Living our core values

Our core values, including our commitment to doing business ethically, legally and with integrity, are the foundation of our company’s culture.

Responsibility to advance corporate citizenship at Accenture starts at the top, with our Board, our Executive Chairman and our CEO, and cascades through our business, including use of performance objectives relating to corporate citizenship.

Innovating for social impact

As a global leader, we have a responsibility to leverage technology for good, and also to understand, anticipate and manage the consequences of the technologies we bring to our clients, our people and our communities.

We are continually innovating to find new ways to put individuals at the center of what we do and are using our expertise to build a more-inclusive future in which everyone can thrive.

Social Innovators

As part of our Social Innovator initiative, Accenture is working to define and drive adoption of new standards for responsible innovation. Our people are leveraging the latest technological advances to transform the way the world works and lives—and making the world a better place along the way.

Developing a responsible supply chain

Accenture has the purchasing power and multi-billion-dollar supply chain to drive positive change on a global scale. Our ambition is to create more-sustainable supply chains through a mindset of responsible buying both inside and outside our company, while generating long-term value for our clients, suppliers and communities.

To go beyond transactional procurement, we have developed Procurement Plus, which is our overarching philosophy about working with our suppliers and wider ecosystem to advance key priorities, including environmental sustainability, human rights, inclusion, diversity and social innovation.
