ESG (environmental, social and governance standards)
ESG isn’t about ticking a box. It’s about making a difference - for the world and for your business. It’s about creating sustained outcomes for environmental and societal good. And governing your business responsibly and inclusively to build long-term resilience. PwC's passionate community of solvers are ready to work with you - environmentalists, sociologists, economists, strategists, technologists. We're here to help you turn business as usual into new ways of thinking and doing. Building trust today to secure a sustainable future.
Business cannot continue to overlook the consequences of climate change in the pursuit of profit or ignore the social impact of their practices. It's time to take action! Turn aspiration into a blueprint for success! Creating impact through ESG means putting a tangible, practical plan in place. It should touch every part of every business - from investment to sustainable innovation. You need to sound a clear call-to-action for your entire organisation to follow. And you need to bring your best people and smartest technology together so your business can see more, go deeper and act swiftly. Be ready to take on the biggest challenges, with the ability to flex your priorities. Stay ahead of vulnerabilities whilst creating new opportunities to shift the expected.
Leaders must tackle reporting, strategy, and transformation to holistically integrate ESG into their business.
Beyond compliance: Consumers and employees want businesses to do more on ESG.
