Sep 18, 2020

 

PwC has pledged to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. The commitment includes supporting its clients to reduce their emissions, as well as reducing those from the PwC network’s operations and suppliers.

PwC plans to

  • decarbonise its operations, including its travel footprint
  • invest in carbon removal projects to neutralise its remaining climate impact
  • engage its suppliers to tackle their climate impact
  • work with its clients to support their efforts to make a net-zero future a reality for all
  • contribute to public policy developments in support of net-zero at national, regional and global levels.

Bob Moritz, Global Chairman of the PwC network, said: 

“Businesses and economies must evolve quickly to address the significant challenges facing our societies and our planet. Whether you look at this through the lens of human need or from a capital allocation perspective, it is in the interests of everyone that we see systemic change that averts climate catastrophe and unlocks the potential of green growth.”

“A net zero world is within reach. Getting there will take innovation, hard work, collaboration and bold thinking but the benefits will be immense. The business community has a responsibility to act and we are determined to play our part, not just in our own operations and supply chain, but also in the way we advise and support our clients to create a sustainable world for future generations.”
