COVID-19: What to do now, What to do next

Creating resilience in uncertain times.

The sustainability imperative

As investors demand more environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts and consumers increasingly expect brands to take action, organizations must now demonstrate that they are purposeful about sustainability, hold strong ethical standards and operate responsibly in everything they do.

For help, companies and brands are turning to their partners—and to technology. We bring deep experience integrating sustainability into strategy, operating models, processes and technologies to deliver sustainable growth.

Now is the time for business to partner with government and society to reimagine, rebuild and transform our global economy into one that benefits all stakeholders.

Migrating to the sustainable cloud can help companies deliver on their commitments to carbon reduction and responsible innovation.

Rising to the challenge

We work closely with clients and ecosystem partners to help transition industries to low-carbon energy; reduce the carbon footprint of IT, cloud and software; and design and deliver net-zero, circular supply chains.

We help our clients build sustainable operating models for the future by new skilling workforces and developing specific sustainability skills for leaders.
