Driven by our purpose and values, we are making an impact in our communities and delivering business value by helping create a more equitable society.
We are all witness to the big shifts that our society must face – the issues have become more complex, becoming intertwined with global and economic challenges. To maximize the impact that the firm can have on these sizable issues, drive greater operational efficiencies and further define our brand in the marketplace, we focus our CR efforts on three societal themes – youth education, climate change and social inclusion. And in order to succeed on our strategy, we are marshalling our resources for greater impact through our core CR commitments – Earn Your Future, pro bono, and carbon reduction. By demonstrating the collective impact of all 46,000 partners and staff, we can meaningfully impact our people, clients and communities, and demonstrate that CR is not only the right thing to do, but part of what defines who we are in every facet of what we do.
Despite shifts in our economy, the fundamental role our firm plays in the capital markets has not – and will not – change. For us, it is important to deliver quality, transparency, and integrity to the marketplace.
Our people are our firm’s greatest strength. To help them succeed, we provide opportunities for growth and encourage employees to become more engaged in all aspects of the firm, whether it’s developing innovative ideas for our business, participating in international assignments, collaborating with fellow partners, principals and staff, or volunteering in the community.
Giving back is an essential part of who we are and what we do. We provide a multitude of opportunities for our people to be engaged in community activities where they live and work. We do this through our Earn Your Future program, a five-year, $190 million investment in youth education, with a focus on financial literacy, and through our PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. where we leverage the knowledge and interests of the people of PwC to drive innovation and scale around education and have given over $23M to help our communities in times of need since 2001.
As a firm, we’re dedicated to finding tangible ways to work with our clients, suppliers, and employees to continually reduce the impact we have on the environment. Looking at our climate change risks and opportunities gives us a sound basis for prioritizing our efforts and directing them to areas that will yield the greatest improvement and meet the expectations of our people, our clients, and the communities in which we live and work.
