Professional services giant Deloitte announced today the launch of a new climate learning program for all of its 330,000 global employees. The program, developed in collaboration with World Wildlife Fund (WWF), is designed to engage employees on the impacts of climate change, inform them about how Deloitte is responding to the climate crisis, and inspire them to take action.
Carter Roberts, President and CEO of World Wildlife Fund, said:
“Climate change brings global impacts that demand global solutions. But we also know that companies have a big role to play in driving progress, and that the actions and voices of their employees really matter. Leading companies today are not only setting science-based targets to slash emissions and drive progress through their supply chains. They’re also engaging their customers and employees to make smarter choices and build momentum for broader societal progress. This new initiative from Deloitte taps into that trend and aims to bring it to scale.”
The new program is being rolled out over the next six months, and features videos, interactive data visualizations, and personal testimonials from dedicated Deloitte people taking climate action around the globe, complemented with a dynamic global learning platform of comprehensive climate content in a variety of mediums to increase climate literacy.
Deloitte stated that the new program aims to empower its people “to confidently navigate their contribution to addressing climate change by making responsible choices at home and at work, and in advising our clients.”
Punit Renjen, Deloitte Global CEO, said:
“To address climate change, we need to understand it. Through dedicated learning, we can help make the right choices necessary to combat the crisis. Deloitte’s climate learning program is a powerful tool to unlock the climate ambition of our most valuable asset and superpower—our people. By educating and inspiring all 330,000 of us, we can help drive collective action at the scale required to help address climate change.”
