Our purpose and values

Building trust and delivering sustainable outcomes
in businesses and society.

We are purpose-led and values-driven

A firm with purpose depends on people with purpose. PwC’s community of solvers is 65,000 people strong, representing different races, ethnicities, genders, backgrounds, religions and beliefs. But together, we’re one firm united by our purpose and values.

If you ask any of us what our purpose is, the answer is always the same: to build trust in society and solve important problems. By doing this, we aim to make a meaningful difference in the world.

We provide equitable experiences within our firm

Our investments in the future start with our people. That’s why we have tangible short-term and long-term goals and aspirations to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization and hold us accountable. It’s also why we’re committed to sustainable change rooted in new approaches to recruitment and time-based actions that will shift the makeup of our firm.

We enable a more sustainable and equitable planet

Given the urgent crisis of climate change, our environmental strategy reaches across our business operations and all our stakeholders with a focus on carbon reduction and environmental sustainability. In addition to the actions we’re taking within the firm, and as a leader in environmental coalitions, we’re empowering our people to be environmental champions in their local communities.

Our values

Our values define who we are. Through the actions we take and the choices we make, we aim to make a meaningful difference in the world, for our clients, and for our people. The New Equation is our strategy for conducting ourselves in a way that better reflects the interests of our clients, our people, our firm and our communities. These values underpin our governance structure, our systems and processes to help drive quality, transparency, ethical behavior, accountability and more.

Our FY22 Purpose and Inclusion Report

Transparency lies at the heart of trust, and our Purpose and Inclusion Report aims to provide just that: the work we’re doing, how much we are achieving and where we want to continue advancing progress. It offers metrics on our commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as our commitments to social responsibility, the environment, and our own governance. It shows too that when we bring our people, capabilities and technology together in line with these commitments, we’re not only helping our clients build trust and deliver sustained outcomes, we’re also bringing our purpose to life.
