PwC, formerly known as Pricewaterhouse Coopers, has a strong reputation as being Australia’s number one professional services firm to work for and claims to be a leader in sustainability.
As stated on their website: In 2008, PwC Australia was the first Australian professional services firm to become carbon neutral and we are proud to continue this commitment.
Yet in spite of their publicly stated commitment to the climate, PwC is currently a member of the Minerals Council of Australia – a powerful lobby group who has pushed a pro-coal agenda through heavy advertising campaigns and propping open the revolving door between parliament and the mining industry.
Essentially, PwC is giving money and social license to the world’s 8th worst opponent to climate action. For a self-proclaimed leader in sustainability this isn’t good enough, which is why 350 is calling on PwC to #CutAllTies.
