Our CR strategy

The Corporate Responsibility Committee

The Corporate Responsibility Committee, chaired by the PwC China and Hong Kong Operations Leader, comprises PwC China and Hong Kong's Leaders for the North, Central and South China markets; Government and Regulatory Affairs; Human Capital and Diversity & Inclusion. The Committee oversees our overall CR strategy and meets regularly to provide guidance on implementing CR policies. It also reviews the progress of CR including the PwC Foundation and the Environmental Sustainability Steering Group. The CR Committee reports periodically to the Territory Management and Executive Boards.
Global Corporate Responsibility Board (GCRB)

The GCRB comprises leaders from the largest PwC member firms, regional corporate responsibility leaders and sustainability subject matter experts. Joanne Oswin, PwC China and Hong Kong Operations Leader and CR Committee Chair, is a member of the GCRB. In keeping with best practice, the board also includes an external independent advisor. The Board comes together every quarter to provide governance, oversight, input and direction to PwC's corporate responsibility global strategy in alignment with the overall business strategy and to be the forum for alignment across the PwC network.
Our ambition for 2020

In 2015 we conducted comprehensive stakeholder engagement activities with our CR Committee, Management Board and other external stakeholders to set the longer term ambitions of our CR programme. Below are the outcomes from that process.
Responsible business

Be recognised as a leader due to the value added from embedding CR into our services. As we develop and implement the strategies and initiatives necessary to realise this, we will provide updates on our progress in our future CR reporting.
Community engagement

Help build a stronger NGO sector in China; and have 50% of our people engaged in CR.
Environmental stewardship

Implement real-estate sustainability guidance, setting requirements for all future office relocations and refurbishments.
PwC Foundation

The PwC Foundation is governed by six partners across PwC China and Hong Kong. These PwC Foundation Trustees meet regularly to oversee the Foundation's strategy, progress and use of funds. The Trustees report to the CR Committee.
Environmental Sustainability Steering Group

The Environmental Sustainability Steering Group reports to the CR Committee. It's responsible for developing and implementing programmes and initiatives aimed at reducing our operational carbon footprint and creating an environmentally conscious working culture.
