Sustainability
and climate change

Sometimes we give everything to help you achieve zero.

Trust in Transformation: trust in a partner who’ll take you step by step along the path to net zero.

In today’s fast-changing market, companies should nonetheless plan for the long-term. Sustainability plays a central role in how business is conducted and is crucial for achieving economic success. Managing your business in a responsible and sustainable manner, will help you to avoid regulatory risks and catch long-term opportunities.

More and more stakeholders (e.g. investors, customers, employees and NGOs) now demand transparency and sustainable actions and are interested in information that goes beyond a company’s financial report. They expect companies to take responsibility by identifying the ecological and social impact of their business models, and steering it through sustainable development.

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

Sustainable impact made real

Our services in sustainability: From strategy to implementation to reporting. Different companies are at different stages along the transformation to a more sustainable business model. We help you at every step of your ESG journey.

 

Sustainability strategy & 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 & net zero

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.

Sustainable finance

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.

Responsible investments

It is important to consider ESG criteria throughout the entire deal lifecycle when buying or selling a company. The entire investment process provides opportunities for sustainability and sustainability can become a key value driver in a transaction. There is a broad consensus that ESG objectives ultimately create value for portfolio companies, both from a risk and value creation perspective. 

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.
