Sustainability and Climate Change

Sustainability and Climate Change

In today’s fast-changing market, your company should nonetheless plan for the long term. This will enable you to avoid regulatory risks and catch long-term opportunities and will help you to manage your business in a responsible, sustainable manner. In addition, more and more stakeholders (e.g. customers, employees and NGOs) now demand transparency and sustainable actions.

At the same time, your company also needs to respond to climate change. Given the growing shortage of natural resources, it is important to adapt your current strategy accordingly. Only those companies that rise to meet this challenge will ultimately survive the competition. They may even gain a competitive advantage.

That is why we would be happy to help you to develop a sustainability strategy that is precisely tailored to your company. In doing so, we not only take into account the legislation and situation in Switzerland, but are also able to incorporate experience from other countries, thanks to our vast network.

Our services

Sustainability strategy and implementation

We will review your existing sustainability strategy and formulate one that suits your organisation's growth strategy. We will then make this strategy operational through Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and implement it by, for example, setting up a governance structure and monitoring system. This also involves defining a sustainable procurement strategy and making environmentally friendly changes with regard to production.

Climate change

Climate change and climate protection have long been impacting economic developments. They harbour financial risks that even today are making themselves felt in the real and financial economy. We help you to understand the risks, opportunities and cause-effect relationships and can develop sustainable and credible climate strategies. We will show you how you can determine your performance and identify risks and opportunities at the same time. We also ensure the necessary transparency with regard to emissions.

Sustainability report

Shareholders and stakeholders nowadays demand information from businesses that goes beyond the traditional financials. We support you in delivering both financial and non-financial information to your stakeholders, combining it in an integrated manner into an integrated report, a sustainability report, climate risk reports and other types of reports. Moreover, we ensure that you can demonstrate that the information is reliable and therefore credible.

Invest sustainably

Sustainable finance encompasses all activities by financial service providers that aim to reduce harm to the environment, promote social welfare and encourage responsible corporate governance. We can help you to develop a suitable investment strategy, understand the impacts of capital flows, guide you through the challenges of determining your climate risks and generally transform into a resilient and innovative financial business.

Committing to Net Zero

Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing our world today. It is 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. That’s why we’re making a worldwide science-based commitment to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
