5 Million Futures

Our purpose in action

A spotlight on... our new WorldClimate charities

We are delighted to announce three new charity partnerships with Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Soil Association and Whale & Dolphin Conservation to support Deloitte’s commitments to 5 Million Futures and WorldClimate.

These partnerships are one of the ways Deloitte is bringing the firm’s purpose to life by making an impact that matters on one of the most critical challenges of our lifetime: climate change. Deloitte is supporting the organisational aims of these charities to conserve wetlands, improve farming systems and protect whales and dolphins through specific volunteering programmes and by providing services pro bono.

How we are making a difference

At Deloitte, we believe we make the greatest societal impact when our professionals use their skills and expertise to help people. So that's what we do. Connecting with over 70 schools, charities and social enterprises across the country, we support a broad range of societal partners, providing pro bono, volunteering and fundraising. All of our people are given 3.5 hours per month to volunteer through our Deloitte Volunteer Hub.

One of the ways we are supporting the charity sector is through our Deloitte Digital Connect programme which aims to help charities close the digital divide. Delivered in collaboration with CAST, a charity helping organisations use digital for social good, Digital Connect brings together up to 50 charities, including Deloitte’s existing 5 Million Futures charity partners and connect them with expertise, advice, and a network to support their digital development.
