The sustainability imperative

As stakeholders demand more environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts, regulations tighten and consumers increasingly expect brands to take action, organizations must now demonstrate that they are purposeful about sustainability, hold strong ethical standards and operate responsibly in everything they do.

Increasingly, companies and brands are turning to their partners—and to technology and innovation—to integrate sustainability and create meaningful change that’s good for business, society and the planet. Our dedicated teams bring deep experience and industry expertise to develop and implement strategies, operating models, processes, and technologies to help our clients around the world create business value and sustainable impact, enabled by technology and human ingenuity. Together with our partners, we’re helping to solve the biggest problems our clients and the world face to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and tackle climate change.

Now is the time for collaboration—for business to partner with government and society to reimagine, rebuild and transform our global economy into one that benefits all stakeholders.

Accenture highlights how leaders can manage and measure sustainable performance for long-term value and impact.

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.

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.

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.

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.
