PwC Australia helps organisations and individuals create the value they’re looking for. We are a member firm of the PwC network, made up of 161,718 people who are committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory, tax & legal and private clients services.

PwC is one of Australia’s leading professional services firms, bringing the power of our global network of firms to help Australian businesses, not-for-profit organisations and governments assess their performance and improve the way they work. Having grown from a one-man Melbourne accountancy practice in 1874 to the worldwide merger of Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand in 1998, PwC Australia now employs more than 6,000 people.

Our vision

To realise and discover the potential of…

PwC people from every part of our business worked together to define what inspires us, what’s important to us, and what reflects our people and culture. We’re inspired by potential – for individuals, teams, clients, communities, everyone – captured in our vision “to realise and discover the potential of…” Realising is about fulfilling existing potential. Discovering is about finding new potential in new stuff, bold ideas, exploration and pushing ourselves beyond where we have been before.

While our vision invites us to consider who we can be, our firm values reflect who we are, and they should be evident in everything we do.

More information about our values can be found on our website

Employee Giving

pwc1

We want to actively support our people’s passions and create a culture of care within our firm.

PwC People Giving facilitates payroll deductions for our people so that they can support and donate to charity. The firm matches these contributions on a dollar-for-dollar basis to a capped amount each year.

Staff Volunteering

Through our volunteering and mentoring programs PwC is tapping into our most precious resource – our people – to effect social change. On the way, we are helping them, and the people they work with, to develop as responsible leaders, and gain a new perspective on the world and their place in it.

Volunteering provides our people with the opportunity to spend one work day each year to undertake either:

  • Skilled volunteering – where our people utilise core skills such as mentoring, communications, marketing, technology advice, reviewing business plans, IT or event management.
  • Unskilled volunteering involves hands-on, team-based volunteering in the community such as tree planting, sorting Christmas toys & food hampers, working bees.

Capacity Building – Delivering value by sharing our expertise

Our capacity building program provides charities with access to the same services we offer clients. We call it ‘capacity building’ rather than ‘pro bono’ to reflect how it uses our skills and expertise to grow an organisation’s capacity to deliver their strategic priorities.

Sponsorships

PwC has a strong commitment to investing in the common wealth of the communities in which we work. One way we do this is by choosing to sponsor organisations and events which provide opportunities to further strengthen our economic, cultural, social and sporting foundations.

You can find out more here

We recognise the impact of our buying decisions on our environmental, social and economic performance. We work with our suppliers to assess their approach to sustainability, and influence and enable them to improve their performance through our SSCM policy and questionnaire.

Environment

PwC Australia has a long-held commitment to managing our impact on the environment. We strive to be environmentally responsible, and grow environmental intelligence more broadly.

We are the first firm to; publish Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Accounts, be NCOS (National Carbon Offset Standard) certified, participate in the Corporate Responsibility Index and integrate corporate responsibility into our annual review. In addition, our GHG accounts are third party assured every second year, in line with NCOS requirements.

In 2008 we were the first professional services firm to become carbon neutral and we have continued with this commitment. We achieved carbon neutrality through three key steps:

  1. reducing our impact;
  2. purchasing accredited NCOS certified carbon offsets for any residual emissions.
  3. commitment and engagement of our people
