Responsible business

Ethics and Business Conduct

Our purpose, to build trust in society and solve important problems, combined with our values, provide the highest level guide for our behaviours and actions. Equally important is our infrastructure for sound governance, independence, ethics and compliance. Read more about our approach to business ethics and conduct.


Realising the potential of our people

Our people are the heart of our organisation. Over 250,000 people in 158 countries. We are committed to attracting the best people to PwC and offering them exciting career and development opportunities so they can achieve their full potential and build a rewarding career.

Every year, we ask our people across the network how they feel about working at PwC. The vast majority tell us that they are proud to work at PwC (81%).

Through a significant Be Well Work Well initiative we invest in programmes to help our people work flexibly and manage their energy and personal wellbeing. As part of this read about some of the everyday habits we’re encouraging our people to embrace. 

To have impact and serve our communities, our stakeholders and our clients, we need diverse talent. Diversity and inclusiveness are huge priorities for us around the world. Read about our diversity and inclusion journey


Working with clients

The biggest impact we make comes from the work we do every day, helping clients navigate many of the complex systems - capital markets, tax and economies - that underpin society. We help these systems function and clients to operate within them effectively.

We believe we have a responsibility to help these systems evolve so that they benefit communities and society more widely. 

In addition, our sustainability and climate change practitioners support our clients to navigate the risks and opportunities presented by sustainable development. 

Working with suppliers for positive change

At PwC, we expect the same level of integrity and business conduct from our Third Parties and their personnel as we do our own people. These standards are explained in our Global Third Party Code of Conduct. Additionally, many of our firms take action to drive positive impact through procurement, such as participating in initiatives to bring social enterprises or minority suppliers into our supply chain.
