2020 Belgian Sustainability Report
Sustainability on a global level
For our firm, sustainability means being part of the next generation of companies that operate from an environment-first mindset to improve ecosystems, rebuild communities and restore nature. The opportunity to create a more sustainable world is at our collective fingertips. We all are compelled to act.
WorldClimate is a commitment to achieve net-zero emissions within Deloitte by 2030, green-up our own operations and extend our impact beyond the organisation.
We are doing our part to help the world achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement through a global climate strategy centred on changing behaviours within our organisation and among those we influence to take action. Acting in a regenerative way, the firm prioritises the environment by encouraging its people to make eco-friendly choices at work and home, and transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
Deloitte Belgium supports the WorldClimate strategy which revolves around economic, environmental and social themes.
The four pillars of Deloitte Global’s plan
- Reaching Net-Zero emissions by 2030 – Leveraging careful research and science-based recommendations to cut our carbon footprint and reach net-zero emissions within the next decade.
- Operating green – Pioneering a path to tackle climate change, its actions must speak for themselves.
- Empowering individuals – Engaging all 300,000+ of its people to make responsible choices and influence those around them to do the same.
- Engaging ecosystems – Achieving change is easier when everyone works together. No single company can deal with today’s urgent issues alone. We invest heavily in collaborations with our alliances, industries, NGOs and clients to ensure our funds go towards transforming climate ecosystems.
Build a better world in 2030 and beyond
