PwC UK a best green company for fourth year running
Credited for its new London headquarters, the first office building in London to be rated outstanding under BREAAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), as well as its green policies and staff commitment to making green improvements, PwC was rated as having a low environmental impact.
Chairman Ian Powell said: "PwC's place on the Best Green List for the fourth year in a row shows our clients and communities that we don't just give advice on sustainability in the marketplace; we live it in our day to day work.
"We're constantly working to improve our green credentials at every level, from the way we power our buildings, to the food we serve in our restaurants to the way our people travel."
PwC's More London headquarters generates 60% fewer CO2 emissions than a typical office building and 25% of the building's power is generated from recycled chip fat from local restaurants via the building's onsite tri-generator.
The firm was also noted for working with the landlords of its other UK buildings to reduce CO2, and for holding a series of debates with staff about sustainability issues for business and communities; staff in PwC's global network joined these debates via live webcast.
