Consulting within ESG and sustainability is the driving force behind revenue growth Deloitte

Today, Deloitte publishes its integrated annual report for the financial year 2021/2022, in which Deloitte Netherlands achieved a turnover of €1.270 billion. Compared to the previous financial year, this is a revenue increase of 23 percent. “The past financial year was characterized by high investments on the part of our customers, which resulted in a great demand for our services. It is positive to see that all business units have contributed to our increase in revenue,” says Hans Honig, CEO of Deloitte Holland. “Our strategic choice to support our customers in their transition to sustainability and digitization of their business models has paid off. For example, we have not only focused on ESG reporting and assurance, but also emphatically on the transition in the economy around themes such as energy, food, health and mobility”.

“The increasingly intensive cooperation in our international network contributes to growth. This enables us to serve our clients even better in major business transformations and complex audits.”

“The social importance of our organization lies to a large extent in the quality of our auditing activities. We are therefore proud that the quality of our audits is also recognized externally. In the past financial year, the final assessment of both the external audit by AFM and PCAOB was positive.”

“It is essential for us to attract and retain the best talent. It is therefore good to see that our employee satisfaction has increased, our employee brand is strong and that the number of employees in the Netherlands has grown by around 700 people in the last financial year. We have deliberately invested even more in our talent by creating a completely new offer for our employees, including an employment terms policy. This policy is mainly aimed at inclusiveness, much more flexibility and personal growth and development for our employees.”
