Our CR strategy is a central aspect to delivering our purpose. There are two core principles which underpin our approach and these are to do the right thing, and to be a catalyst for change. These are in line with PwC’s values, and guide us through our efforts to enhance our positive and minimise our negative social and environmental impacts. We are also guided by our CR ambitions for 2020. The ambitions set out clear long-term goals in community engagement, environmental stewardship and responsible business. These include:
Our local governance structure consists of a Board of Partners, Management Board, and Executive Board.
The Board of Partners is a committee of 12 elected partners, in addition to our Chairman, which has oversight over the local business and its operations. The Management and Executive Boards are comprised of the Chairman and partners appointed by the Chairman.
