Corporate responsibility at Deloitte
We believe that business has a responsibility to influence positive social outcomes. We’re increasingly applying our professional skills and knowledge in addition to our resources to drive impact.
Our people are at the centre of everything we do at Deloitte. We strive to be a leading destination for top talent, and are deliberate about driving forward a differentiated talent experience.
Deloitte promotes sustainability efforts across the firm, and helps clients transition to sustainable business models.
Our objective is to be the market leader in our field, delivering unique value to our clients with quality and distinction while upholding our commitment to ethics and integrity in all aspects of our work.
Making a WorldClass impact
By 2030, half of the world’s youth will lack the required skills for future jobs. That’s why Deloitte developed WorldClass, our global initiative to empower 50 million futures by 2030. Through WorldClass, we apply our skills to empower individuals through education, skills development, and access to opportunity.
WorldClass is Deloitte’s global ambition to prepare 50 million futures for a world of opportunity. In FY18, through our education and skills-building initiatives, Deloitte Canada positively impacted more than 67,000 people, through both one-on-one mentoring activities, and our capacity-building advisory work with community organizations.
Using our skills to make an impact every day
Through Deloitte’s Canadian Corporate Responsibility strategy, Tomorrow, Together, we use our professional skills to drive social impact, through skills-based volunteering and pro bono projects. The shift to a skills-first approach has seen a dramatic increase in the number of hours committed to these activities.
Inclusion starts at the top
In recent years, Deloitte has made progress towards greater gender equality in leadership positions. Women made up 40 percent of newly admitted partners in 2018. We continually work to create the winning conditions where all people can connect, belong, and grow.
Reducing the firm’s paper footprint is an everyday commitment Deloitte people have made in the workplace. This behavioural shift to a paper-lite environment is possible thanks to an electronic records management system, cloud printing and smart-board technology.
Deloitte’s gone paper-lite, with a reduction of 28.7 million prints since the start of FY16.
