At PwC we believe in being ‘part of it’: the global conversation and movement towards responsible business practices that creates positive change in the world. We’re focusing on four areas where we can make relevant and significant contributions.
Creating value in the marketplace by reflecting CR risks and opportunities in our core services, and educating our people on the CR issues our clients face today. Creating value for business and our communities in terms of ethics, integrity and trust, and using our core skills to help address issues central to CR today.
Creating value for our people and our clients by promoting diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion where people can be themselves, give their best and grow professionally and personally.
Creating socio-economic value by using our skills and experience to help local communities and focusing on capacity-building and education.
Creating value for our business and our communities by respecting the environment, understanding and reducing our impact on the world around us, and implementing an environmental policy.
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:
Our leadership ladders set minimum standards and provide guidance on how PwC firms achieve leadership in corporate responsibility. Each of the four steps of the ladder considers four dimensions: behaviour change; strategy and policy; measurement and engagement; and impact assessment.
These aims form the core of our 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.
