ABOUT ACCENTURE


Corporate Citizenship

In the UK, Accenture has a long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility. We place huge importance on engaging in the challenges of the communities we live and work in.

Overview

At Accenture we believe that one of the most important things we can do as a business is to engage in the challenges of the communities we live and work in. Our focus isn’t limited to our work within communities or programmes that naturally fit within a Corporate Social Responsibility agenda—we see our broader remit as being at the heart of the UK Growth Agenda—supporting the creation of jobs, improving skills and employability, and contributing to the economic success of the UK and Ireland.



“In the UK, our focus is on environmental sustainability and social sustainability in the form of our Skills to Succeed initiative aimed at helping to address youth unemployment. We want to bring positive change to the communities where we live and work. I am deeply proud of the enthusiasm and commitment I see from our people as they use their time, skills and experience to bring our citizenship ambitions to life every day.”

Country Managing Director, UK and Ireland

Our Programmes

Governance

Accenture’s Corporate Citizenship agenda is central to Accenture’s strategy and is led by our chief strategy officer, Omar Abbosh. An important part of our Ambition 2020 vision for market leadership is our commitment to making a measurable impact in our external communities.

The Corporate Citizenship strategy is governed by the Corporate Citizenship Council and the Environment Steering Group, who make strategic recommendations on our key initiatives. Our leadership approves and acts on these recommendations, taking responsibility for driving our objectives through the organisation.
