We respect the environment and are committed to understanding and reducing our impact on the world - starting with our own footprint through to working with our clients and advocating for change through minimising the negative environmental impact, educating our people and developing policies to reduce our carbon footprint. We organise interactive activities regularly to promote environmental awareness throughout the year.
Since June 2018, PwC Singapore has sourced 100% renewable energy for our electricity consumption and offset 100% GHG emissions from air travel.
Across our network, we commit to reducing our total carbon emissions by 50% in absolute terms (scope 1, 2 and 3) by 2030 (against a 2019 baseline). To achieve this, we will work closely with our clients, suppliers, internal operations and our people. We firmly believe in our pivotal role as a business community to combat climate change, conserve our ecosystems and reduce our carbon footprint.
PwC Singapore's Ecological week 2021 introduced a series of activities to our people to learn about the connections between environmental sustainability, climate change and human lives as well as how they can reduce their lifestyle footprints through their daily actions, in view of our firm's #netzero commitment. The weeklong series of activities included building solar lights for children in Cambodia to our people pledging their individual actions towards climate change, and the participation in various webinars to raise awareness of the many possibilities surrounding the sustainability space.
Our people challenged themselves to eat a plant based diet for 7 days, 15 days or 31 days in the month of January in a collective effort to take climate action and protect natural habitats.
Since 2009, PwC firms all around the world have joined this global movement to raise awareness of sustainability issues and reduce our energy consumption.
