By investing in our people, we are better able to serve the needs of our clients and our communities—and achieve our vision of improving the way the world works and lives.
Through our Skills to Succeed corporate citizenship initiative, we have equipped more than 800,000 people around the world with the skills to get a job or build a business—more than three times the impact we set out to achieve. Together with our strategic partners, we will expand this figure to more than 3 million people by the end of fiscal 2020; sharpen our focus on the transition from skill-building programs to sustainable jobs and businesses; and bring together organizations across sectors to create large-scale, lasting solutions aimed at closing global employment gaps.
We are also committed to reducing the environmental impacts—including carbon, waste and water—from our offices and operations and to fostering sustainable growth among all our stakeholders. By the end of fiscal 2020, we will reduce our carbon emissions to an average of two metric tons per employee—representing a more than 50 percent reduction from our 2007 baseline—and we will begin to measure and report the impact of our work with clients and suppliers in key areas of sustainability. In 2015, we were included for the 11th consecutive year in both the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index and the FTSE4Good Global Index, and were also included in the new S&P Environmental & Socially Responsible Index.
In closing, I want to extend my sincere thanks to the men and women of Accenture for their tremendous commitment and passion for delivering value for our clients and our company. We created very strong momentum in our business in fiscal 2015, positioning us very well for continued growth and market leadership. With the highly relevant and differentiated capabilities we have built—along with the continued disciplined management of our business—I am confident in our ability to continue driving sustainable, profitable growth.
