Earth Month 2023: Building better futures. Together.

The time to act is now.

Beyond World Earth Day, we have an incredible opportunity—all 415,000 of us across Deloitte and beyond—to help shape the world we live in and the environment we leave to future generations.

We believe it’s crucial to devote time, energy, and resources to the increasing environmental crisis we face as a global community. Our WorldClimate strategy drives responsible climate choices within our organisation and beyond.

Deloitte will celebrate Earth Month 2023 with a month-long global campaign featuring livestream events for Deloitte people and clients, thought leadership, and internal activities.

Nature and Biodiversity

Our ecosystems are directly impacted by climate change. If we make progress on climate change but ignore biodiversity, environmental challenges will likely remain. To help preserve our sustainable future, we should understand how living species coexist with the water, atmospheric, and other systems on our planet, and help protect and restore natural ecosystems.

Decarbonisation

Our world has been powered by fossil fuels for decades – with historically few clean, electric options. However, choosing renewable energy, home electrification, or electric transportation options can help reduce emissions and limit climate change.

Circular Economy

Most products are produced, used, and discarded in a linear fashion with a permanent end. How can we transition into a more efficient and thoughtful way of consumption? Embracing circular economy principles extends the life of products, reducing waste, and increasing reusability. It’s time to help create a world without waste.

How can businesses lead the transition to a nature-positive future?
Thursday, 13 April 2023 | 9:00 AM EDT / 02:00 PM GMT

While climate action is a critical aspect of good governance for many organisations, we should use this momentum to bring the same sentiment to integrating nature into business practises and explore how businesses can support wildlife and biodiversity protection and the transition to a nature-positive future. During this session, panelists will discuss:

  • The role of nature in achieving net-zero emissions targets and lessons from both COP27 and COP15
  • The business case for action on nature and how the C-suite and the board can put nature on their agenda while addressing this matter with suppliers, employees, and other stakeholders 
  • How business leaders can better value nature and biodiversity in their decision-making and the Accounting for Nature® Framework
How can supply chains be both sustainable and resilient?
Thursday, 27 April 2023 | 9:00 AM EDT / 2:00 PM BST

The scale and scope of disruption over the past few years has prompted organisations to give more consideration to their supply chain strategies. Currently, many organisations typically evaluate the sustainability and resilience of their supply chain as two independent factors, but in order to help enhance and reinforce client-supplier relationships and comply with evolving regulations, organisations should take a longer-term view.

During this conversation, we will explore:

  • How organisations can benefit from integrating both sustainability and resilience into their supply chains; and
  • How leveraging technology and data can help organisations improve transparency, traceability, and trackability

WEF The Chairperson’s Guide to Valuing Nature – in collaboration with Deloitte

 

Nature is the foundation of human existence. Although businesses depend on nature for all activities, they undervalue and neglect it as an asset, leading to poor business decisions with respect to the natural world. This guide explores these risks and opportunities and outlines key steps to help chairpersons incorporate nature as core to business strategy.
