Our strategy depends on combining human ingenuity, capability, and experience with advanced technology to help our clients succeed on two of their biggest challenges: achieving sustained outcomes and building trust. Here are a few of the ways we’ve delivered on our strategy this year, growing the power of our human-led, tech-enabled community of solvers to help clients meet some of their toughest challenges:

Invested across our network to strengthen our capabilities to deliver sustained outcomes for clients


Ongoing investment in audit quality


Upskilled 49% of our workforce on sustainability, a defining challenge of this century


Grew our 50+ worldwide Acceleration Centres, increasing headcount by 38% and opening new Centre spaces in Cairo, Johannesburg and Mumbai

Rolled out AI technology to our entire legal practice in 100+ countries as part of a strategic alliance with AI company Harvey


Made 17 acquisitions in areas from cloud to sustainability to cybersecurity


Announced new strategic collaboration with Microsoft and Icertis to provide C-suites with powerful, innovative AI-driven tools


Launched our Centre for Nature Positive Business to expand our capabilities and expertise across our network in areas from biodiversity to regenerative agriculture

For example, employees are now invited to voluntarily disclose their disability as a core demographic in our Global People Survey in 51 countries, up from 19 last year.

Our impact

Reporting our impact on society

We believe strongly in the value of robust disclosures of companies’ impacts on society. We supported the World Economic Forum to develop its Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics, a rigorous way for companies to measure their true impact on the people and the planet. We were an early adopter of the metrics, and you can see our latest report here. We believe the Metrics heighten transparency and accountability, helping to build stronger communities and a healthier environment.

We are pleased to share many of the report highlights here in the Global Annual Review, from our 800,000+ volunteering hours to our progress on our net zero commitments.  

Our Net Zero commitments

We are on track to reach our commitments to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions with 2030 goals. In addition, from 2023, we will offset scope 1, 2 and scope 3 business travel in all territories.


50% absolute reduction in scope 1 & 2 greenhouse gas emissions by FY30 from a FY19 baseline


renewable electricity used in all our territories by FY30 (already over 90%)


of our purchased goods and services suppliers (by emissions) to set science-based targets to reduce their own climate impact by FY25


absolute reduction in scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions from business travel by FY30 from a FY19 baseline

2023 PwC Network Environment Report

The 2023 PwC Network Environment Report covers how we are executing our sustainability strategy, including: 

  • Evolving our services to help our clients address the challenges of climate change
  • Upskilling our 360,000+ strong community of solvers so they can support our clients as impactfully as possible to address sustainability issues
  • Reducing our business’s impact through decarbonising our delivery model and working to understand our impacts on nature
  • Building greater business resilience by understanding and adapting to the physical risks from climate change we identified last year

Our humanitarian work

The Global Office for Humanitarian Affairs at PwC (GOHA) leverages PwC’s skills and resources to strategically respond to emerging humanitarian needs and protracted humanitarian crises. Since 2018, GOHA has been partnering with local and global institutions to support vulnerable communities across healthcare, livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) needs, and emergency response, with a view to build lasting resilience in affected communities and local responders. In addition, many PwC member firms undertake humanitarian work, both in their local communities and beyond.


Since 2018, GOHA has consistently collaborated with Health and Education for All (HAEFA) at multiple levels to provide free health services to Rohingya refugees and local communities in the world's largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, serving more than 240,000 patient visits to date, exhibiting our sustained assistance to the crisis — a model we hope the private sector will emulate


GOHA, in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), supported the expansion and refurbishment of a Primary Health Care Centre (PHCC) in Kawergosk, Kurdistan Region of Iraq. From July 2022 to June 2023, the PHCC has provided nearly 46,000 consultations to Syrian refugees and Iraqi displaced communities and host populations living in Kawergosk town and surrounding areas.

Afghanistan and Tajikistan

Afghanistan continues to face one of the biggest humanitarian crises in the world with two-thirds of its population in need of humanitarian assistance. GOHA deployed 100 shelters for healthcare and humanitarian services by the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and other regions, recording more than 180,000 patient footfalls.


GOHA collaborated with Creative Space Beirut (CSB), a social enterprise providing free design education to talented youth from marginalised communities, to support the livelihoods of 20+ refugees and Lebanese community members, who were engaged to design and produce WHO guideline based masks. 

Syria and Türkiye

In response to the devastating 2023 Türkiye-Syria earthquake, GOHA will be supporting the establishment and operation of an internally displaced people’s camp by WATAN in Idlib, Northwest Syria, to provide accommodation for vulnerable families. In Türkiye, GOHA is supporting the Turkish Red Crescent with mobile child-friendly spaces to provide comprehensive support and protection for young people and their families in affected areas.


The PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. contributed US$300,000 to CARE, Save the Children and International Medical Corps in support of immediate and long-term response efforts in the aftermath of monsoon floods.


PwC people and firms around the world have offered shelter to Ukrainians and provided in-kind and monetary donations totalling more than US$5 million. PwC Central and Eastern Europe established a foundation in Ukraine and a network taskforce has been set up to aid the long-term rebuilding of the country.

South Africa

PwC South Africa is growing the TechnoGirl programme, which provides young women with access to STEM skills and employment opportunities, in collaboration with UNICEF in support of Generation Unlimited.

Our work on New world. New skills.

We are collaborating with UNICEF in support of Generation Unlimited to support their mission to help 1.8 billion young people transition from school to work by 2030. 

We are a founding partner of the World Economic Forum’s Reskilling Revolution programme, which aims to catalyse multiple coalitions to provide 1 billion people with better education, skills and jobs by 2030.

Our New world. New skills. work spans the globe:


Through its collaboration with Girls E-Mentorship (GEM), PwC Canada staff use their skills, experience and support to empower young women and support their upskilling and future career pathways. PwC Canada has hosted enrichment opportunities for mentees and events to raise awareness of GEM’s mission.

Middle East

Launched by PwC Middle East, the Digital Heroes programme aims to support refugees by providing in-demand digital skills and resources to support their journey to employment and further academic opportunities. 

South Africa

PwC South Africa's Youth Engaged Programme (YEP) aims to make a tangible impact on youth unemployment in South Africa by empowering and supporting youth so that they are well-equipped to enter the workforce.
