Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG)

We care equally about the work we do with our clients and investing in our employees, supporting our communities, protecting the environment and dealing fairly and ethically with suppliers. And we know that our communities continue to face a growing gap between those who have access to opportunity, and those who do not. We approach this challenge the same way we do our client work - by identifying the root issue and executing solutions for sustainable impact. Yes, we are a business, but we are also in the business of contributing to society and helping others thrive.

"At no time has the need for alignment of economic growth, social progress and environmental sustainability been more important - and at no time have we been better positioned to tackle the challenge ahead. Governments and business need to adopt and adapt to the new measures of prosperity provided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”

Bob Moritz Global Chairman, PricewaterhouseCoopers International Limited

For a very long time, economies delivered effectively for societies - with people living healthier, longer and more prosperous lives. But over recent decades, there has been a steady separation of economic growth and societal progress, leaving many people behind. 

Business needs to be part of the solution. We're making change that starts with us while helping to evolve economies to once again deliver for society.
