Public policy

The Deloitte Global Public Policy team participates in policy discussions focused on some of today’s most important socioeconomic challenges, helping to inform the policy debate and bring clarity to the interconnected challenges facing the world.

The unique breadth of Deloitte’s businesses, and the perspectives gained by working with clients, our people and the communities in which we live and work, informs our policy voice. The public policy team works closely with Deloitte risk and regulatory teams to develop our policy agenda and inform the choices the Deloitte organisation makes, aligning Deloitte’s broader societal interests with responsible business decision-making.

The public policy team executes our policy agenda by engaging meaningfully with policymakers, regulators and many other key policymaking influencers—advocating that business, government and society work together to make a positive impact for people, the planet, and prosperity.

Our key policy focus areas include:

  • Championing the long-term health and sustainability of the planet through climate equity and reporting of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) information;
  • Underscoring diversity, equity and inclusion to empower greater economic and social prosperity;
  • Informing the future of regulation in an era of exponential technological advancement, including artificial intelligence; and
  • Supporting a holistic approach to measuring social progress.

Deloitte people help advance our public policy agenda by actively participating in The World Economic Forum and the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP). We also work with key stakeholders within economies and supranational organisations, including the:

  • Group of 20 (G20), including the Business 20 (B20)
  • Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), including Business at OECD (BIAC)
  • Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC)
  • International Organization of Employers (IOE)
  • Social Progress Imperative (SPI)

The Deloitte Global Public Policy program is complemented by a range of Deloitte firm public policy programs. Together, Deloitte Global and the Deloitte firms coordinate public policy activities, engagement and positions across geographies and businesses, amplifying impact and influence.

Through the challenges and uncertainties of the past year, Deloitte has strengthened credibility and trust with stakeholders by consistently living our purpose.
