Tailored transformation, not plug-and-play

The opportunity to reach net zero by 2050 is here. This complex challenge needs an intelligent and nuanced approach. Our community of solvers and experts tailor a bespoke plan for every organisation we work with, based on our proven methodology and technology tools. This custom-build technique ensures that your decarbonisation strategy and delivery is integrated with wider business priorities and challenges. This creates an organisation ecosystem where commercial success is optimised, not compromised.

What does working with us look like?

We’ll guide you through five phases, adapted to the pace and scale of your ambition: understanding your current emissions, developing a strategy to reduce them, distilling the strategy into a practical transformation roadmap, then transforming your organisation, and reporting your progress.

We’ve devised a decarbonisation pathway that aligns our specialist skills with the delivery excellence we’re known for, tailored to your organisation at a granular level.

Take a deeper dive into each stage:

Maturity and baselining

An assessment of existing net zero initiatives and capabilities to understand the implications of net zero for a company’s growth strategy and operating model. Also includes an assessment of the organisation’s emissions. Both are critical to effectively engaging stakeholders and for making the strategic case for action.

Strategy development

The creation of a bespoke net zero strategy, as part of a wider commercial strategy. This includes developing a holistic net zero vision, ambition and target; identifying the costed decarbonisation levers; and developing an action focused enterprise wide strategy bringing all these together.

Transformation roadmap

The development of a bespoke roadmap which presents the net zero journey and sets the overall approach across levers to reduce emissions over the short, medium and long-term. It maps out the key activities required, cross-business workstreams for each; ownership and a clear timeline for each, and a robust governance structure, with clearly defined allocated members, roles and responsibilities to oversee the successful implementation of the whole transformation programme.

Transformation implementation

This involves executing on the roadmap by transforming the organisation’s operations to deliver on the net zero strategy. This can include all aspects of the business or dive deep into a few including supply chain and procurement, operations and logistics, commercial approach, culture, data and technology, and back office function transformation.

Sustainability reporting

This stage comprises an assessment of your current ESG data and industry-specific support to meet disclosure regulations. This is followed by agile delivery through our in-house team to enable high quality net zero reporting - utilising our data and tech expertise.

The credible, trusted net zero advisors

Our integrated offering combines a global network of net zero specialists, deep industry expertise, and top-calibre technology alliances. Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems - principles you will see reflected in our people, who believe in the value decarbonisation will bring to communities and business.

Unlike vendors who sell strategy with no integration, or technology without implementation, we work holistically with organisations to define your net zero transformation approach and integrate it with your existing technology, projects and processes.

As one of the first professional services firms to obtain an SBTi-approved 1.5°C target across our value chain, our principles are also alive in our own actions. We have been named a global leader in ESG business services by Verdantix and been awarded ‘Platinum’ rating by Ecovadis, which assesses the sustainability performance of suppliers.

“PwC’s support has been instrumental in helping us advance towards our net zero journey, through the tools, methodologies and operational implementation skills required to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and identify cost savings in our operations. PwC has been a true partner, with a real passion for helping us achieve our ambitious goals.”
