Highlights of PCI’s work are shared in our Annual Reports, which also provides a financial overview of our organisation in any given year.
Our Legal Status
PCI is registered company limited by guarantee and a social enterprise. We do not seek to make profit and any financial surpluses are reinvested into the development of PCI’s services.
Partnership is at the centre of PCI’s operating model. Therefore, to maintain our integrity, values and transparency, we have developed a Partnership Policy with clear principles and criteria to consider before entering into any partnership.
Ethics, the environment and equality
Code of conduct
Drawing on best practice in the sector, including advice from sector membership organisation BOND, all those working for PCI sign up to a code of conduct, which is firmly rooted in universal values of respect and non-discrimination.
We seek to minimise the impact of our work on the environment. In practice, this means:
- We require staff and associates to travel by public transport and to carry out work virtually (by phone or on-line) where possible.
- We actively encourage homeworking and virtual working.
- We seek to build local human capacity to deliver work in-country where possible to minimise the number of international flights that we make each year.
- We make carbon offsetting contributions against all our air travel and mileage.
Equality and Diversity
PCI is committed to providing equal opportunities for all, irrespective of age, disability, marital or partnership status, religion/belief, working pattern, caring responsibilities, gender and gender identity, race and sexual orientation. We recognise the value of diversity and seek to promote this in all aspects of our work.
