Environmental protection is our top priority, just as adherence to ethical principles. How does it work at Deloitte?
We protect the environment we live in
In 2008, we decided to improve our general approach to the environment and launched a system supporting such activities. Every new employee is informed about our environmental policy. We make every effort to behave in an environmentally-friendly manner both in our offices and at the client’s premises. It is natural to us to give attention to waste sorting, the saving of resources, regular emission controls of our company vehicles and using recycled paper. Our Prague headquarters are located in an energy-efficient office building, Churchill I. We constantly seek new opportunities for enhancing the environment we live in.
Since 2008 we have held the ISO 14001 certificate for environmental management.
Deloitte: An Environmentally-Friendly Organisation
We have moved into a modern and environmentally friendly building; Churchill I in Prague Vinohrady has become our new headquarters. The building makes use of modern green technologies such as energy recovery, intelligent air distribution, a lighting system that adapts to sunlight and irrigation of green spaces with rainwater, which is also used for flushing the toilets.
We encourage our employees to cycle to work: Lockable bike sheds or showers are available for our employees. Cycling is generally at the forefront of our attention as we organise an annual cycling event in which our clients also take part.
We seek cost-saving measures in our offices wherever possible: We have installed new water meters and water-saving shower jets for the more-efficient water management. We also seek to increase humidifiers efficiency and enhance air distribution in the building while reducing electricity consumption.
White vs. ecological paper: We only use white paper for printing final versions of documents for our clients. Draft documents are usually presented by means of modern technology rather than printed. However, if printing is necessary, we use recycled paper.
We sort waste in all Deloitte’s offices: Containers for plastics, paper, glass, cardboard and old batteries are located in our offices and we newly have a container for biodegradable waste as well. Our IT department also collects discarded electronics and ensures its ecological liquidation.
We raise awareness of environmental issues among our employees: We inform our employees on environmental trends, educate them by way of internal training courses and encourage them in their private initiatives. Our employees use laptops with lower energy consumption.
