What we do matters. Why we do it matters more.
We care equally about the work we do with our clients and investing in our employees, supporting our communities, protecting the environment and dealing fairly and ethically with suppliers. And we know that our communities continue to face a growing gap between those who have access to opportunity, and those who do not. This is a clear indication that we should do more, inside and outside of our firm. We approach this challenge the same way we do our client work - by identifying the root issue and executing solutions for sustainable impact. Yes, we are a business, but we are also in the business of contributing to society and helping others thrive.
“It’s time for businesses to step up. We have a critical role to play in addressing some of the biggest issues facing our society. We can and must use our scale and our resources to give back and to uplift our communities to help ensure equity of opportunity. It’s more than being purpose-led; it’s our responsibility.”
With the release of our FY21 Purpose Report you can learn more about PwC’s commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion; operating responsibly in sustainable ways; and driving a human-led, tech-powered approach.
FY21 Purpose Report
Emerging technologies and shifts in demographics are changing the way we work. Through Access Your Potential, we’re mentoring and helping to equip Black and Latinx students with the digital and career skills needed to thrive in tomorrow’s workforce.
The most complex societal issues affect businesses and communities alike. That's why, through our Skills for Society pro bono program, PwC provides our 55,000 employees with paid time to help nonprofits digitally transform and tackle operational challenges in order to accelerate their potential, deliver on their purpose and address social injustice.
Climate change and its related impacts, such as extreme weather events and poor air quality, pose great risks to us all, but especially to vulnerable communities. Because of this, it is vital we do our part to help tackle the causes of climate change and other forms of environmental degradation. That's why we have made a global commitment to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
PwC values the unique experiences and perspectives each individual brings to the table. We support an inclusive environment to help our people reach their potential and better solve important problems.
As people and together as a firm, we are committed to helping others thrive. To support the essential needs nonprofits provide for underserved communities, we leverage firm systems and technology to make it as easy and transparent as possible for PwC professionals to donate to causes that matter to them throughout the year, and especially during key moments.
In the Fall of 2020, we co-founded and launched CEO Action for Racial Equity, a Fellowship dedicated to advancing racial equity for the Black community through public policy. Using CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion - the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workforce - as a platform, our mission is clear: To identify, develop and promote scalable and sustainable public policies and corporate engagement strategies that will address systemic racism, social injustice and improve societal well-being. Join the 100+ companies using our collective experiences, skills, expertise and resources to build bridges and affect societal change.
We’re driven by our purpose — to build trust in society and solve important problems. Trust is impossible without transparency, which is why we’re committed to reporting on our progress each year.
