At Deloitte, our Purpose is to make an impact that matters for our clients, our people and the communities where we live and work. With Deloitte’s Purpose and Shared Values as our north stars, our WorldImpact programs focus the collective energy and skills of more than 415,000 people to drive impact in their communities and society.
As society faces increasingly complex challenges, we believe it is our responsibility to lead the way as we find solutions that help shape the world for the better. Through WorldImpact—our portfolio of initiatives focused on making a tangible impact on some of society’s biggest challenges in the areas of education and skills-building, climate change and sustainability, and diversity, equity and inclusion—we are helping to create a more sustainable and equitable world.
The widening gap in the education sector, coupled with challenges in increasing inequality and unemployment, and the impact of climate change – particularly with regards to the threat to food security – cements the need to identify affordable, sustainable, practical yet scalable solutions across our strategic pillars of education, entrepreneurship and agriculture.
We are cognisant of the power that can be unlocked through strategic partnerships and remain optimistic that in spite of these challenges, we will make a sustainable impact on our continent, as Deloitte Africa journeys toward impacting 14 million Africans by 2030
Mitigating the impacts of the climate crisis can be a monumental task. But together, we can drive positive change. Deloitte has launched WorldClimate, our strategy to drive responsible climate choices within our organisation and beyond.
Deloitte is committed to taking measurable, decisive action on climate change, empowering our people and engaging the broader ecosystem to help create solutions that can facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy. The opportunity to create a more sustainable world is at our collective fingertips, and we should all ask ourselves, “What climate action should I take today?”

We want our people to feel confident in being themselves—in and out of the workplace. To feel they belong. To do this, we lean into our ALL IN diversity, equity and inclusion strategy that not only empowers our people to be themselves, but educates and leads by example through inclusive leadership.
Our three pillars of inclusion include: achieving gender balance, advancing LGBT+ inclusion and supporting mental health.
Purpose-driven organisations not only create enormous value for society as a whole, but also thrive themselves, consistently demonstrating higher growth and profit than their counterparts. Deloitte’s record over the past year is testament to that.
