Deloitte BVI releases its FY20 Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability (CR&S) Report
Working together to make an impact that matters
Tortola, British Virgin Islands - 12 January, 2021
The Deloitte British Virgin Islands FY20 Corporate Social Responsibility report highlights our commitment to driving societal change through working with charitable organizations, promoting environmental conservation and contributing to a sustainable and prosperous future for our local community.
Fiscal year 2020 brought a new set of challenges and unique opportunities for charitable giving. It involved our teams coming together to create lasting value by selecting various charitable initiatives that aligned to our Corporate Social Responsibility pillars. Through pro bono and skills-based volunteering, relationships with non-profits, charitable giving and other initiatives, our professionals demonstrated passion for making a positive impact in the community.
Charitable donations for the Deloitte British Virgin Islands for FY2020 totaled $14,504 with a combined value of $35,255 worth of staff volunteering and pro-bono time spent supporting a number of local charities and organizations. The sponsorship of charitable initiatives included the Bonecrusher Swim event that supports urgent medical cases in the BVI, primarily involving children and where there is a need for assistance with medical and other logistical costs. Working with our local community, we were also able to provide $10,500 worth of in-kind donations, including used office furiture, supplies and equipment to various schools and non-profit organizations.
Affirming our commitment to sustainability, an exciting highlight of FY20 was the launch of World Climate. Globally, Deloitte committed to eliminate net-zero carbon emissions by 2030. As part of our journey throughout this new WorldClimate initiative, Deloitte British Virgin Islands will encourage our professionals to act on climate change both at work and home. And we will engage our broader ecosystem to create solutions that facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy.
