Rising to the challenge

Sustainability Strategy

Through the lens of 360° value creation, we believe five forces will drive growth opportunities in the next decade. One of these forces is Sustainability–based not only on values and value, but also on resilience. Our Sustainability Strategy capability guides clients in defining their sustainability ambitions, building the business case and developing sustainability roadmaps.

Net Zero Transitions

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.

Sustainable Value Chain

Organizations are facing a new wave of pressure and urgency to reimagine their value chains to optimize for business value and sustainable impact. Accenture designs for impact by helping organizations to embed sustainability into every stage of the value chain to deliver trusted, net-zero and circular value chains. Read more.

Sustainable Technology

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 organizations to use technology more sustainably while also using technology as a vehicle to drive sustainability across the organization, operations, supply chains and ecosystem. Read more.

Sustainability Measurement, Analytics and Performance

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. Read more.

Sustainable Leadership and Organization

Organizations 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 organization. Accenture helps business leaders build sustainability into everything they do, creating intelligent organizations that are sustainable at their core.

Sustainable Customer Experience and Brand

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.
