Environmental stewardship


At PwC we respect the environment and are committed to understanding and reducing our impacts. 

Our approach to environmental management is influenced by our environmental guiding principles. Our focus in recent years has been to grow internal awareness and promote environmentally responsible behaviours as well as tracking and managing our GHG emissions. 

As we continue to enhance our programme, we are evaluating new ways to address the environmental concerns raised by our stakeholders, including how to minimise our waste and enhancing our energy management. 

By 2020 our ambitions are:

  • 30% reduction in carbon emissions per capita from FY11 baseline.
  • To implement real-estate sustainability guidance across our operations in China and Hong Kong. As of 30th June, 2017 this represents 1.77 million square feet of real estate and roughly 35 buildings.
