Greenhouse gas emissions

Our approach

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions represent the most material direct environmental impact of operating our business. We have a consistent strategic approach to measuring our GHG emissions across China and Hong Kong, allowing a clear picture of our emissions profile to be monitored. We seek to reduce our emissions in two ways: through infrastructure and equipment upgrades and improvements, and by engaging our people in more environmentally responsible behaviours.

Since FY11 (our baseline year) we have been measuring and managing our carbon footprint in accordance with the WRI/WBCSD Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. Detailed information about our approach is available in the PwC China and Hong Kong GHG Reporting Manual and Criteria.

Assurance approach

As a firm that provides audit and assurance services, we recognise the pivotal role that auditing can play in not only ensuring the reliability and
credibility of data, but also in the learning and continual improvement that is the result of audit processes. For both of these reasons, we have our GHG data for China and Hong Kong audited in accordance to ISO-14064-1 standard. Please see our PwC China and Hong Kong GHG Reporting Manual and Criteria to learn more about our approach.
