Deloitte is committed to the highest levels of ethics, integrity and quality. This is evidenced by our business practices and client service standards, our leadership behaviour and shared values, and most importantly, by the quality of the people we employ. In fact, ethics, integrity and quality are at the core of all our activities.
Deloitte and its member firms strive to do not only what is legal, but what is right. Deloitte people have high professional and ethical standards, and demonstrate these standards every day through the delivery of quality professional services. They understand that doing the right thing means operating within the letter and the spirit of the laws that govern their professions and the global marketplace.
Integrity and ethical behaviour are both core aspects of Deloitte culture. They guide our people in making business decisions, in the actions they take, and in the way they treat their clients and each other. Deloitte sustains this culture by providing an open and consultative environment, which encourages Deloitte people to raise issues and discuss differences of opinion.
In addition, Deloitte member firms work hard to provide all of their people with the appropriate tools and guidance, to ensure that they can make ethical decisions and take responsible actions every day.
Deloitte ethical principles provide the foundation for ethical behaviour that unites all employees in all Deloitte offices all over the world. In particular, these 9 principles offer guidance about appropriate ethical and professional conduct covering areas that are critically important to our clients, people and society.
