Deloitte’s sustainability journey

  • Deloitte is committed to a long-term sustainability journey in which it addresses its own environmental impacts and support clients as they seek to do the same.
  • Our ambition is to reduce greenhouse gas building emissions by 36% per unit of area, fleet emissions by 11% and travel per FTE by 10% by FY2025 based on the FY2017 baseline. The building and fleet emissions components of the goals were crafted following science-based methodology.
  • Furthering Deloitte’s commitment to the environment, emissions arising from Deloitte air travel during FY2019 are being offset through the purchase of carbon credits that are third-party verified.
  • Senior leaders also engage on the topic of environmental sustainability through the quarterly meetings of the Deloitte Societal Impact Council, a senior leadership group focused on Deloitte’s social impact and responsible business agenda.
