“A net zero world is within reach. Getting there will take innovation, hard work, collaboration and bold thinking but the benefits will be immense. The business community has a responsibility to act and we are determined to play our part, not just in our own operations and supply chain, but also in the way we advise and support our clients to create a sustainable world for future generations.”

Reducing our climate impact and accelerating the transition to a low carbon world

We are seeing the impacts of climate change all around us. The devastation caused in many places by the most severe flooding, the most sustained heatwaves and longest droughts experienced in recent history - these are now the stories in our daily news. 

That devastation is severely disrupting lives, livelihoods and economies. Governments, businesses and societies need to better understand the risks that we are facing, and need to adapt to the change we know is already unavoidable. But those risks also underline the urgent need for us to work together to accelerate the decarbonisation of our economies in order to reach net zero by 2050 and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

At PwC, we are working to decarbonise our business and adapt to the impacts of climate change. This means setting clear targets, creating practical plans that achieve real results, and collaborating with other organisations in the broader ecosystem to support the net zero transition.

Our focus

PwC is committed to a net zero pathway and has set near-term science based targets for reducing its emissions in line with a 1.5 degree climate scenario. The PwC network will also work with its clients to support their efforts and contribute to public policy developments in support of net zero. To mitigate its impacts today, PwC will offset its emissions through high-quality carbon credits, transitioning to 100% carbon removals by FY30.

The loss of nature and biodiversity pose a direct threat to human well-being and economic activities. We rely on nature for services such as clean water and air, fertile soils for food, pest and disease regulation, and carbon sequestration. We’re working to better understand our own impacts, and we’re helping to develop frameworks that will underpin a nature-positive world.
