Businesses, governments and investors now recognise the dangers of a warming climate. But there is another, interrelated ecological crisis looming that is every bit as important. Loss of nature and biodiversity is also threatening the stability of our world. The collapse of nature and climate change will impact every business, the economy and humanity. What we do in the next decade will be critical to all life on Earth.
To demonstrate our purpose in action, PwC supported WWF to screen a new film inspired by the Our Planet Netflix series - Our Planet: Our Business during Green Week 2019. We hosted a global webcast on World Environment Day, and a number of exclusive preview screenings in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai to engage our internal and external stakeholders. This has successfully provided a platform for clients, other corporates, social enterprises, charities and our people to explore together how business can solve the world's most important environmental problems.
“The team at PwC has been championing this film since its inception, realising early on how important it is for business engagement on nature loss, alongside climate.”
In addition to the screening events, a series of other internal communications and activities were organised to further engage our staff, including volunteering activities with local NGOs and charities, focused on conserving and restoring our natural environment, and encouraging our people to make a personal pledge to support a more sustainable lifestyle.
