Human rights and modern slavery

At PwC, we take our ethical responsibilities seriously. Our clients, and other stakeholders, are increasingly seeking greater transparency about our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance and how we address real world issues. We are seeing an increasing number of human rights abuses and incidents of modern slavery being reported around the world, and no country is immune. That’s why we believe it’s important to continue to review and strengthen our approach to human rights issues, including modern slavery, across our operations and supply chains.

Human rights

Respecting the human rights of all people is the foundation of a strong, inclusive society, and there is a clear expectation of the role of business. We believe it’s our responsibility to respect and uphold the human rights of our people and any other individuals we are in contact with, either directly or indirectly. 

Our commitment to human rights speaks to our Purpose — to build trust in society and solve important problems. We continue to embed human rights considerations into our processes and policies, and support the promotion of human rights within our sphere of influence.

Modern slavery

Modern slavery is a multi-faceted, complex issue with an immediate need for a global response. Now more than ever, business has a vital role in taking action to prevent modern slavery.

PwC Australia’s Joint Modern Slavery Statement outlines how we are identifying, monitoring and addressing the risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chains, the standards we set in our supply chain, and how we aim to enhance our approach to these risks going forward.
