With this Sustainability Report, we provide comprehensive information about Baker Tilly's activities in Germany with the greatest possible transparency - with a particular focus on the four dimensions:
Environment and Nature
People and Society
Compliance, Integrity and Trust
We pursue the overarching corporate goal of having as little negative impact on our environment as possible through our work as an auditing and consulting company. To this end, we encourage our employees to think and act sustainably and create a suitable framework for them to be able to carry out their tasks in the most resource-efficient and responsible manner possible.
... this famous German proverb goes back more than half a century but still holds true. Doing good has always been a central component of Baker Tilly’s
corporate philosophy because for us it means taking responsibility. And yes: we also want you to read and hear about it – which is the very reason why we prepared this Sustainability Report.
We do not consider the issue of sustainability an obligation but an incentive to further improve as a company in a sustainable manner. It is therefore a key concern for us to continuously review our sustainability strategy and manage our commitment consistently along the three dimensions of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).
We consider our ESG approach the basis for responsible and sustainable Corporate Management. We wish to meet the highest ethical, social and ecological standards and focus on the well-being of our employees, the environment, society and, of course, our clients.
Each of us on the Baker Tilly Management Board is personally committed to ensuring that our actions as a company are not only in line with applicable laws and standards but also with our values. In doing so, we take into account the needs of the present without restricting the opportunities of future generations.
Since we intend to be measured by this claim, specifically and consistently, we have published this Sustainability Report. Let's discuss.
The Baker Tilly Management Board
Economic, ecological and social goals in harmony
The linchpin of our sustainability is our employees and our sustainable human resources management in order to ensure the long-term success of our company through healthy and satisfied employees as a central factor in Baker Tilly's success in Germany: from joining our company through a successful career , which possibly extends to the partnership and even the exit, our aim is a reliable, employee-centered corporate culture characterized by a high level of social competence.
Variety, diversity and the compatibility of family and work are essential building blocks of our human resources culture.
For ourselves and our clients, sustainability and the corresponding non-financial reporting are not just a compliance challenge, but an opportunity for a strategically anchored sustainable transformation that balances and harmonizes economic, ecological and social goals.
We ensure that all buildings are operated with as little energy as possible and are certified according to common standards.
For us as an auditing and consulting company, compliance and quality management play a central role. That's why we continually work to improve our processes and go far beyond meeting standards.
Outside of our company, we are committed to the common good with the Baker Tilly Foundation, founded in 2018. True to the motto: “We take responsibility today for a better tomorrow!” The foundation primarily supports committed people, initiatives and projects in the area of child and youth welfare and promotes education.
At the same time, our Sustainability Competence Center incorporates sustainability expertise and experience into all of our consulting and auditing services.
Our commitment at Baker Tilly in Germany
“Do good, but make sure others get to hear of it” - this famous German proverb dates back more than half a century but still holds true. Doing good has always been a central component of Baker Tilly’s corporate philosophy and for us it means above all taking responsibility. And yes: we also want you to read and hear about it – which is the very reason why we prepared this sustainability report.
