Reporting process

The Deloitte 2013 Global Impact Report aims to provide Deloitte stakeholders with a truly global and balanced picture of Deloitte's impact on society and ongoing commitment to remain a leader in our professions.

In accounting for Deloitte's contributions and performance, we strive to intertwine the interests and concerns of our stakeholders with our own motivations, approaches, and priorities. Stakeholder groups identified as most important to engage are those that:

  • Help influence Deloitte's success;
  • Are highly affected by Deloitte's endeavors;
  • Alter the markets, regulatory settings, and industries in which Deloitte operates; and
  • Affect the supply of resources that are critical to Deloitte's business.

Deloitte conducts ongoing stakeholder engagement to maintain a pulse on what is important to groups we impact, as well as those groups that impact us. We also perform occasional, complex "deep dives," such as last year's multi-variant stakeholder analysis for Deloitte people and member firm clients. A full list of the stakeholders with whom we engage and their priority issues are available in the stakeholder engagement summary table.

Material issues for corporate responsibility shaped the scope and content of this report. Materiality was determined by considering stakeholder issues analyzed through stakeholder engagement and with respect to Deloitte's business strategy. In the resulting materiality matrix, issues are classified into three categories according to their overall importance.

Stakeholders likely to read the Global Report include current and prospective employees, member firms' clients and suppliers, media, market analysts, and civil society organizations. A detailed description of this report's boundaries and the performance measurement methods used is available in the Basis for reporting section.
