Over the past decade climate change and other issues in environmental sustainability have inexorably climbed up executives' agendas. Deloitte believes that businesses and institutions need to become more sustainable in order to secure a comfortable future for society. We accept our part in this agenda, which encompasses our business practices as well as member firms' client work.
Member firms are measuring their environmental impacts and defining actions to improve their performance. Deloitte's Global Corporate Responsibility Council has requested an analysis of opportunities to improve environmental performance given the organization's business growth projections, in order to set a worldwide target for reducing carbon emissions.
Member firms also have an invaluable opportunity to help clients use resources more efficiently and curb their environmental impacts. The member firms' network of more than 600 sustainability and climate change specialists provides sustainability advice and solutions and has done so for many years. Deloitte also maintains active involvement in the public discourse on sustainability issues and contributes to collaborative efforts to address global climate change.
