PwC is recognised as a global leader in professional services, working with many of the world’s most well-known organisations in countries around the world. As the opportunities and challenges we all see get bigger and more complex, we continue to adapt. But as we evolve as a business, what must drive everything we do is our collective and individual commitment to the PwC Purpose and our values -- the foundations of our network.
With over 200,000 of us working across more than 150 countries, we each have a role to play in making a real difference for our clients, the capital markets, our teams, our communities, and our broader stakeholders. We have a responsibility to understand why we do the things we do through our Purpose, what we focus on through our strategy, and how we work together through our values, behaviours, and conduct.
The Code of Conduct is based on the PwC Purpose and a core set of shared values, and sets out a common framework around how we are expected to behave and to do the right thing. Knowing, understanding, and living the Code, is a fundamental part of who we are as PwC professionals, and what we stand for. Whether we are working with PwC people or others, we depend on each other to be mindful of our ethical responsibilities.
Our Purpose and values are the foundation of our success. We exist to build trust and solve important problems, and our values help us deliver on that Purpose.
This Code underpins our ability to behave in a manner consistent with our values.
