Our global CR strategy

 

At PwC we believe in being 'part of it': part of the global conversation and movement towards responsible business practices that create positive change in the world.

We have many capabilities that are relevant to CR – the same ones we use in our businesses every day – and we put these to use working with others to make a difference. We help organisations around the world strengthen their own CR agendas through the many services that we provide every day. For example:

  • We're managing our own impact, but we're also uniquely positioned as a network of professional services firms to help integrate and foster change around CR issues in ways that have more widespread effects.
  • We review, advise and transform thousands of businesses around the globe every year.
  • We offer services that enhance trust and transparency between government, business and society.
  • We contribute to the development of the standards that underpin financial systems and industries.
  • We’re developing new ways of measuring environmental, social and economic impacts as well as other services through our Sustainability and Climate Change practices.

However, we want to go further. Through our own CR agenda, we can be part of the solution to global challenges in two ways. We set out our strategic intent as:

Being a catalyst for change, which is about using our skills, voice, and relationships to work with others and influence activities that make a difference, create change and have a lasting impact on the world around us.

Doing the right thing, which means playing our part on responsible business issues that are central to our business – from the quality of our services and the diversity of our people, to our engagement with communities and our environmental footprint.

These aims form the core of our global CR Strategy and across the PwC network, our firms support these goals. Our CR strategy is tailored to our specific strengths and opportunities, as a network of professional services firms. To align and structure our CR activities, we focus on four areas in which PwC people across the world can play their part: responsible business, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, and environmental stewardship.
