The climate crisis is one of these issues that has to be addressed immediately. It is crucial that, as the world continues to recover from the pandemic, we do not simply revert to our previous practices. Instead, we must seize this opportunity to develop multifaceted, creative solutions to combat climate change and fulfill the goals of the Paris Agreement.

But in order to protect the planet’s future, we must also make sure that it is a future in which the following generation is prepared to face the difficulties that will arise. The key to enabling people, nations, and society to meet the problems of future is investing in education and skills. However, due to educational inequality, 800 million young people are expected to lack even the most fundamental skills needed to succeed in the workforce by 2030. This holds back millions of people around the world.

Deloitte firmly believes that it is our duty to create a better, more sustainable future where each person is empowered, uplifted, and capable of realizing their full potential. By 2030, we want to increase possibilities for 100 million more people worldwide through our strategic programs WorldClass and WorldClimate, and to combat climate change both inside and outside of our organization.
