Learn more about Accenture's reporting approach.
Accenture continually takes steps to advance our corporate citizenship journey and to formalize and strengthen our reporting approach.
Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
We use GRI G3 Guidelines as a foundation for our reporting approach and self-declare our 2012–2013 Corporate Citizenship Report at Application Level B, as checked by GRI.

We continue to be transparent in reporting our environmental performance, responding to CDP annually—specifically, to its Investor Program since 2007 and its Supply Chain Program since 2009. In 2013, Accenture was included, for the fifth consecutive year, on CDP's Global 500, which tracks how the world’s largest listed companies are addressing climate change. We received a disclosure score of 92 (out of 100) and a performance score of B.

A number of Accenture teams recommend the performance metrics and goals provided in our 2012–2013 Corporate Citizenship Report. We vet the information with an internal controls process, including senior leadership, to ensure it provides a meaningful and balanced representation of Accenture's non-financial performance.
Our reported carbon data is prepared using methods based on the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify and manage greenhouse gas emissions. Accenture is a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, one of the founding partners of the GHG Protocol.
Additionally, we continue to enhance our performance management systems. These global tools provide a single database for efficient tracking and monitoring of our activities. They also provide timely and accurate detail and analysis that enable us to monitor and track progress against our corporate citizenship objectives.
Further, as part of Accenture's global ISO 14001 approach, our Environmental Management System (EMS) is audited and certified annually by BSI Management Systems.
