About the Deloitte Impact Foundation
Why, What, How
The Deloitte Impact Foundation enables Deloitte's employees to apply their knowledge, energy and talents to benefit society across 3 themes: education, endurable society and societal innovation. The goal: making an impact that matters.
Every day, our people use their knowledge and expertise to help customers. But how great is it to use our knowledge and talents for society? As a large business service provider, Deloitte not only has an economic responsibility, but also a social responsibility. We aim to have the greatest social impact as possible, which is an important part of our joint global purpose: to make an impact that matters. That is why the Deloitte Impact Foundation has been launched in 2016.
"Deloitte is happy to contribute to society. It is an important part of our joint global purpose: to make an impact that matters." - Peter Bommel, CEO Deloitte The Netherlands
The Deloitte Impact Foundation allows every Deloitte professional to use his or her talent to make an impact on society. This opportunity is provided by an internal, virtual marketplace that brings supply and demand together. Our employees can spend 1% of their working time on projects of the Deloitte Impact Foundation.
The internal, virtual marketplace gives our professionals the opportunity to start new projects and/or join existing projects that have been initiated by their fellow colleagues. Projects need to comply with several criteria, such as focus on education, societal innovation & endurable society, and applying Deloitte's knowledge and expertise to benefit society. We encourage all Deloitters to spend 1% of their working time on projects of the Deloitte Impact Foundation by offering projects with defined tasks, but also by making time available.
