Managing our footprint and beyond
Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing our world today. It’s in the interests of everyone that we see systemic change that averts climate catastrophe and unlocks the potential of green growth. At PwC, we believe the business community has a key role to play in making that happen. And we’re determined to play our part.
To be able to systematically reduce our impact on the climate in Switzerland, we are calculating, controlling and monitoring our carbon footprint. In 2019, we introduced a new garbage and recycling system in our offices which allows us to reduce plastics to a minimum. We offset all our carbon emissions we produce by our business-related air travel and want to use 100% renewable electricity (RE100) by FY22. We focus on maximum energy efficiency not only in new buildings, but also with building refurbishments. Our working places are designed in a way that enhances creativity, and we do our best to recycle discarded IT and office materials.
In September 2020 we were raising our climate ambition, by making a worldwide science-based commitment to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
