About this report

About this report

This report is organized by our four CR areas of focus: Building Trust, Engaging our people, Impacting communities, and Managing our footprint. It aims to provide insight into our CR perspective, progress, and performance, and guide readers to other relevant content on pwc.com. To continue to advance our CR disclosure, we made significant progress in aligning our reporting with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. The G4 Guidelines, issued in May 2013, represent a substantial step forward, helping organizations focus their reporting on their most material issues. We followed the guidance for reporting in accordance with G4 at the core level, including the preparation of a materiality analysis for the development of report content and indicator selection. However, because of a small number of omissions noted in the index here, we do not claim to be reporting in accordance with G4. More information on the GRI Guidelines and application levels is available at www.globalreporting.org.

Reporting is an important way of strengthening ties with our stakeholders, and we welcome your feedback via our Contact Us page.
