At Deloitte, one of our main priorities is delivering a service of immeasurable excellence to our clients. We live our purpose of making an impact that matters by delivering the innovative solutions and insights our clients need to address their most complex business challenges. By committing to activating our purpose, our people continue to deliver a service that matters to our clients both nationally and internationally.
It is through our commitment to making an impact that matters for our local communities that our people demonstrate their passion for making and driving societal change. At Deloitte Ireland, we measure success in many ways but it is our positive and measurable impact in our communities in which we take particular pride. Through our Corporate Responsibility programmes we are committed to positively impacting the world around us, contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and tackling the world’s most pressing societal issues.
Our purpose, to make an impact that matters for our clients, our people, our community and our planet is something that we have examined in more detail than ever, throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic. Continuing to make a positive impact under each pillar of our purpose is something that we have strived to do in all of our decision-making during the crisis, keeping our communication strong and our thinking clear. Leading from the heart and the head, we are working to inspire organisations to persevere through these uncertain times by equipping them for a step change that creates more value not just for shareholders, but for society as whole while also ensuring our peoples health and safety remains a priority.
At Deloitte, our practitioners make an impact that matters, every day, thriving in a dynamic culture of inclusion, collaboration and high performance. That is why at Deloitte, we encourage an open and flexible working environment. We recognise that our people are our best asset and so we have created an environment and a culture where our people can bring every aspect of themselves to work.
As the issue of climate change continues to grow, we are committed to protecting our planet through our internal sustainability initiatives. Launched in 2008, our Green Agenda environmental programme demonstrates our long-standing commitment to managing our impact on the planet. Our goal is to reduce our firm’s impact on the environment, promoting sustainability and environmental awareness at all levels.
