US Corporate Responsibility Report 2011

At a glance

At PwC US our Corporate Responsibility strategy focuses on three societal issues (or cause areas): youth education, climate change, and social inclusion. These act as our guiding principles that focus our actions and serve as a consistent global framework to organize our expanding efforts. This is the executive summary to our latest full report, which uses the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Guidelines. We are reporting at a self-checked application level of B. For more on our CR strategy, refer to our 2011 CR report and our 2012 CR report update. In addition, we encourage you to read the most recent FY13 CR report.

Delivering value for our clients… taking care of our people… strengthening our communities… managing our environmental footprint. These commitments help us to create value and growth while enabling our people to do great things, both within the firm and within society as a whole.

Our FY11 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.

  • Beyond the responsibility we have to each and every client, we play an important role in the greater marketplace and have an opportunity to contribute to the common good.
  • Our professionals are at the heart of our business strategy and success as we recruit top talent with a focus on diversity and inclusion.
  • Our people care about the communities in which they live and work, and this culture is a distinctive point of pride at PwC.
  • We view environmental stewardship as critical to our communities and to those who work within them, including our partners and staff.
