Deloitte actively supports multiple efforts to help eradicate corruption throughout the world. Deloitte Global was an early signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and to the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI).
Deloitte Global’s anti-corruption policy includes requirements for Deloitte firms' own anti-corruption programs and addresses matters such as bribery, facilitation payments, political and charitable contributions, and gifts and entertainment. This policy requires Deloitte firms to conduct business in accordance with certain anti-corruption principles, including that Deloitte neither makes nor accepts bribes, and does not induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
The Deloitte Global anti-corruption team and Deloitte firm anti-corruption leaders work closely with senior Deloitte leaders to build and enhance a globally consistent, internal anti-corruption program across the Deloitte organization, which includes the following elements:
Additionally, Deloitte Global has a written policy requiring member firms to escalate corruption1 incidents meeting established criteria to the appropriate Deloitte Global senior leaders. In FY2023, no substantiated incidents of corruption were reported to Deloitte Global under this policy.
All Deloitte people are required to complete anti-corruption training—after being hired and every other year thereafter—that includes applicable policies, corruption red flags, and case scenarios.
Deloitte Global conducts a review program to assess compliance with anti-corruption policies and drive continuous improvement in Deloitte firm anti-corruption programs.
