Addition of Ken Ogilvie to Deloitte team demonstrates how environmentalists and business leaders can effectively work together for common goal

May 28 /CSRwire/ - TORONTO,CANADA, - May 26, 2008 - Deloitte is proud to welcome Ken Ogilvie, former Executive Director of Pollution Probe, as a senior advisor in its leading-edge Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability practice.

Ken brings 30 years of experience in the public, institutional and not-for-profit sectors to Deloitte, where he will work with other experienced professionals to continue to help corporate Canada better understand, plan and manage sustainability, corporate responsibility and climate change issues.

Companies truly committed to building sustainable corporate responsibility strategies realize the business value of extracting and combining the knowledge of various backgrounds - from environmental science and engineering to business and accounting - and have been looking to Deloitte to help them for years.

"Proof of Deloitte"s leadership in this area is our firm's ability to attract eminent individuals like Ken to support our efforts and help our clients,' says Valerie Chort, partner and national leader of Deloitte's Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability practice. Last spring, Deloitte welcomed Johanne Gelinas, former federal Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development.

"Deloitte is committed to helping Canadian organizations take a proactive approach to managing sustainability and climate change issues," comments Ken Ogilvie. "They are clearly a step ahead with their ability to bring together traditional environmentalists and corporate Canada to work together and strive for a common goal."
