Companies can achieve better business agility and market responsiveness by embedding sustainability across their strategy, culture and operations.
Sustainability challenges and opportunities. “Sustainability started as a moral obligation, but has now become a key differentiator." That’s a key insight from one of the CEOs quoted in a recent research report from Accenture and the United Nations Global Compact. Although executives are concerned about a variety of related consumer, regulatory and business issues, they believe that sustainable products, services and operations are now a source of competitive advantage.
Yet many challenges remain if sustainability is to be fully integrated across an organization’s entire value chain. One such challenge is giving managers and other key workforces the knowledge and skills they need to execute sustainability strategies and to drive innovations in sustainable supply chains and products.
Increasing sustainability skills and leadership capabilities to create competitive advantage. Accenture Sustainability Academy offers online courses, live webinars and an ever-expanding database of research and articles covering a range of sustainability topics and proficiency levels. The blended, interactive learning environment leverages a competency-based learning approach together with rich and relevant content—supported by a flexible and cost effective delivery platform—that can create a more proficient and consistently trained global workforce.
Organizations can leverage our core, industrialized Sustainability Academy, or Accenture can also customize a curriculum to specific needs and goals. With distinctive capabilities across a range of sustainability areas, companies can achieve competitive advantage and drive added benefits such as improved recruitment and retention of top talent.
