Maintaining our independence
One of the most critical characteristics of an auditor is to guarantee independence, something that Veronique Toully believes PwC achieves incredibly well while also helping the firm move forward on its sustainability journey.
"We've very open and honest discussions with PwC experts. They always ask good questions. This is a true partnership, while PwC strictly maintains its required independence as our auditor. It’s thanks to the way we work together that we’ve been able to come as far as we have already," Veronique Toully explains. Going forward, UCB will continue to call on PwC's extensive knowledge of the regulatory environment to see how it can leverage developments to further maximise the value it adds to society as a whole.
