This report provides insight into how PwC Norway’s audit practice works to ensure quality in the audit.
In the Transparency Report, we provide insight into how we work continuously to improve audit quality. PwC is a multi-disciplinary business with processes to ensure quality in all our business areas. This report is primarily focused on our audit practice.
At PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. We are a network of firms in 155 countries with more than 284 000 people who are committed to delivering quality in Assurance, Advisory and Tax & Legal services. We are committed to drive a strong culture of quality and excellence that is core to our purpose.
Our credibility as a public trustee rests upon our ability to evolve with the world surrounding us, and most desirably, to lead the way. Therefore we invest significantly in new skills, technology and services that will help us to lead the development of our industry, maintain our relevance and enhance the quality in our services.
In an ever-changing world, new insights and different perspectives are decisive for solving complex problems. Hence, we have stated that PwC shall be a diverse group of people who think with their head and heart. In order to strengthen the future competitiveness of both PwC and the audit profession, we work constantly to renew our role as an employer to establish the best and most progressive development arenas for our employees.
One of the most important problems of our time is the climate crisis. It is inherent to the audit industry and part of our social mission to contribute to the sustainable development of Norwegian businesses. PwC shall be a driving force for transparency and builder of trust in the companies’ reporting. Sharing our knowledge and performing verifications are two ways that we can contribute to the necessary green transition of society. We have set ambitious goals in order for the pace of the work related to the climate crisis to pick up. For example, we are committed to making our entire operation and vendor supply chain climate neutral by 2030.
At PwC, we strive for transparency and accurate information. Through the Transparency Report, we are proud and pleased to present how we work with quality.
