Deloitte launched WorldClimate—our strategy to drive responsible climate choices within our organization and beyond—in FY2020 to address the world’s urgent climate crisis with achievable, measurable and science-based actions. Deloitte leaders, including the Deloitte Global Executive, committed to align with the 1.5°C decarbonization pathway because anything less ambitious will not have the necessary impact. Deloitte’s WorldClimate carbon reduction goals are validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.
WorldClimate recognizes it will take collective action to combat climate change. That’s why we have adopted a three-pronged approach—actions we take, actions we inspire our people to take, and actions we take with others in our ecosystem.
Deloitte has committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 for its operations. To get there, we are embedding sustainability into policies and practices throughout the organization. And we are empowering our people to make climate-friendly decisions and influence others to do the same.
Deloitte also is actively engaging ecosystems to increase demand for responsible products and services, remove roadblocks that get in the way of enacting change, and create innovative climate solutions. We help shape the climate agenda through sponsorships and projects with organizations such as the World Economic Forum; and through activities surrounding key events such as the B7, the B20 and the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
