sharing knowledge and experience more broadly than ever before. Deloitte helps organizations make progress on their journey toward long-term sustainability and value creation.
Together, let’s reimagine the way we work – and build vibrant economies that are sustainable well into the future.

Enabling a business imperative

Many organizations are facing growing pressure from investors, regulators, consumers and internal stakeholders to set ambitious carbon reduction targets and implement abatement strategies. According to the Deloitte 2023 CxO Sustainability Report, many CxOs ranked climate change as a “top three issue” and 75% said their organizations have increased their sustainability investments over the past year. However, moving from strategy to action can be overwhelming and confusing, and over a third of organizations haven’t implemented more than one of five “needle-moving” sustainability actions.

How Deloitte helps organizations toward a more sustainable future

For over 20 years, Deloitte has helped organizations make progress toward delivering sustainable value for their stakeholders – from investors, customers and business partners, to regulators, governments, and communities. Deloitte serves organizations as they redefine their strategies, embed sustainability into their operations, meet disclosure and regulatory requirements and helps them accelerate the transformation of their organizations.
Through innovative approaches, digital solutions, deep industry experience, and lessons learned from our own journey, Deloitte works with organizations to meaningfully embed sustainability into decision-making and operations.

Our ESG, Sustainability & Climate services:

We help organizations develop and implement comprehensive strategies that embed environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in their business models and operations.

We work with organisations to accurately measure, track, and report their sustainability performance and ESG metrics to stakeholders, enhancing transparency and accountability and responding to regulatory requirements.

We help companies develop tailor-made approaches to prepare their corporate governance functions (compliance management, risk management, internal control, internal audit) for ESG requirements.

We support organizations in identifying their sources of GHG emissions, quantifying their carbon footprint across the entire supply chain and defining the abatement options that create both environmental and financial benefits.

We help financial institutions implement robust ESG data management frameworks aligned with the regulation, assess and manage their exposure to ESG and climate risks, set up sustainable financing frameworks and launch new products.

We assist governments and international development organisations in adopting and implementing sustainable policies and projects that drive the green agenda in private sector.

We support companies in screening and managing risk in their entire supply chain by leveraging data, technology, partnership models, operational excellence and best practice governance.

We guide companies in transitioning to a circular economy model, where resources are used more efficiently, waste is minimized, and products are designed in a way to promote sustainability and reduce environmental impact.

We guide start-ups and SMEs on their sustainable innovation journey, through the sustainable business model redesign, capacity building support and sustainable business optimization.

Our latest insights

Deloitte 2023 CxO Sustainability Report

Over the last year, global executives have faced a number of challenges, including economic uncertainty, geopolitical conflict, supply chain disruptions, and talent shortages, among others. Despite these headwinds, concern over climate change continues to be a top priority for CxOs and their organizations.

The turning point

A Global Summary

Time is no longer running out to act on climate change; it’s up, and the global economy is at a crossroads. But, if the world acts now to rapidly achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century, the transformation of the economy would set the world up for stronger economic growth by 2070. Such a transformation could increase the size of the world economy by $43 trillion in net present value terms from 2021-2070. We have the technologies, business models, and policy approaches today to deliver rapid decarbonization and limit global warming to as close to 1.5°C by century’s end. We cannot afford to waste another year, another month, debating the merits of doing something versus doing nothing. As leaders, every choice, every day is a chance to speed the realization of that vision.

Systems change for a sustainable future

Rethinking corporate climate strategy

Climate change is transforming the global business landscape, but many corporate leaders continue to underestimate the speed and scale with which the shift to a low-emissions economy is likely to unfold—and they are failing to recognize the substantial business opportunity associated with the transition. As leaders shift from ambition to action, understanding and accelerating systems transformation will be crucial. Explore a framework that can help organizations design a corporate climate strategy to drive change and create new value in the climate-aligned economy.

The Global Circularity Gap

The global economy has fallen to be 7.2% circular.

Circularity poses opportunity to relieve planetary pressures progress to climate goals, and create thriving societies.
