Environmentally friendly approach

Our headquarters in the Eiffel Palace are part of Eastern Europe's most environmentally friendly office building. And another aspect of our environmental footprint we have worked to improve is transport: we support the fight against air pollution and the reduction of urban noise. We have begun using electric vehicles for business travel in the city and surroundings. We have two Nissan Leaf cars that are considered to be the world’s first mass-produced, fully electric vehicles. We charge the two vehicles with electric fast chargers in our office building's garage.

Paper reducing campaign

Me launched an internal competition in our office to encourage colleagues to reduce their paper use. Some teams reduced their consumption by 50%, and the winning team managed to improve paper use by 66%. During the competition we supported our colleagues with useful tips and digital solutions.

Who were these organisations?

WWF - Earth Hour movement

Our firm also took part in the earth hour movement, as we believe environmental protection to be a vital issue. As a result, we switched off the office building' lights and we also encouraged our staff to join the movement.

PwC continued to be a disabled-friendly workplace in 2015

PwC Hungary, in harmony with the global PwC approach, raises awareness for diversity and social integration, and as part of this encourages rehabilitation of disabled people back to work.

From 2008, in cooperation with Salva Vita Foundation, every year we welcome disabled interns, who can get familiar with our work environment during the program.

To improve this strategic cooperation, we decided to also take long-term steps to create a disabled-friendly environment in our firm.

To this end we created a project team, and with the professional help of our strategic partners, Salva Vita Foundation and RehaJob, we started a due diligence of our firm and defined the needed measures for the future, such as focus group conversations, sensitization trainings and recruitment of employees.

In December 2015 PwC was rewarded with the Disability-friendly Workplace Recognition for the 2nd time. Those who apply for this reward take on continuous improvement of their practices regarding recruitment, employment and the retention of disabled people.
