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 aim to 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:
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:
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.
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.
These aims form the core of our global CR Strategy. Across the PwC network (the Network), our firms support these network-wide goals. To align and structure our CR activities across the Network, 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.
“We believe that we have a responsibility to help create a sustainable future and make our world a better place. We look to exhibit responsible behaviour in everything we do, as well as engaging with our stakeholders and communities to have a positive impact in the places where we live and work.”Dennis M. Nally
