Impact through innovation

New technologies and business models can transform how the international development community serves people in need. Accenture Development Partnerships helps organizations in this sector dramatically increase their impact in areas such as global healthcare, education, financial inclusion and energy access. By applying the talents of our people, capabilities and experience, we are empowering our clients, including non-governmental organizations, foundations and government financial institutions, to improve millions of lives in the developing world. Together with our clients, we are building momentum to change the world and bringing us closer to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

We help our clients develop sustainable, innovative and market-based solutions to maximize value while driving measurable impact.

A sustainable future requires inclusive green jobs

We’ve seen an explosion in content about the climate and biodiversity crises. As we move toward a more sustainable future, transformation across all sectors will require a green transition.

Across many countries there are now ambitious plans to create millions of ‘green jobs’—vast new workforces who will transition us to a net-zero world. But what does a more inclusive green transition look like? And what does it mean to the next generation? Listen to youth leaders from around the globe to hear their perspective to help us all design a more inclusive green transition.
