Corporate Responsibility at Deloitte
As we work to create a brighter future for the next generation, Deloitte has developed a Corporate Responsibility framework that measures the ﬁrm’s impact across four pillars:
We believe that business has a responsibility to inﬂuence positive social outcomes. We apply our professional skills, knowledge, and 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 we are deliberate about creating a diﬀerentiated talent experience.
We promote sustainability eﬀorts across the ﬁrm, and we help clients transition to sustainable business models.
The way we work
Our objective is to be the market leader in our ﬁeld, delivering value to our clients with quality and distinction while upholding our commitment to ethics and integrity in all aspects of our work.
Making an impact that matters for our people, our clients, and our communities is at the core of what Deloitte does every day. Our business and the decisions we make are anchored in this purpose."
— Anthony Viel, CEO, Deloitte Canada
Making a WorldClass impact, one future at a time
WorldClass is Deloitte’s global ambition to prepare 50 million people for the opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As our contribution to this initiative, Deloitte Canada has committed to making a positive impact on two million individuals by 2030 in Canada and Chile, with a focus on breaking down barriers to education, employment, and inclusion.
In our 2019 fiscal year, Deloitte positively influenced the lives of 597,896 individuals in Canada, aligned to our WorldClass objective.
Reducing emissions for a sustainable world
Since its inception seven years ago, our workplace modernization strategy, known as Orbis, has led to a sustained average 9 percent annual reduction in office emissions.
The transition to Orbis offices in the coming years will be key to our success in reaching our goal of reducing our electricity and natural gas emissions by 14 percent by 2025.
Promoting gender equality to ensure diverse perspectives
We continue to work toward gender balance as part of our commitment to becoming the most inclusive professional services firm in Canada and Chile. In 2019, 49 percent of promoted partners were female.
