We help you on your journey towards a sustainable global strategy
The new ESG focus and increased use of environmental taxes will impact companies’ supply chains and thus trade and indirect tax functions in the coming years. Most companies are climbing a steep learning curve about ESG’s impact on business strategy, operations and competitiveness. Companies must analyse multiple business, operations, tax and tariff scenarios, understand the costs of different supply chain configurations as well as opportunities and make informed decisions quickly.
You need a modern, automated trade programme that connects data from across the organisation and empowers a cross-functional team of experts to review and revise pricing, sourcing and manufacturing decisions, as events unfold. The goal is a fast, flexible and sustainable global footprint – so you’re ready to respond no matter what the future brings. At the same time, a tough regulatory environment calls for a strong compliance foundation in the indirect taxes, and customs and trade compliance functions.
Our PwC network of specialists brings you the interdisciplinary perspectives needed to make your trade strategy work for your business. From economic impacts on your industry, to trade legislative developments, from an environmental tax and incentives perspective, from product innovation to supply chain performance, we can help you navigate the uncertainty, speed up your cross-border activities, address your compliance requirements and keep you ahead of the competition.
