Accountancy firms awarded for community work

KPMG UK, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) UK and Ernst & Young UK have been presented with Big Ticks in the annual Business in the Community (BITC) Awards for Excellence.

Big Ticks are awarded to companies that demonstrate the positive impact of responsible working practices on both society and their own business.

KPMG and PwC both achieved the highest possible rating, Platinum Plus, in the BITC’s Corporate Responsibility Index, a UK benchmark of voluntary corporate responsibility.

KPMG was awarded two Big Ticks for its environmental leadership and employability programmes.

KPMG was also recognised for demonstrating positive impact against one or more of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and for collaborative action with other companies that has had a positive impact on the community.

PwC was recognised for investing in a number of training programmes and events to allow internal development opportunities.

Ernst & Young received a Big Tick for its education programme, which focuses on supporting young people in 20 state schools across UK and Ireland. Ernst & Young was also recognised for the ongoing success of its education partnership scheme.

BITC is a British business-community outreach charity.
