In an ever more complex and interconnected world, organizations of all kinds must establish and maintain trust, taking a proactive, holistic approach to transparency. Openness can help to serve as an antidote to the overload of information, misinformation, and scandals that continue to erode the public’s faith in institutions – but only if greater transparency points to reliable information.
For PwC, building trust in society and solving important problems is at the heart of who we are. We see trust as something that must constantly be earned – a journey, rather than a destination, that requires non-stop attention and a focus on the greater good. We help organizations across a range of sectors improve the internal controls, reporting mechanisms, and communication strategies that provide a solid foundation for transparency. Long recognized for our skills in handling information and assets properly, organizations, such as charitable funds established for victims of crimes and natural and other disasters, have turned to PwC for assistance. We hold ourselves to the same high standards, implementing robust governance, ethics, and accountability measures to help maintain integrity throughout our entire organization.
