Contributing to sustainable and thriving communities

Through community investments we can share our greatest asset - the skills, knowledge and talent of our people - to help create communities where people and business can thrive. PwC is making an impact, but no one organisation can solve these issues alone. PwC, UNICEF and Generation Unlimited are collaborating to specifically address the upskilling challenge by supporting young people around the world to develop the skills they need to engage and thrive in the digital world. The collaboration supports Generation Unlimited, a multi sector partnership aimed at helping 1.8 billion young people transition from school to work by 2030.

In Switzerland we are offering free or partially free audit and consulting services for social organisations and are running corporate volunteering programmes that fit our global ambitions. For example, our people can mentor a social entrepreneur under our SEIF mentoring scheme, or can work with our partner WiWo to spend a week in a school teaching kids about business and economics.
