Gonzales joins Deloitte Philippines from one of the country’s largest and most diversified conglomerates, where he held the role of Chief Information Security Officer. He has more than two decades of experience in the areas of information risk management, enterprise risk management, security architecture, and data privacy, and has worked with organizations from a broad range of sectors including consumer goods, banking, transportation, telecommunications, manufacturing, and health care. Gonzales is certified in IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) Foundations. He is also a Computer Hacking Forensices Investigator (CHFI), an Information Security Management System (ISMS-ISO/IEC 2700i) Certified Practitioner, and a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM).

Bonar Laureto
Director
Risk Advisory Services (Climate & Sustainability)

Recognizing the growing threat of climate change and the opportunities for organizations to be a part of the solution, Deloitte Philippines brought on board a nine-person team of professionals with a combined 50+ years of experience working in the fields of sustainability, climate change, and risk management. Led by Director Bonar Laureto, the Climate & Sustainability advisory team brings to the table specialized knowledge in areas such as ESG reporting, sustainability strategy & roadmaps, decarbonization, climate resilience, circular economy, and ocean plastics and solid waste management to partner with organizations in taking bold climate action now.

Laureto has over 17 years of experience working with multi-stakeholder groups to deliver systemic solutions addressing climate change and other sustainable development challenges. In 2019, he was a lead consultant for a project to design and pilot-test a Philippine-customized, private sector-led Extended Producers’ Responsibility (EPR) system. The output, which includes standards for methodologies and protocols for waste footprint accounting and waste diversion accounting and certification, will enable companies – particularly those that use plastic packaging – to effectively meet compliance requirements under the country’s EPR Law.

With over 345,000 people in 150 countries, Deloitte provides audit & assurance, consulting, financial advisory, risk advisory, tax and related services to public and private clients across multiple industries. These new leaders, who were elevated to their roles in the Philippine practice during a period of great disruption, signal Deloitte Philippines’ commitment to remain a trusted partner and advisor to its clients, especially during times of uncertainty. As the world steadily reopens and the Philippines digs into the hard work of recovering from the coronavirus pandemic, Deloitte Philippines is ready to meet the challenges of, and help clients thrive in, the new world of work.
