Finance for the Future Awards
Making an impact on businesses and society alike
Engrained in all our work is our global commitment to being a responsible business and doing what matters most, for our clients, our people and society. As part of this commitment, we are proud to partner with ICAEW and A4S to deliver the Finance for the Future Awards. These international awards promote, recognize and share best practice on the role of accounting for sustainability.
We believe that finance functions have an enviable perspective, with a holistic view of the business and making the department pivotal in embedding long-term sustainability.
As a firm, we seek to drive higher standards of governance. It is through all this and more that we support our clients’ success and foster sustainable economic growth and a more prosperous society.
"Deloitte is proud to be partnering with ICAEW and A4S for the Finance for the Future Awards. The awards recognize that the finance function is pivotal in building a sustainable business model which exploits those resources – financial and non-financial – that translate into value for the investor."
David Cruickshank - Global Chairman, Deloitte
