PwC Australia has a long-held commitment to managing our impact on the environment.
Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing our world today. Without convincing global action, average temperatures are predicted to increase by more than 1.5°C, a threshold at which scientists believe potentially irreversible environmental changes will occur. In many countries around the world there are increasing calls for corporate environmental responsibility and sustainability. At PwC, we’re committed to supporting a lower carbon future.

PwC Sustainability Commitments
Carbon neutral since 2008
In 2008, PwC Australia was the first Australian professional services firm to become carbon neutral and we are proud to continue to hold this certification through Climate Active today. As part of this certification, we support high-quality carbon reduction projects that not only reduce carbon emissions but also support communities, preserve sustainable landscapes and help create renewable markets.
PwC commits to net zero by 2030
PwC has announced a science-based commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. Our net zero ambition will require us to reduce our total GHG emissions by 50% in absolute terms over the next decade. We’ll achieve this by driving energy efficiency improvements in our offices and reducing the GHG emissions associated with our business travel. PwC’s commitment to net zero builds on our 2018 environment ambition to drive efficiencies, go 100% renewable, and offset 100% air travel emissions from FY19 and residual energy use by FY22. It is also an extension of our commitment to be carbon neutral, which we have continued since 2008.
