Strategy

The best of today’s business leaders are those who create sustainable operating environments that balance the immediate needs of the business with the needs of future generations.


Stakeholders from all quarters – customers, investors, governments, regulators, NGOs – all influence the corporate strategic agenda, to build operating environments that are sustainable and smartly designed to anticipate the future economic landscape.

Deloitte’s role is to help the leaders of our client organisations interpret this complex array of competing demands by using rich data analysis, market and materiality assessments, and ‘what-if’ scenario modelling.

We help identify and prioritise the ESG opportunities and decisions that will truly make a difference to the financial outturns and business models of their enterprises today, and to lay the foundations for the future. Making sustainability an integral part of the corporate strategy.

Realizing a renewable energy future

Although the year 2020 will most likely go down in history as the year Covid-19 struck the world, the year 2020 is also the year of the International Energy Agreements. In 2019, almost half of the European Union’s 28 member states had already achieved or were close to achieving the agreed 2020 renewable energy targets. Unlike the Netherlands, which seems to live up to earlier predictions of not achieving the set goal of producing 14 percent of the energy supply through renewable resources, at least not in 2020.

Groene, slimme steden in Nederland: wat is er nodig?

Wereldwijd wonen steeds meer mensen in steden, zo ook in Nederland waar ruim acht miljoen mensen in de Randstad leven. Al deze extra bewoners zorgen voor een flinke groei in de vraag naar groene energie. Duurzame energiebronnen (‘renewables’) zoals zonne- en windenergie zijn onderdeel van de oplossing, maar zorgen tegelijk voor uitdagingen zoals de impact op de openbare ruimte en capaciteitsproblemen bij netbeheerders. 'Groene, slimme steden bieden enorme kansen voor een leefbare, gezonde en economisch aantrekkelijke samenleving, mits we de praktische knelpunten zo snel mogelijk tackelen', betoogt Lennert Middelkoop. Zijn belangrijkste boodschap: kijk voorbij grenzen, organiseer samenwerkingsprocessen en wees creatief én pragmatisch.

De impact van emissievrije luchtvaart op de publieke sector

Vanaf 2040 is het mogelijk: koolstof- en emissievrije luchtvaart op intra-Europese routes, ofwel elektrisch vliegen.

De klimaatcrisis schreeuwt om digitalisering

Het is aan de coronapandemie te danken dat digitalisering in de zorg zo’n grote vlucht heeft genomen. Tegelijkertijd is het omgekeerde het geval: digitalisering heeft de zorg behoed voor erger. Het bleek een uitstekende oplossing in een periode waarin fysiek contact niet mogelijk of wenselijk was. Nu is er nóg een crisis die smacht naar digitale oplossingen, de klimaatcrisis. Deze crisis staat nog lang niet prominent genoeg op de agenda, betogen de initiatiefnemers van de ‘Klimaatcasus voor digitale gezondheid’: zorgstrateeg Lucien Engelen, RvB-voorzitter van het Maastricht UMC+ Helen Mertens en RvB-voorzitter van het Radboudumc Bertine Lahuis - in samenwerking met Deloitte, het ministerie van VWS en het Laurentius ziekenhuis in Roermond.
