Corporate responsibility

Corporate Responsibility (CR) is an inherent part of our business. As a firm we are committed to playing a leading role in achieving a sustainable future. This means that we are accountable for our actions and promote responsible business practices in the marketplace. We support the growth and development of our people and communities and we always seek to minimise our impact on the environment. We aim to embed Corporate Responsibility in all of our business processes and create a distinctive business in a responsible way. We're on a journey to make every decision and every day count towards a sustainable future.

In 2017, our commitment to working sustainably within our community was recognised by Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI), and we were awarded the 'Business Working Responsibly Mark'.

The Mark assesses best-in-class Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability and looks at areas such as ethics, employee engagement, innovation, environmental practices, supply chain management and engagement with the local community.

Corporate responsibility in PwC Ireland

Through our Corporate Responsibility Programme we leverage the talent, enthusiasm and generosity of our people across Ireland. It gives our people the opportunity to make a significant and lasting contribution to our community.

We encourage everyone to get involved. With PwC Ireland, you can step up, get involved and make a difference!


Our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. This purpose guides our decisions and shapes how we work as part of our local communities. Our community engagement programmes enable our people across Ireland to give back and make an impact by leveraging their skills, networks and enthusiasm in a way that makes a lasting difference.


PwC has provided funding of €100,000 to establish the PwC Ireland Resilient Communities Fund, supporting local community groups to start impactful projects based on proven ideas. The fund is the result of a new partnership between PwC and ChangeX, a community engagement platform designed to get funding and resources directly into the hands of people to lead impactful projects in their communities.

Applicants can choose from a portfolio of nine transformative projects such as ‘STEAM in a Box’, which inspires primary school students to love STEAM subjects; ‘Books for Bright Futures’, an initiative aimed at promoting literacy; ‘Community Fridge’, which tackles food waste and encourages community sharing; and ‘Cycle Bus’, a solution focused on sustainable transportation for children and building connections in the community.

You can apply to the PwC Ireland Resilient Communities Fund on the ChangeX PwC platform.
