PwC is committed to operating within a framework of ethical and professional standards, laws, regulations, internal policies and our core values. PwC is also a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (“UNGC”) and is committed to the 10 principles that are the foundations of the UNGC.
At PwC, we expect the same level of integrity and business conduct from our Third Parties, their personnel and anyone outside their organisation engaged to provide services for or with PwC, as we do our own people. These standards are explained in our Global Third Party Code of Conduct. The Third Party Code explains the minimum standards of integrity and business conduct we expect of the Third Parties with which we do business.
Knowing, understanding, and behaving according to the Third Party Code is, as is the case for compliance with legal obligations, an essential element to working for or with PwC. PwC expects Third Parties also to be mindful of their ethical responsibilities and to embed the behaviours outlined in the Third Party Code into their work for or with PwC.
We acknowledge that no code can address every situation that Third Parties may encounter. As a result, the Third Party Code is not a substitute for Third Parties’ own accountability and responsibility to exercise good judgment and proper business conduct.
PwC expects Third Parties to be mindful of their ethical responsibilities and to embed the behaviors outlined in Third Party Code into their work for or with PwC.
