PwC’s Code of Conduct is based on the PwC Purpose (to build trust in society and solve important problems) and a core set of shared values, and sets out a common framework around how we are expected to behave and to do the right thing. This includes Speaking Up if we come across a situation that is inconsistent with the Code or our values.
Knowing, understanding, and living the Code, is a fundamental part of who we are as PwC professionals, and what we stand for. Whether we are working with PwC people or others, we depend on each other to be mindful of our ethical responsibilities.
PwC is recognised as a global leader in professional services, working with many of the world’s largest organisations. PwC is committed to operating within a framework of ethical and professional standards, laws, regulations, internal policies, and our core values. PwC is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and is committed to its 10 principles.
At PwC, we expect the same level of integrity and business conduct from our Third Parties and their personnel as we do our own people. These standards are explained in our Global Third Party Code of Conduct.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the conduct of a member of our firm, any questions about our code, or another business ethics matter, please use our confidential helpline or contact us by email.
The trust that our clients, communities and our people place in us, and in our high standards of ethical behaviour, are fundamental to everything we do. As we go about our work, it’s important we have a frame of reference for the decisions we make every day. Our Code of Conduct and Third Party Code of Conduct (the Codes) can guide us, no matter where we are or what we do. It’s how we do business.
As part of our commitment to building trust in society, this policy provides a framework for whistleblowers inside and outside the firm to make reports.
