PwC Australia has a long-held commitment to managing our impact on the environment.
PwC globally is a proud member of the RE 100 initiative with a commitment to source 100% of the firm's electricity from renewables by 2050.
We are already on the way to achieving our target of 70% by 2022.
In 2008, PwC Australia was the first Australian professional services firm to become carbon neutral and we are proud to continue this commitment.
PwC Australia’s biggest carbon impacts are from our business travel and the energy we use to power our offices. Together, these activities account for 90.2% of our carbon footprint.
In FY19, we produced 45,675 tonnes of CO2e. To take responsibility for our unavoidable emissions, we purchase carbon offsets. These offsets support projects around Australia and the world that reduce or remove carbon from the atmosphere.
This ongoing commitment is delivered through Climate Active. The certification is awarded to businesses and organisations that have credibly reached a state of achieving net zero emissions, otherwise known as carbon neutrality.

PwC has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2002 and the firm aligns our strategy with its principals including those on the environment. Find out more about our commitments to the UN Global compact here:
