Net zero

Sustainable decisiveness:
From net zero as ambition to net zero as standard

Net zero is one of the most ambitious and necessary goals of our time, one with an enormous impact on our planet and organisations. Those wishing to make a transformation have to not only look at their own company model from a different perspective – they must also map out their entire chain, enhance the sustainability of it and decarbonise. And that requires a thought-through data approach, the smartest technology, and an unprecedented degree of expertise. Our specialists help organisations make the right choices towards net zero. Together we can make a world of difference.

Ambition 2030: PwC aims for net zero

It was in 2006 when PwC expressed its ambition to be entirely net zero by 2030. Seventeen years on, our electricity consumption is fully sustainable, we offset all our carbon emissions, remove over half of our emissions from the atmosphere and have 26 per cent SBTi coverage with suppliers. PwC gained a wealth of knowledge and experience related to the net zero trajectory along the way.

This knowledge and experience is applied to everything we do for and share with our clients. What does the trajectory to net zero entail? Which key moments have we encountered along the way? And what advice does our Chief Sustainability Officer Wineke Haagsma offer PwC’s clients?
