Organizations are facing increasing calls to be environmentally responsible while remaining accountable to their stakeholders. Practical barriers hinder the transformation to a more sustainable world. This is true for companies operating under short term commercial metrics and for the public sector where community and business interests must be carefully balanced with progress.
PwC’s Strategy& approach to low carbon and sustainability is therefore a simple and pragmatic one. We focus on helping organizations with low carbon and sustainability initiatives that are profitable, practical and tangible. In over 200 low carbon and sustainability projects in the last three years we have demonstrated our ability to unlock value for leading public and private sector clients around the world while contributing to a better environment.
In an environmentally-conscious world that focuses on short-term profit, the savings potential of less wasteful approaches is increasingly being recognized. Strategy& service offerings help organizations improve their ‘footprint’ be it focused on emissions, energy usage or resource usage, including:
While many companies have begun to understand low carbon and sustainability issues and are implementing basic footprint development and risk management practices, they have not moved to the next level. This next level typically delivers substantial value from integrating sustainability into everyday business activities. Greener sourcing, market positioning, customer segmentation and future strategies are just such opportunities.
Well developed new policies, imposed by governments or key industry players, can directly drive environmental improvement and also present opportunities for early movers to be rewarded for their foresight. Recent events around the world have demonstrated the need for evidence-based, fair and consensual policy and legislation on low carbon and sustainability — as well as efficient and effective implementation.
Our focus, for both our public and private sector clients, is on delivering tangible results, including:
Many low carbon and sustainability responses represent disruptive change. Strategy& is experienced in helping organizations identify and capture the opportunities that result from these disruptions. For example:
Many of our more established clients work with us to understand the impact of emerging ‘cleantechs’ on their industries and the risks and opportunities that they create.
