We have been turning challenges on climate change, circular economy, and sustainable finance into competitive advantages for our clients for more than 20 years. When you need to operate a climate driven transformation, reshape your business models, create transparent, ethical supply chains, build engagement, or measure, evaluate and assure, we have the innovative approaches and digital solutions that will empower you to think and act differently. Together we can create a more sustainable, responsible, and lasting future.
We help our clients reframe and rethink their future as they navigate their way through the climate change transition.
For more than 20 years, we have helped companies to visualize, quantify and counteract climate risk.
Our teams build actionable transition strategies that use decarbonization models that exceed policy requirements now, and are resilient into the carbon-zero future.
We treat climate challenge as a business opportunity to rewrite the playbook and succeed.
A circular economy is one that is restorative and regenerative by design – with a focus on optimizing value circulation rather than preventing waste generation. Our clients face rising material costs, changing societal values, environmental benefits, supply security, value recovery, and new legislation. Among the key barriers are technology change, consumerism, costs for recovery and management of reverse logistics, and lack of experience.
At Deloitte, we rely on our deep-industry insights to guide our clients through strategic decisions along the supply chain that preserve and enhance natural capital, optimize resource yields, and minimize system risks by managing finite stocks and renewable flows.
Instead of discarding assets after only one product cycle, companies are developing ways to continually re-acquire and reintroduce these assets to market. A circular economy goes beyond the pursuit of waste prevention and waste reduction to inspire technological, organizational and social innovation across and within value chains.
Sustainable operations must first pledge to do no harm and commit to protect our precious resources for the future. When our clients assess their financial operations, they see complex risks that are growing.
Where might their investments, lending and operational finances carry social and environmental risks? And how do they take responsibility for any harm they might cause?
Our team of experienced professionals have a track record of visualizing and mitigating these risks and helping to integrate social and environmental criteria into their loans and investment activities in a trustworthy, credible manner.
Our clients are integrating corporate purpose and environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles into their strategies, enterprise risk management, and other areas of core business activities, while expectations on transparency and accountability are extending to new horizons, covering the most material ESG issues related to companies’ externalities.
Business leaders and stakeholders such as regulators and investors all require clear and reliable information on risks and opportunities related to climate and other ESG factors as well as on impacts and performance over time. This involves measuring progress against strategic targets through KPIs to keep internal and external stakeholders informed in a consistent manner and aligning with the most important reporting frameworks as standards for disclosure emerge, evolve and become institutionalized.
We have specialized teams of consultants dedicated to impact evaluation, reporting and communication, and qualified auditors for the verification of qualitative and quantitative data.
We recognize change starts within. Deloitte must set and meet high standards for itself, including achieving net-zero emissions by 2030.
We will also connect with others, empowering our professionals and engaging our broader ecosystem to create solutions that facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy. This will require reimagining, reinventing and redesigning many of the day-to-day experiences of our lives, as well as how businesses and economies operate.
The opportunity to create a more sustainable world is at our collective fingertips. We all are compelled to act.
