It has been a transformative year for Deloitte SEA, our people, our clients and our society.
For our firm, standing still was not an option and by adapting and innovating, we were able to help our clients navigate through challenging business conditions while supporting our people and building our own resilience.
Guided by our shared values – to lead the way, take care of each other, foster inclusion, collaborate for measurable impact, and serve with integrity – we worked to earn the trust and respect of our key stakeholders and consistently deliver quality service to our clients.
Many of our initiatives revolved around advancing our corporate responsibility and sustainability pillars through WorldImpact. This portfolio of initiatives focuses on our commitment to make a tangible impact on society’s biggest challenges, create more opportunities and spur economic growth that is inclusive, sustainable and fair.
This includes our WorldClass program which aims to equip and expand opportunities for 100 million people by 2030. In Southeast Asia, our people volunteered in numerous programs which imparted knowledge and job skills to the less fortunate to help them achieve their potential and expand employment opportunities.
In FY2022, Deloitte SEA’s community investments totalled US$1,800,275 and our people touched 219,002 lives across the region through our WorldClass programs.
We have also made progress on our WorldClimate strategy and are committed to taking measurable, decisive actions on climate change to reach our net-zero emissions by 2030 goals, which consist of near-term greenhouse gas reduction goals that have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative.
Actions taken to drive responsible climate choices within our organisation include launching “WorldClimate – Rewrite our Future”, an e-learning program that empowers our people with the knowledge to make positive climate choices. In addition, we organised the Green Impact challenge which encouraged them to take a variety of sustainability-related actions.
We also partnered with leading organisations such as Climate Governance Singapore to raise Board members’ awareness of the impacts of climate change and help to equip them with the skills needed to navigate the associated risks and opportunities.
When we reflect on the past year, there are many lessons we have learnt and of which we can be proud. During a time of ongoing uncertainty, we acted responsibly and led with confidence.
In FY2023, we will continue working to achieve bold societal and environmental goals through the collective strengths of our people and the wider ecosystems in which we operate.
We strive everyday to build the firm of the future that is trusted, resilient and agile to meet the transformational challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
