Building trust in society and solving problems is at the heart of everything we do
PwC’s social impact strategy is all about how we can harness the power of our skills, expertise and networks to deliver on our purpose to build trust in society and solve important problems.
Australia is facing new and growing social challenges like unemployment and underemployment, youth suicide and Indigenous incarceration. It’s more important than ever that business takes a leading role in helping to address the big challenges and opportunities in our society.
This applies both to PwC as a business, and to each of us as a community of 7,000 individuals. Every day our people demonstrate their passion for social causes through volunteering, mentoring and working with charities and not-for-profits. To meet the new and growing challenges facing us as a society, we must do even more. We want to improve social outcomes by facilitating cross-sector collaboration between business, government and the community in order to influence the systems that underpin them and enhance opportunities for our society.
"For PwC social impact isn’t discretionary. It is not only the sum of our impacts on communities, people and the environment. It’s also about having a higher purpose, and hopefully making a positive difference by lending our expertise to help address the big challenges and opportunities facing our nation."
