PwC is one of the world's pre-eminent professional services organisations. As professional advisers we help our clients solve complex business problems and aim to enhance their ability to build value, manage risk and improve performance. As business advisors we play a significant role in the operation of the world's capital markets. We take pride in the fact that our services add value by helping to improve transparency, trust and consistency of business processes. In order to succeed, we must grow and develop, both as individuals and as a business. Our core values of excellence, teamwork and leadership help us to achieve this growth.
While we conduct our business within the framework of applicable professional standards, laws, regulations and internal policies, we also acknowledge that these standards, laws, regulations and policies do not govern all types of behaviour.
As a result, we also have a code of conduct for all PwC people and firms. This code is based on our values and it takes them to the next level—demonstrating our values in action. The code also provides a frame of reference for PwC firms to establish more specific supplements to address territorial issues.
