At PwC, Corporate Sustainability is core to our purpose and values. As part of our regional strategy, we have coined five key strategic priorities which are key to continue to build trust in society and solve important problems while ensuring continued responsible growth in the region.

In addition, our network level Net Zero commitment has added a lens of environmental stewardship that is not only limited to our business operations, but to our wider stakeholder network as well. 

We are embarking on a journey towards creating more social and environmental impact than ever before. It is a great time to join the PwC Middle East network and be part of this sustainable change.

  • Work closely with the Chief People Officer (CPO) to drive the firm’s Corporate Sustainability (CS) agenda in the Middle East (ME).
  • Constantly review, update and develop the regional CS strategy and strategic priorities to remain true to the global and regional strategy, and to external market needs. Engage with key leadership stakeholders to ensure this is in line with their vision for the region.
  • Create a network of external stakeholders to ensure alignment on shared agendas.
  • Lead and project manage the end of year reporting and audit requirements that PwC ME has to comply with for the Global CR team.
