A growing trust gap between governments, businesses and society is forcing policymakers, regulators and elected officials to listen to what people care about most. More and more, they want societal issues to be addressed – everything from cybersecurity and technology innovation, to ESG commitments and supporting equitable workforces. At PwC, we solve the challenges of tomorrow through The New Equation, where trust underpins everything we do and everything our society is built upon. We are engaging in the ongoing debates on important developments on the public policy agenda.
At PwC, audit quality is a top priority. To achieve our purpose and deliver quality in our audits, we harness the power of our people and technology to support our clients in building trust and delivering outcomes for their businesses. We continue to invest in and reimagine our system of quality management, using data and technology to transform our risk-based approach and to be responsive to developments in the auditing environment and regulatory landscape.
We understand the heightened role of ESG factors in today's society, from our people, our clients and our communities. In a rapidly evolving ESG reporting landscape, we help companies face new pressure to measure, disclose and improve on ESG-related issues. We also take action inside and outside of our firm to enhance our commitments as a responsible business leader, particularly in underserved communities, while managing our environmental footprint to create a more equitable society.
The challenge now facing governments and the private sector is to work together to create a more sustainable, inclusive society; in part, this can be achieved through the creation of good jobs and by providing people with the requisite education and skills training needed to succeed. Inside and outside of PwC, we are using our collective skills to foster a culture of belonging, promote digital inclusion and narrow the opportunity gap.
