Our purpose and values

Our values define who we are, what we stand for and how we behave

While we come from different backgrounds and cultures, our values are what we have in common. They guide how we work with our clients and each other, inform the type of work we do, and hold us accountable to do our best. They govern our actions and determine our success.

Our values help us work towards our purpose of building trust in society and solving important problems.

The trust that our clients, communities and our people place in PwC, and our high standards of ethical behaviour, are fundamental to everything we do. Our values underpin our Code of Conduct which is our frame of reference for the decisions we make every day. It's how we do business.
