A commitment to social impact and helping end modern slavery
Deloitte’s Global Security and Justice practice helps clients make globally informed and locally relevant choices about border management, law enforcement, aviation, and immigration. The overarching goal of our efforts is to help clients solve security-related challenges, which includes anti-human trafficking (AHT).
Human trafficking is an increasingly lucrative enterprise, one that generates around $32 billion, according to UN estimates1, and it’s estimated that there are 21-30 million slaves globally.2
Why we’re committed
A strong relationship exists between the force for good through societal programs, such as ending human trafficking, and effective business strategies. It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing for our business, our communities, and our people.
- Our core values: Active citizenship is one of Deloitte’s core values. Citizenship drives measurable change in our communities, inspires our actions as societal change makers, and instills great pride in knowing that what we do best—applying our skills and experience—accelerates positive, societal impact.
- Our clients: As more businesses are moving toward the sustainability model and consider the triple bottom line—people, planet, and profit—Deloitte is one step ahead, offering clients insight and solutions to combat human trafficking within their operations. In addition, Deloitte works with governments to apply innovative solutions to AHT policy and legislation.
- Our people: As a rising social impact issue, AHT is important to our practitioners who are concerned with working for companies that promote an ethos of “doing good is good business.”
Deloitte offers a unique combination of capabilities and experience from across functions and industries, including: due diligence; data analytics; training & awareness; strategy & innovation; supply chain; change management; information management; and process improvement.
Awards and Recognition
Consulting® magazine awarded Deloitte Consulting LLP with the Excellence in Social & Community Investments Award for its pro bono work with the Global Fund to End Slavery (GFTES). The award honors organizations for working with nonprofits, government entities, associations, and private and public sector companies in either a pro bono, discounted, or volunteer basis for the greater good. Deloitte partnered with GFTES to build an actionable approach for the budding nonprofit, entitled “Kickstarting Growth”, intended to serve as a guidebook with insights and strategies to accelerate the start-up’s progress. By developing this strategic path forward for GFTES, Deloitte enabled the nonprofit to shift from a startup model to a more impactful and sustainable organization, one that is equipped with the necessary tools to set measurable goals to disrupt the global business of slavery.
