Sustainability Report 2018 and 2019

Building trust in society and solving important problems.

 

Our world is changing. Worldwide challenges shaped by the megatrends that affect us all in each aspect of our life, make the future harder to predict. Immediate actions are needed, especially from the business world, so as to shield prosperity and create a sustainable future.

In PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems in all 157 countries we operate in. To this end, our Corporate Responsibility (CR) strategy is critical.

Our Corporate Responsibility programme in PwC Greece evolves around 4 areas of focus: Responsible business, People, workplace and diversity, Community engagement and Environmental stewardship where we have significant results to showcase in this report.

In the following report you will read about our CR efforts that took place in FY2018 and FY2019. This is our first GRI compliant report and I am grateful that our initiatives are embraced by our people whose contribution is significant in making a difference and creating a sustainable future in this fast-changing landscape.

Our Corporate Responsibility Strategy

Our approach

Our most significant societal impact comes from the work we do every day supporting our clients across the globe. We believe in sharing PwC’s greatest asset – the skills, knowledge and talent of our people – to build trust, drive change and support the development of communities and society. We focus on education, building the capacity of NGOs and supporting social and micro enterprises.

Our ambition is to invest in the future and growth of 15 million people, NGOs and social and micro enterprises all over the world, in order to help them maximise their potential by 2022. We also seek to be responsive and responsible for the impact our work has on people and the planet.

The Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the 193 United Nations (UN) member states, are 17 goals which address economic, environmental and social impacts, and are designed to form a blueprint for good growth by 2030.

PwC is a proud signatory to the UN Global Compact since 2002 and is committed to its mission to support companies to operate responsibly in line with the ten principles and take strategic action in advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
