About this report

We continue to enhance PwC’s reporting to strengthen our disclosures and transparency about our CR approach. We have advanced our web-based delivery to improve access to our information and reinforce the interconnected nature of CR at PwC. To complement our online report, a brief executive summary is available as an iBook so that our CR information is more readily accessible to our stakeholders.


For this web-based report, we used the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Guidelines, which provide a recommended framework and indicators for reporting. We are reporting at a self-checked application level of B. More information on the GRI Guidelines and application levels is available at www.globalreporting.org.

This report is organized by our four CR areas of focus: Marketplace, People, Community, and Environment. It aims to provide insight into our CR perspective, progress, and performance, and guide readers to other relevant content on PwC.com.
