The 2020s are a pivotal decade for our planet. Both the climate emergency and rising nature loss are increasingly front of mind for our people and our clients. We’ve seen the ‘climate debate’ move rapidly to ‘climate action’, with major new commitments by both public and private sector to achieving Net Zero emissions well before 2050. The need for rapid, extraordinary change to tackle the climate and environmental crisis is greater than ever.

Sustainability is fast becoming mainstream and acting responsibly is no longer a choice - it’s a business imperative.

Climate change has soared up the CEO agenda as leaders are seeing the impact on business, from assets and investments to products and jobs.

CEO’s are facing pressure from consumers to step up and play their part, and to integrate Environmental, Social and Governance considerations into their financial and corporate strategies.

Simply put - now is the time to act.

At PwC we want to help our clients innovate and deliver practical solutions that deliver positive impact. Using our cross-team expertise, we can align your sustainability priorities with your business purpose and set targets to drive and measure success.

Our legacy in this area is strong. With deep expertise and trusted partnerships, we believe we stand apart from others in the field. We’re helping to change the conversation so that instead of just seeing sustainability challenges as a risk, businesses also see them as an opportunity. We want to help you through this journey, putting sustainability and climate change at the heart of your business strategy.

As a firm, we have taken the challenge seriously, reducing our carbon footprint and offsetting so we've been carbon neutral in our UK operations since 2007. Overall what we do for our clients and for our business is underpinned by our firm’s purpose: to build trust in society and solve important problems. We are firmly committed to making the world a more sustainable place - not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s good for business.
