Investing in the communities in which we live and work is key to Deloitte.
Aligned with Deloitte’s identity as a coaching and learning organisation, its extensive corporate responsibility programme focuses on innovation, education and entrepreneurship. Based on these criteria the organisation works closely with structural partners to support a variety of social projects in Belgium and abroad.
Deloitte recognises its responsibility as a major business to employ resources as sustainably as possible. At the start of 2008 Deloitte launched Greening the Green Dot, a bold initiative to cut its CO2 emissions 25% by FY12. Three years on, slightly ahead of schedule, the firm’s carbon footprint per person is down 16%. To achieve the additional 9% drop in emissions Deloitte focuses on energy, mobility and air travel.
A word from the CEO:
"Our social programme aims to encourage entrepreneurship amongst disadvantaged people around the world." Rik Vanpeteghem.
