Governance

PwC is a global network of firms owned and operated locally in countries around the world.

This structure provides PwC firms with the flexibility to operate simultaneously as local and the global businesses.

Corporate responsibility at PwC is similarly governed at global and local levels and includes local and network leadership teams. Responsibility for the local corporate responsibility strategy and operations ultimately rests with our Corporate Responsibility Advisory Group, chaired by Bill McFarland, our Canadian CEO. At the network level it is led by the Global Corporate Responsibility Board (GCRB), which is chaired by Richard Collier-Keywood, a member of the firm’s Network Executive Team.

The GCRB comprises leaders from our largest PwC member firms, regional corporate responsibility leaders and sustainability subject matter experts from our Assurance and Advisory practices. In keeping with best practices, the GCRB also includes an external independent advisor.

At PwC Canada, we’re streamlining the ways in which we govern our Corporate Responsibility portfolio.
