This is the decade of delivering on the promise of digital and technology—a time to redefine growth and work in new ways.

Delivering shared success

The time for increased commitment and action is now, and SDG Ambition is a bold and practical response to this timely and urgent call to action.

Developing a responsible supply chain

We work with our suppliers to advance key priorities—including environmental sustainability, human rights, inclusion, diversity and social innovation—while advancing our partnerships with suppliers and forging greater engagement and collaboration.

As a result, we can lower barriers for smaller and more diverse suppliers, promote shared values and cultivate a culture of responsible buying.


Living our core values

At Accenture, how we achieve success is as important as success itself.

Our governance structure, Leadership Essentials, well-defined Code of Business Ethics and Conduct Counts program are all designed to help ensure that our people live our core values.


Partnering with the UN Global Compact SDG Ambition

In January 2020, we announced SDG Ambition, our partnership with the UNGC and SAP, to challenge and support companies in integrating the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into their core business and make shared success a reality.

Integrating the UN SDGs into our core business will help solve critical challenges in health, human rights, inclusion and environmental sustainability as well as unleash innovation that will create enduring value for all our stakeholders.

Learn more about our analysis of the SDGs, identifying the four highest-priority SDGs and 10 supporting key targets where we believe we can make the most significant contributions from our operations in our Corporate Citizenship Report.
