This report is the PwC Communication on Progress (COP) for the UN Global Compact (UNGC). It details our work, progress and achievements within the area of corporate responsibility (CR), aligned with the UNGC’s ten principles. Unlike the FY 2012 COP, we have chosen to align the FY2013 COP with our existing approach to corporate reporting. As such, the relevant information can be found in our 2013 Global Annual Review and our global website www.pwc.com. This document maps the individual UNGC criteria to our responses via the use of web links.
In this Global Annual Review, we look at issues that impact our stakeholders around the world, and we examine our performance, our key network policies and standards, and our impact in corporate responsibility during FY 2013.

Read about our values, code of conduct, and what we stand for as a diverse firm of over 160,000 dedicated professionals. We call it The PwC Experience. And today, more than ever, we believe it is important to remind all our stakeholders of where we stand — and what we stand for.
In 2008, over 280,000 people of the Sudan’s Darfur region fled their homeland looking for refuge in the desert nation of Chad. While refugees’ basic needs had largely been met, the children only had limited access to primary education. At that time, PwC was considering an initiative to give our people – all over the world – the chance to make a lasting difference.
As part of the improvement in our CR reporting and communications a global environmental statement was developed to provide guidance to PwC firms across the Network. Any local environmental policy should align to the Network statement.
