DTT member firms have a long tradition of actively supporting the communities where their professionals live and work. Each year thousands of Deloitte employees around the world participate in various activities to support their communities and DTT member firms contribute financial and pro-bono support to develop and sustain local communities. Below are select examples of DTT and member firm activities that promote environmental responsibility:
Sponsorships, donations, and charity
