06 A positive impact on society

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 drive change and build trust.

Our ambition is to invest in the future and growth of 15 million people, NGOs and social and micro enterprises 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 and have announced a new global commitment to tackle carbon emissions.

07 Informing the debate on audit quality

Delivering audits of the highest quality is core to our purpose. This commitment to quality is core to our strategy, the focus of which is to strengthen trust and transparency in our clients, the capital markets and wider society. To help our member firms put this strategy into effect, the PwC network has established clear objectives around audit quality that they must strive to meet, as well as various forms of support.

08 Organisation and structure

Being open about how the PwC network is organised and governed, and the high standards that we expect all PwC firms to follow, is important to us.
