PwC Australia Case Study
Case Study: PwC Australia
In 2008 PwC developed an environmental strategy that outlined a goal to offset the firm's GHG emissions. Read about how a leading professional services firm is going 100% renewable with GoldPower.
What was the context?
PwC has been purchasing Australian GreenPower Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) since July 2008. This enabled the firm to claim a percentage of its electricity usage as being from GreenPower accredited renewable energy sources. Moving forward, PwC sought to procure high quality domestic or international RECs, that would allow them to continue to use 100% renewable energy offsets for their electricity emissions.
What was the challenge?
To achieve carbon neutral certification by finding a carbon offset or renewable energy certificate (REC) solution that was not only good value for money, but also reputable, transparent, high quality and low risk.
How did PwC proceed - what was the solution?
PwC chose GoldPower Renewable Energy because it is the world's first global renewable energy label. It was developed by Climate Friendly, part of the South Pole, with the support of WWF, the world's leading conservation organisation in response to demand for a truly global and truly effective renewable energy label. GoldPower is recognised under the WWF Climate Savers program.
