Together with our partners, we help our clients reinvent their businesses at scale, creating business value and sustainable impact for all stakeholders.
As stakeholders demand more environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts, regulations tighten and consumers increasingly expect brands to take action, organisations must now demonstrate that they are purposeful about sustainability, hold strong ethical standards and operate responsibly in everything they do.
Increasingly, companies and brands are turning to their partners—and to technology and innovation—to integrate sustainability and create meaningful change that’s good for business, society and the planet. Our dedicated teams bring deep experience and industry expertise to develop and implement strategies, operating models, processes, and technologies to help our clients around the world create business value and sustainable impact, enabled by technology and human ingenuity. Together with our partners, we’re helping to solve the biggest problems our clients and the world face to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and tackle climate change.
Now is the time for collaboration—for business to partner with government and society to reimagine, rebuild and transform our global economy into one that benefits all stakeholders.
Our latest study on Sustainability shares opportunities and challenges for leaders to address the climate crisis.
From strategy to execution our portfolio of services is designed to help you tackle your greatest sustainability challenges and realise the competitive advantage and impact at scale that sustainability brings:
Transitioning to net-zero is increasingly a priority for all businesses. Entire industries are now urgently looking at how they can reinvent their end-to-end value chains for a sustainable future. Accenture helps with solutions to reduce carbon emissions, from buildings to transport to energy systems to cities while driving social and economic benefits.
Organisations are facing a new wave of pressure and urgency to reimagine their value chains to optimise for business value and sustainable impact. Accenture designs for impact by helping organisations to embed sustainability into every stage of the value chain to deliver trusted, net-zero and circular value chains. Read more.
Digital technology is a true enabler of sustainability— and we understand first-hand the vast promise of technology as well as the need to decouple the growth of emissions from growing technology adoption. Accenture enables organisations to use technology more sustainably while also using technology as a vehicle to drive sustainability across the organisation, operations, supply chains and ecosystem.

As citizens, employees, stakeholders and regulatory bodies increasingly demand businesses to become more sustainable, measuring and reporting ESG performance has become an imperative. Accenture provides the tools, technology, and methodologies to help businesses embed sustainability data, decision-making and performance into everything they do in order to effectively measure business value and sustainable impact for all stakeholders.

Organisations are increasingly pursuing more sustainable business models because it is the right thing to do. This shift also offers financial and competitive value to companies that make ESG and sustainability a priority at all levels of the organisation. Accenture helps business leaders build sustainability into everything they do, creating intelligent organisations that are sustainable at their core.
From the brands they admire to the products and services they actually choose, consumers are increasingly conscious of sustainability. But while many have the best intentions, they are not always likely to change their behaviors. Accenture combines deep insight and experience with technology to help clients convert their customers’ intentions into new behaviors by delivering sustainable customer experiences that meet consumers where they are on their sustainability journeys while shifting perceptions about a brand’s commitment to sustainability.
COVID-19 has created once-unimaginable challenges—but it also has awakened the world to an incredible opportunity to reimagine and rebuild. We have deep experience helping clients improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance, raise the bar on purpose, and embed responsible business—including sustainability—by design.
