With business practices under increasing scrutiny by regulators, analysts, media and stakeholders, corporate responsibility and sustainability (CR&S) is fast becoming a critical issue for companies. CR&S is about identifying the risks and opportunities that arise from global trends impacting a company. These trends include the emergence of new consumer and labor markets, the increased scarcity of resources and the effects of climate change. By implementing CR&S, businesses can achieve the right balance between their own interests and those of the environment and society at large with the aim of generating added value for their company.
Deloitte’s approach identifies the economic, social, and environmental issues relative to a company, assesses the added value of finding the right balance between these areas and aligns them to create shareholder and stakeholder value. By combining our business knowledge and expertise with CR&S specific competencies, we can help you implement CR&S as an undivided part of the overall strategy, governance, business processes, management information systems and internal control.
