Today’s Solutions: March 01, 2024

While the number of big companies setting climate targets has grown rapidly in recent years, few of them have actually made climate change literacy a priority.

That, however, is not the case for Deloitte, which has recently announced that it’s rolling out a new climate change-focused training program for its 330,000 employees, developed in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund. “To address climate change, we need to understand it,” said Punit Renjen, Global CEO of Deloitte.

Some employees at the consulting company have a good understanding of climate science because Deloitte has been working with clients on sustainability strategies for about 20 years already. The new digital program, however, aims to provide everyone else with a good understanding of how climate change works and what they can do to address it.

According to the company, the training program consists of videos and data visualizations (and even spoken word poetry) to go beyond a collection of dry statistics. On top of that, the program also dives into concrete examples of climate impacts in specific communities, as well as examples of solutions — including details about what the company is doing internally to reduce its environmental footprint.

As it becomes ever more important for big businesses to step up and do their part in tackling climate change, Deloitte’s initiative should act as an example for other companies to follow.
