Commitment to environmental sustainability
Minimizing the ecological impact of our operations
If the Deloitte network was a sovereign state, its population would be larger than almost a quarter of the countries and dependent territories on Earth. That many people are bound to have a measurable influence on the environment. Our goal is to lessen that impact and promote environmental sustainability.
We also work vigorously to advance this agenda with member firm clients. Deloitte member firms have over 800 dedicated sustainability specialists helping clients transition to sustainable business models and practices that will deliver top- and bottom-line financial growth for the long term.
In January 2013, Deloitte's Global and U.S. headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York was awarded the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification at the Gold level for Commercial Interiors. LEED certification was a critical consideration when moving into our new headquarters.
Many member firms also are actively pursuing sustainability initiatives, both inside and outside their physical office spaces.
