Problem solving for a sustainable future
ESG isn’t about ticking a box. It’s about making a difference - for the world and for your business. It’s about creating sustained outcomes for environmental and societal good. And It's about governing your business responsibly and inclusively to build long term resilience.
PwC's passionate community of solvers is ready to help you turn business as usual into new ways of thinking and doing, while building trust today to secure a sustainable future. We are ready to drive the ESG revolution with you.
Our Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainability Excellence will play a critical role in PwC’s ESG across the region, where we will focus on supporting organisations in areas such as:
Our Centre for Sustainability Excellence is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board, and it will be powered from the city state to leverage the strong climate ambition underlined by the Singapore Green Plan 2030, the country’s close connectivity with the diverse economies across Asia Pacific, and its growing prominence as a regional sustainability hub.
It's time to take action. Creating impact through ESG means putting a tangible, practical plan in place. It should touch every part of every business - from investment to sustainable innovation. When fully embedded in your business from strategy to reporting, tax to legal, HR to M&A, you’re ready to mitigate potential ESG related risk as well as capture the right opportunities.
Responsibility. Sustainability. Diversity. These are the bywords of today’s businesses. But how can you be sure you measure up to them? Build a better, and transparently brighter future, earning greater trust for generations to come. Lead with proven approaches and smart technologies that infuse ESG principles throughout your business - from finance and tax to people and value chains.
The groundwork to deliver on our mission has already started, for example, with these developments in Singapore:
In support of the Singapore Green Plan 2030, we have launched the Singapore Low Carbon Network (SLCN), a platform that aims to bring together enterprises and organisations across Singapore with ambitions to decarbonise. The SLCN serves to facilitate dialogue and learning between both public and private sectors, and aims to advance the sharing of best practices and insights on key carbon measurement and decarbonisation topics based on the member organisations’ needs.
If you’re interested in joining the SLCN and would like to learn more about it, reach out to our contacts below.
In addition to welcoming new senior talent in growing our ESG leadership, we have kick-started our ESG upskilling programme for all 3,500 of our people, starting with our ESG Essentials curriculum to embed “ESG consciousness” in our DNA. This is part of our worldwide effort to upskill all our people in ESG knowledge. Supplementing the ESG Essentials is an eight-module ESG Upskilling Programme developed by our Sustainability and Climate Change practice for our partners and staff. Specialised training customised for the different lines of services will be subsequently rolled out as we continue to equip our people with further skills and knowledge to better help clients pivot towards a sustainable future by integrating ESG into their strategies, operations, and reporting.
Our strength as a global network enables us to tap into our regional and global resources, talent, insights and innovations to collectively problem solve. The CSE is a part of our US$12 billion global commitment under our global strategy, The New Equation, which focuses on bringing together unique combinations of people, powered by technology, to help organisations build trust with stakeholders and deliver sustained outcomes.
In October 2021, Enterprise Singapore launched the Enterprise Sustainability Programme (ESP) to support Singapore businesses on sustainability initiatives and to capture new opportunities in the green economy. In line with the CSE’s focus of upskilling and capacity building, we are one of the partners working with Enterprise Singapore under the ESP to develop and deliver subsidised training workshops. This will help enterprises to build greater awareness and knowledge of sustainability. More details of the workshops will be released at a later date.
New technology, data and funding should be adopted and deployed to meet sustainability goals.
