Our sponsorships

Supporting our clients and our people to be the best they can be is at the heart of what we do at PwC. Sponsoring initiatives that nurture this ambition, foster opportunity, and inspire people to develop and succeed is vitally important for us.

At the heart of business 

As a leading and trusted business partner, PwC advises businesses of every size to succeed. Our business sponsorships enable us to promote our expertise on key business issues to targeted audiences.

Business Post climate and environment partnership

Whatever sector your business is in, building a sustainable corporate strategy means embracing environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles. We aim to future-proof organisations by making them more resilient and sustainable. 

To help educate and inspire the Irish business community, we partner with the Business Post on an exclusive range of ESG initiatives: 

PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards

Created and produced in partnership with PwC, these awards recognise the best Irish businesses promoting sustainability across a range of ESG categories. To submit a free and confidential entry, or to learn more about the awards, visit Sustainable Business Awards.

Five Degrees of Change

The Business Post's Five Degrees of Change podcast is an award-nominated energy and environment podcast, exclusively sponsored by PwC. 

Each week, host Daniel Murray challenges leading business figures to propose their personal and policy changes for a greener world. The result is pragmatic and accessible conversations on the big environmental issues of the day.

At the heart of Irish sporting ambition 

Developing and celebrating sporting talent and enabling future heroes to fulfill their potential aligns perfectly with our commitment to our own people. 

Our Gaelic games sponsorships 

Our long and far-reaching partnerships with both the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and Gaelic Players Association (GPA) have run since 2012. We expanded our commitment in 2017 by becoming the title sponsors of the PwC All-Star Awards

In 2022, we also became the title sponsor of the PwC Camogie All-Star Awards, reinforcing our ambition to increase the profile and participation of women in sport. 

In addition, the PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month Awards and the PwC GPA Women’s Player of the Month Awards recognise and profile outstanding performances by players across all Gaelic codes throughout the championship season.

Nurturing underage Irish rugby

Nurturing talent, developing resilience and supporting ambition is at the core of our partnership. Like the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU), we believe in enabling Ireland’s best young players to realise their full potential. That means never being satisfied, owning responsibility and being determined. 

As partners of the IRFU since 2005, PwC is one of its longest-running sponsors, covering. 

  • Men's International U20s, U19s and U18s
  • Women's International U18s
  • U18s Women's and Men's Interprovincial Championships

We also sponsor the National Training Squad programme (previously the Elite Player Development Pathway) to develop talented underage club and school players.
