About PwC Sustainability
At PwC, working in Sustainability is an opportunity to have a purposeful career to positively contribute to some of the most pressing problems of our time by helping to reshape the whole economy and the society in which we live.
Through speed, collaboration, and imaginative thinking we’re helping our clients to build trust in the climate transition by building credibility of non-financial and climate reporting, helping clients to transform sustainably, ensure the transition to Net Zero is fair, and ensuring our own business is ready to meet the challenge and sharing this story with our clients. As part of The New Equation, PwC is investing $12bn globally over the next 5 years, creating over 100,000 new jobs with a particular focus on strengthening our ESG capabilities across the firm.
Our Sustainability practice is market-leading with over 20 years experience in leading and transforming client's approaches to sustainability.
This role is centred around ESG Reporting but you can expect to be working with, and learning from team members who are also focussing on a broad range of sustainability topics through working with our clients.
The next 24 months will be a critical transitional phase for ESG reporting, given the number of new and emerging ESG regulations that are likely to be applicable in 2024 and beyond.
