Our Environmental Targets

We are committed to reducing our Co2 emissions

Our carbon reduction goals

Climate change is one of the greatest environmental challenges facing the world and requires action. Business has a vital role to play in the transition to a low carbon society, with that in mind, Deloitte is committed to reducing its carbon emissions.

Deloitte’s Carbon Reduction Goals

In May 2019, the Deloitte Societal Impact Council committed to global carbon reduction goals for the Global Deloitte network. The global goals equate to a 20% per FTE reduction by FY2025 from our FY2017 levels.

They include:

  • 36% per unit of area reduction in our building emissions
  • 11% reduction in our fleet emissions
  • 10% per FTE reduction in travel emissions

Deloitte Ireland has committed to these goals and is collaborating with colleagues across our member firm, Deloitte NSE, to determine how we can collectively meet our targets.

Our progress towards achieving our goals will be published in our Impact Report annually. 

Low Carbon Pledge

The first action taken by the Leaders Group on Sustainability, which was formed by Business in the Community Ireland in 2018, was The Low Carbon Pledge. This saw Deloitte and 46 other companies commit to a 50% reduction in scope one and two emissions by intensity by 2030.

Deloitte Ireland has been working to reduce our carbon footprint for many years and welcomed the opportunity to share our experience and progress with our customers, employees and the wider community.

Some recent projects undertaken include the upgrade of mechanical and
electrical plant machinery in our head office such as pump replacement, more
energy efficient calorifiers and the installation of zip taps throughout our
offices.
