Climate & Sustainability

Guiding organisations to a more sustainable future

Organisations that align their goals with the long-term goals of society will be more viable — and valuable — in the future. This requires a shift in how organisations conduct business, operate and invest. But our world is demanding it. Governments around the world are setting increasingly ambitious carbon reduction targets. This, combined with increasing pressure from investors, regulators, governments, consumers and internal stakeholders, has made acting on issues of climate and sustainability an imperative for every organisation.

Organisations that can innovate and navigate rapidly away from a carbon-intensive global economy will find new opportunities to grow and create value.

And Deloitte can help you.

Climate & Decarbonisation

Accelerating transformation toward a low-carbon future
Society has accelerated its approach to climate and decarbonisation, putting organisations under renewed pressure to reduce emissions and achieve net-zero. We help clients to lower emissions and decarbonise operations through new technologies, sustainable operating practices and business model transformations.

Circular
economy

Building systems to reduce, restore and recover resources
Organisations are facing supply chain insecurity, policy developments supporting reductions in GHG emissions and the pressures of changing societal values. We guide clients through strategic decisions along the supply chain to address product design, optimise resource yields and minimise system risks.

Close

Sustainable supply chain

Driving sustainable practices across the supply chain
Beyond complying with the latest legislation, organisations must also address traceability and indirect environmental and social impacts across their value chain and with partners. We help clients understand how to identify, mitigate and adapt to a wide range of risks in their supply chains to build a resilient, transparent and future-proof business.

Close

Sustainable finance

Driving the transformation to a more sustainable future
Sustainable finance requires more than risk management. Increasing stakeholder pressures are creating a need for sustainability transformation in finance. We help identify where investments, lending, and operational finances might carry social and environmental risks, and work to mitigate them.

Close

ESG reporting & Assurance

Integrating ESG into corporate reporting
Internal and external stakeholders require clear, reliable information about risks and opportunities related to climate and other ESG criteria. We guide the delivery of robust and transparent disclosures. We focus on impact evaluation, reporting and communication while verify qualitative and quantitative data.
