Sustained outcomes

Almost half of all CEOs in the Netherlands think their organisation will cease to exist if they fail to change in the short term. The challenges of tomorrow require actions and new thinking today. PwC’s community of solvers studies complex issues from all perspectives to find sustained outcomes that allow us to convert ambitions into action. And together we can make a world of difference for organisations, their stakeholders and their environment.

Sustainable actions

PwC professionals Wineke Ploos van Amstel-Haagsma, Anouar Ouali and Keetie van der Torren-Jakma discuss sustained outcomes. What are they seeing in the market, what is PwC doing as an organisation, and how does our approach help other organisations make progress? Watch here.

Discover how we realise sustained outcomes:


Building trust is necessary for both organisations and society as a whole. And trust has never been more important. In a rapidly changing world, trust plays a major part in solving challenges and conflicts. Trust is the basis for cooperation, strong relationships, better communication, increased productivity and, ultimately, solutions that are accepted by all those involved.

Have the rules of the environment in which your organisation operates changed or become less clear? Addressing such developments demands fresh perspectives and a different approach. You need to adapt your organisation and focus on creating value in the long term. Instead of aiming for quick wins, work towards lasting results that make a difference. Successful business transformations go beyond financial matters alone – they also, and especially, involve a focus on issues such as culture, digitalisation, sustainability and (socio-)economic developments. This is how you achieve a transformation that works.

Sustainability involves more than good intentions and ambitions. It’s about making a difference – for your organisation, your stakeholders and society as a whole. Achieving sustainable results that not only profit organisations but benefit everyone involved. Solutions that generate value and stimulate growth, while improving our environment and society.

Community of solvers: actions are more sustainable than words

Vidur Goerdat, Keetie van der Torren-Jakma, Guido van Aardenne, Waithera Kinyeki, Ellen McCready and Lex Huis in het Veld are part of our community of solvers. Find out what sustained outcomes mean to them, and how they translate ambitions into actions in their daily activities.

'To me, sustained outcomes mean continuously striving for a better future and greater awareness of the ways in which you can have an impact.'

'Sustained outcomes aren’t simple and are different for every organisation. Each organisation requires a custom solution while heading for the same goal.'

'Sustainability goes beyond compliance and ticking legal obligation boxes. The proper integration of sustainability can set organisations apart from their competitors.'

'I help many organisations identify the material, financial and non-financial costs and risks in a world that is increasingly integrated and mutually dependent.'

'Although thinking outside the box is needed, sustained outcomes should also fit within the wider environment and strategy of the organisation.'

'To face the challenges of our time in an accountable, scalable and structural way, two questions are key: what will make you relevant ten years from now and how will you get there?'
