To support the new Accenture purpose, CEO Julie Sweet recently launched our brand campaign—Let there be change—an inspiration to our people and clients to embrace change for the benefit of all. We believe today’s rapid acceleration to digital presents us with an opportunity to create a better future, and our strategy is to embed responsible business into our services for our clients as well as to operate Accenture as a responsible business.
Global fashion retailer H&M is one of our clients that we are helping to continue its journey as a responsible business.
H&M delivers fashion in a sustainable way, and is green even within IT. Its online ecommerce solution that is built and run by Accenture, was yesterday running H&M’s own data centers and already sourcing only green energy, and tomorrow will use wind power on Azure cloud. Thanks to cloud transformation features such as auto-scaling it will use even less energy—essentially, it’s a sustainable green cloud.
