Deloitte Luxembourg appoints Tom Pfeiffer as new CSR leader
30 November 2016
Shortly before the start of the year-end charity season, Deloitte Luxembourg has announced its new Corporate Social Responsibility Leader, Tom Pfeiffer. The Luxembourger, who joined the firm as audit partner in 2012, follows in the footsteps of Elizabeth Layer.
“I am happy to assume my new role as CSR leader. In a fast-paced and rapidly changing world, it is as important as ever to care about each other, our colleagues, society and our planet,” explains Tom Pfeiffer. “At Deloitte, corporate social responsibility refers to our desire and a conscious choice of integrating more than just financial matters into our business practice. Companies have a strong social responsibility, be it in terms of sustainable mobility solutions or ensuring a sustainable work place. I think it is important that we acknowledge this role and that we recognize the impact we can have also in our day-to-day work and share it with our clients.”
Tom Pfeiffer will work closely with Deloitte Luxembourg’s CSR team under the guidance of Frédéric Sabban. Together, they will streamline existing initiatives such as the Impact Days or the participation in charity events to establish a strong CSR mindset.
True to tradition, Deloitte will open the festive season on 5 December with the Klenge Maart
to support local charity organizations. During the whole day, employees can partake in sports challenges and other activities collecting money for a good cause. For three years now, the Operation Shoebox has been at the heart of this charity day. The initiative helps migrants, refugees and less fortunate people in Luxembourg by providing them with essential hygiene items that employees can pack and distribute in December and January.
“I am looking forward to the upcoming Klenge Maart. In addition to supporting local charity organizations, it inspires a very unifying spirit. You really notice that people wish to help and that they enjoy doing so as a team”, resumes Tom Pfeiffer. In 2015, more than 1250 shoeboxes were prepared and distributed.
