Firms in the PwC network have different priorities in relation to CR. Our global CR strategy provides a common vision for leadership but allows for flexibility in the pace, prioritisation and localisation of activities. To provide practical yet flexible guidance on strategy implementation for PwC firms we have developed "leadership ladders".
For each focus area the ladders provide practical guidance and inspiration to progress from foundation level CR activities to CR leadership. Each of the steps of the ladder considers four dimensions: behaviour change; strategy and policy; measurement and engagement; and impact assessment.
All PwC firms are expected to fulfil key elements of the Foundation Level while our 21 largest firms are expected to achieve all Foundation level indicators. All PwC firms are encouraged to progress further, particularly in areas they feel are more locally relevant.
The leadership ladders work alongside our Global Code of Conduct to which all PwC firms adhere. Below we provide a summary of the type of guidance included in the leadership ladders.
