PwC Singapore’s annual Sustainability Report 2021 presents the key aspects of our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategies and policies, covering our performance for the financial year ended 30 June 2021. The report, written in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Standards (GRI Standards), shares what we have done as a firm to build trust and deliver sustained outcomes for our people, clients, community and the environment in FY21.
“Our people are our biggest success factor and it is vital that we create a safe, inclusive and supportive environment for them - one which empowers them to be well mentally, physically, socially, emotionally and financially. As we transition to endemic living, it is important that we continue to help our people remain resilient while ensuring that they have meaningful and sustainable careers.”
PwC Singapore believes in bringing together the perspectives of individuals from different backgrounds, preferences, abilities and beliefs to help create better solutions and sustained outcomes for our clients and communities. We believe in building a culture of holistic wellness and inclusivity that starts at the leadership level. Our leaders have spearheaded these and empowered our people to stay agile and adaptable - much needed to navigate this uncharted environment. The firm is committed to supporting our people in building rewarding careers and achieving their full potential.
