Our ethical principles

Our written pledge to each other, our clients and our communities

All Deloitte professionals work from a common set of ethical principles…we consider them our shared values in action.

Our ethical principles clearly state the firm's fundamental beliefs of what is right, good, fair and just. We also believe in the power of one – that one individual makes a difference every time they do the right thing.

Each and every member of the firm bears the personal accountability to recognize the right thing, to ask if in doubt, and, most importantly, to choose to do the right thing.

No one at Deloitte is alone. The power of consultation is a hallmark of Deloitte's culture. By working together, we make decisions that are ethical and right, giving us confidence to look boldly into the future.


Ethical principles

  • We act with honesty and integrity.
  • We operate within the letter and the spirit of applicable law.
  • We bring appropriate skills and capabilities to every client assignment.
  • We are objective in forming our professional opinions and the advice we give.
  • We respect the confidentiality of information.
  • We are committed to fair business practices.
  • We recognize and respect the impact we have on the world around us.
  • We treat all our colleagues with respect, courtesy and fairness.
  • We lead by example, using our shared values as our foundation.
