Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability
Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability (CR&S) addresses how a firm manages its business processes to generate stakeholder value while having a positive impact on the community and minimising any adverse impact on the environment. Professional behaviour is driven by our firm’s vision, mission and values.
Deloitte believes business is at its best when it helps to build a better society. The Deloitte network makes a difference by making progress with government, business, and civil society to create a positive impact, worldwide, every day.
