The Corporate Responsibility Highlights 2012 publication document is our fourth annual publication to share our main challenges and successes within PwC’s four quadrants of Community, Environment, People and Marketplace. The topics discussed within these four quadrants were chosen based on a defined materiality process. We have asked our stakeholders to tell us which topics they are most interested in and have supplemented this information with in-depth reviews of our internal processes, policies and business approaches.
For each CR topic, we discuss its relevance to PwC and how we have chosen to approach the issue. Where appropriate, we have included performance measures to display how well we are currently doing, and to provide us with a benchmark to compare our progress in future reports. We recognize that this is just a start, and we will continue to look for ways to monitor our performance in ways that will make sense to our business as well as to our various stakeholders.
The Corporate Responsibility Highlights 2012 document covers initiatives, programs and associated performance indicators from July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012, which is our Fiscal Year (FY) 2012.
