Corporate responsibility

PwC is a strong brand in our markets and we have a responsibility to show leadership, both as a business and as a community member.

Overview

PwC is committed to making a positive difference, based upon our core competencies and values.

Even before the COVID-19 crisis, pressure was building that put the world at a crossroads. Climate change, polarisation and disruptive technological change were creating unsustainable pressure on the societies, economies and ecosystems in which we all live and in which companies operate. COVID-19 has made these challenges more pressing and further raised the importance of progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Environment

Managing our footprint and beyond

We are proud to join this year’s tree planting programme with the guidance of relevant authorities from the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources - Forestry Department. This is in line with our commitment to support high-quality carbon reduction projects that not only reduce carbon emissions but also support local communities, preserve sustainable landscapes and help create renewable markets.

Environment corporate responsibility

Our tree planting exercise was held at the newly constructed Lusaka Specialist Hospital, on Wednesday 23 December 2020. We planted 100 Musikili trees, a start of more planting exercises we intend to undertake. Other selected sites include the University Teaching Hospital grounds.

PwC Zambia Associate Director, Tonderai Luwisi, invited other like-minded corporates and people in Zambia and throughout the world to take pride in giving to the environment through planting of trees.

The guest of honour Mr Elias J. Kamanga, Lusaka Province Permanent Secretary is calling on all people in the province to make time during this tree planting season to plant at least three trees per individual. Please check out our photo gallery in the link below.

Community

Contributing to sustainable and thriving communities

At PwC we strive to build trust in society and solve important problems. One of our values; PwC Cares was demonstrated by our visit to the Bethel Nursery Home with the support of one of our

PwC Alumnus. Due to Covid-19 regulations, the opportunity to interact with the children was restricted. We however donated some clothing and food supplies to the center.

We were given a tour of the new facility and it was exciting to see the new developments at the center. Please check out our photo gallery in the link below.

Inspire a career

Virtual mentorship Programme with the “Our Moon Education and other selected schools”.

Selected PwC employees and Alumni will provide career guidance talks to our moon students virtually and face to face interactions with selected schools in Lusaka, whilst observing COVID 19 requirements. Inspire a career in a child's life.

Our recent virtual mentorship programme with the Our Moon Education kicked off on 18 December 2020. It was an awesome time filled with inspiring discussions on career paths, life aspirations and laughter.

Health

Contributing to a noble cause

PwC Zambia has hosted its annual race to beat cancer at East Park Mall for the past four years.

The Race is our effort to join in the fight against cancer. It is a fundraising venture and all proceeds have been used to support the fight against cancer in Zambia.

Health corporate responsibility

The proceeds of the race to beat cancer for the first two years, a total of K162,000 was donated to the Kayula Childhood Cancer Foundation.

In December 2018, we partnered with the Cancer Diseases Hospital (CDH) to provide support on first phase of the partnership, the chemotherapy reconstitution unit was refurbished using the proceeds from our third annual race to beat cancer. The total donation amounted to k109,000. In 2019, we continued to support CHD and donated K137,160, the proceeds of the fourth race to beat cancer, which is being used as phase two of additional works done on the refurbished chemotherapy reconstitution unit.

In 2020, due to the continued covid-19 health pandemic, we had to re-organise the format of the race to beat cancer. We held a virtual fitness challenge via various social media platforms from 27 November to 6 December 2020 as our continued effort to create awareness on the fight against cancer in Zambia. A target of 3,008 kms as a collective was set, which represented the 3,008 patients attached to the CDH hospital as of October 2020. Please heck out our photo gallery in the link below.
