Our sponsorships

At PwC Ireland, our mission is to build trust in society and solve important problems. We do that by making sure that we follow our core values. We feel that our values are essential for responsible business. To be able to sponsor initiatives that reflect those values is important to us.

Our goal through our sponsorships is to make a valuable contribution to Irish society. We want to build trust with the organisations we partner with. We want to demonstrate across all of our sponsorships our guiding principles: that working together with integrity and reimagining what is possible is key to making a difference and delivering great results.

Our sponsorships

Supporting companies of every size and at every stage of their development is important in helping to create a thriving economy.

Business Post climate and environment partnership

Sustainability is a core consideration for businesses, with environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles forming the foundation of sustainable corporate strategy.

In October 2021, we became an exclusive partner with the Business Post on a range of ESG-themed initiatives. The partnership covers new and existing sustainability-focused platforms and features a number of media firsts for the title. 

In addition to the existing sponsorship of the popular Five Degrees of Change podcast with Daniel Murray, the expanded partnership supports new print and digital properties. These include the recently launched weekly ESG Briefing newsletter for Business Post subscribers and an online residency in the title's Climate and Environment hub – the first commercial partnership of its kind for the media group.

PwC Business Post Sustainable Business Awards

Created and produced in partnership with PwC, the awards recognise the best-performing Irish businesses promoting sustainable practice, innovation and thought leadership across a range of environmental, social and governance categories. To submit a free and confidential entry, or for more details about the category criteria, judging panel and judging process, visit Sustainable Business Awards.

Five Degrees of Change

PwC exclusively sponsors the Business Post's Five Degrees of Change podcast, an award-nominated energy and environment podcast. Each week, host Daniel Murray challenges leading 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 for a business audience.


Our IMAGE Media sponsorship represents a bold departure for PwC. This partnership embraces an inspirational programme of events and engagements. It includes the IMAGE/Business Summit, a series of networking breakfasts and mentoring masterclasses, and it culminates in the flagship PwC IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year Awards ceremony. 

Through our partnership, we will create powerful opportunities for leaders and entrepreneurs, founders and innovators to tell their stories, and to learn and be inspired by their success. We believe in championing transformation and celebrating the vision, resilience and ambition of those who think beyond what they are to what they can become.

On the Record with Newstalk's Gavan Reilly

PwC is the exclusive sponsor of Newstalk's On The Record programme with Gavan Reilly. It provides an engaging mix of discussion and debate on the main issues in politics, policy and current affairs. Every Sunday from 11am to 1pm, it reviews the Sunday newspapers and weekend sport and provides the best analysis on the issues of the day and for the week ahead. Listen to the show.

Visionary performance needs strategic thinking and execution. To reach the next level in business or sport means being imaginative, brave and committed. We are committed to developing new talent and enabling our people to fulfil their potential. The right conditions and possibilities for ambitious people to develop and succeed are at the heart of our business and sports partnerships.

The PwC All-Stars, The PwC Camogie All-Stars and Player of the Month Awards

PwC Ireland enjoys a long and far-reaching partnership with both the GAA and GPA. Having sponsored both organisations since 2012, we amplified that commitment in 2017 by sponsoring The PwC All-Star Awards. In 2022, we also became the title sponsor of The PwC Camogie All-Star Awards, strengthening our support for Irish sport while reinforcing our commitment to increasing 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 equally recognise and profile outstanding performances by players across all codes throughout the championship season.

Official sponsor of the IRFU

As one of the longest running sponsors of the IRFU, we were delighted to announce an extension of our partnership in 2020.

This expanded initiative is built around nurturing talent, growing resilience and supporting ambition. Like our colleagues in the IRFU, we believe in nurturing and inspiring talent to realise their full potential. We know stepping up to the next level means never being satisfied, taking responsibility and being creative. PwC are agents for change for leading businesses; this sponsorship shares those ambitions for Ireland's best young players. 

This deal is an all-encompassing partnership to advance the future of Irish rugby, with the renewal of key sponsorships of Men's International U20s, U19s and U18s teams and, new under this contract, the U18s Women's and Men's Interprovincial Championships. Moreover, PwC is now also the main sponsor of the National Training Squad programme (previously the Elite Player Development Pathway) to develop talented underage club and school players.

As one of Ireland's largest employers of graduates, PwC has a huge focus on developing key talent. Our education sponsorships mirror our commitment to nurturing talent and expanding the scope of learning for the next generation.


PwC Ireland and University College Dublin (UCD) have a strategic partnership to support the development of education and leadership development, thought leadership and innovation, and corporate social responsibility. Our joint work includes internship programmes, mentoring and academic programmes, as well as research and promoting equality in education and wellness.


The firm is delighted to work with a youth and development community project team called Localise. Localise assists PwC in working with the 6th class students of St Laurence O'Toole National School in Dublin to develop fundraising initiatives for local/inner city charities.

Junior Achievement

We support our staff who take time out of their working day to deliver Junior Achievement educational programmes targeted at inner city schools, educating students between 5 and 15 on business-related topics.

Trinity Employability Award

In PwC, we are passionate about employability. We work with the Careers service in Trinity College to deliver a range of employability workshops. These lead to an Employability Award certificate for successful participants. These equip students with skills to help them to excel in their future careers.

DCU Access Programme

PwC are proud to be part of the DCU Access Programme. It promotes equality of access to third level education for students from groups under-represented in higher education. We have annual sponsorships towards a scholarship within the programme. We also take part in Access's summer internship placement programme for their students.

NUI Galway Skills Pathway

PwC Ireland sponsors the NUI Galway Skills Pathway. We also take part in the three modules it offers: Skill for Success, Skills for Business, and Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise. At PwC we value students' commitment to their development and this partnership enables us to support NUI Galway in delivering these skills to their students.

Culture is at the heart of Irish life, and our sponsorships in this space reflect our dedication to collaboration and creativity to come up with innovative results.

Business to Arts

The PwC Ireland/Business to Arts CEO forum is a group of CEOs from across business and the arts who come together to discuss new technologies and strategies, sharing insights from the cultural industries and the wider business sector.

Wexford Festival Opera

PwC Ireland sponsors the Wexford Factory, an academy for young Irish or Irish-based singers. It takes place in September, in advance of the festival in October. Like Wexford Festival Opera, we believe in nurturing and inspiring young talent to realise their full potential.
