Meeting strong emissions targets globally will require new ways of thinking and innovation - and we’re here to help clients with the decarbonization challenges ahead. Our joint offering will help connect and integrate energy infrastructure to unlock carbon intelligence and transform business models to deliver low carbon energy experiences.
We’ve helped companies like Duke Energy and SSE Renewables make net-zero carbon emissions a reality by improving their measurement, analytics, and performance reporting. Through “Green by Design” technologies, like the Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability, we can help organizations track their carbon footprint across the entire operation and improve visibility and transparency throughout the value chain.
Agriculture is our most essential industry, but it's also one of the most energy intensive. Alongside Accenture, Avanade, and Microsoft, companies can accelerate agri-food innovation and build strong, inclusive ecosystems that improve nutritional value, increase food security, and increase biodiversity. Through a unifying approach to carbon reduction, regenerative agriculture certification, and supply chain transparency, we can build technology platforms that connect all involved – from seed-to-fork and farmer-to-consumer – for better decision making, building trust, and demonstrating the contribution each player in the value chain can make to sustainability. Together, we can help this entire ecosystem leverage the power of technology to advance today.
It's time to establish a digital foundation that enables manufacturers to deliver against corporate sustainability ambitions and economic growth goals, together. We can help clients build upon their digital capabilities, alleviating pressure on finite resources through a circular manufacturing process that leverages Digital Twins as a key technology building block, helping develop more efficient, productive, and profitable supply chains.
Through our joint sustainability solutions, Accenture, Avanade, and Microsoft can help accelerate digital operations transformation and drive impactful reductions in energy & materials waste. Together, we can minimize the environmental footprint of operational systems and processes within factories and buildings.
Accenture research shows that 78% of finance leaders are seeking to understand the financial risk to their business that sustainability represents, yet only 47% have defined key metrics for their ESG reporting, and only 26% of companies have reliable data to measure and monitor their sustainability goals.
Our co-developed sustainable solutions accelerate data integration, giving clients an accurate assessment of their carbon impact across scopes, breaking information silos, and providing data-led insights that drive sustainability action forward. The Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability, combined with Accenture's industry expertise and Avanade's data and digital experience, will help clients leverage their data through enhanced recording and reporting, using it to take action and reduce emissions.
Clients are facing mounting market, regulatory, and organizational pressures to embed sustainability into their own operational models, reducing their IT carbon footprint and making progress toward their own sustainability goals.
Through the Accenture Green Cloud Advisor, Avanade Isotope, and Microsoft Emissions impact dashboard, we can identify opportunities to replace tools, systems, and activities with cleaner options, adding business insight and value. By integrating green software principles, we can help tech and business leaders make intelligent choices around how to balance usage and how to invest in software the right way. Reduce your emissions and drive a sustainable digital transformation atop a green Azure Cloud provided by Microsoft and optimized by Accenture and Avanade.
Stakeholders globally are calling for robust methane emissions reporting and reductions. That’s why Accenture and Microsoft are partnering to define a new approach to detect, analyze, and predict through the Methane Emissions Monitoring Platform. This cloud solution leverages the power of Azure to make net-zero methane emissions a reality through real-time data measurement and tech-powered systems that predict and prevent emissions, enabling immediate action that drives business efficiency and growth.
Now, energy and utility companies can quickly identify fugitive hotspots as well as venting and flaring optimization, reducing the friction and time required to monitor and report, and enabling prevention and remediation end-to-end. Take a 360-degree approach to methane reduction and see how we can help your company enhance transparency, increase worker safety, and shore up savings, driving impact and optimization across your operations.
