In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe Belgium has a unique opportunity to look for a new impulse and ambition to prepare itself for the next decade; to find more sustainable and inclusive ways to work, live and study, that create a better balance between prosperity and wellbeing. This means responding to some of the critical challenges it faces.
Ensuring growth and competitiveness
Meeting growing ESG demands

"We need a compelling and positive message, that creates long-term perspective and pride and which will enable our country to thrive again."
PwC’s new global strategy is about helping stakeholders address their toughest challenges and delivering sustained outcomes for society and the planet. It reflects fundamental changes in the operating environment faced by clients and stakeholders, including technological disruption, climate change, fractured geopolitics and the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our approach embodies who we are: a community of solvers coming together in unexpected ways to deliver outcomes for organisations, their customers, stakeholders and communities, which make a positive and enduring impact right across the value chain. And our formula is simple: we deliver bold ideas, solutions which are human-led and tech-powered and meaningful experiences which deliver real-life results.
The New Equation focuses on two interconnected needs that companies and organisations face in the coming years.
To build trust, which has never been more important, nor more difficult. Organisations increasingly need to earn trust across a wide range of topics that are important to their stakeholders. Success depends on fundamental shifts in the way executives think, organisational culture, systems and ambition.
The way we do business is the very foundation of our shared prosperity, and the business community must now lead the transformation to create true and lasting value – for all stakeholders - companies, institutions, investors, consumers, the workforce and governments etc.
Organisations that do not address the issue of Diversity and Inclusion take the risk of no longer being relevant in the labour market.The establishment of an inclusive culture is a must so that each individual, regardless of their differences, can express themselves, be recognised and valued as such.
Organisations need to minimise uncertainty and be able to prove to stakeholders they can withstand scrutiny, now and into the future. Is your current tax policy sustainable?
