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.
Chief Executive Officer
Today’s rapid acceleration to digital presents us with a breakthrough opportunity to create a better future for all. We embed responsible business into everything we do—from how we service our clients as well as how we operate as a responsible business.
We are continually innovating to find new ways to put individuals at the center of what we do and are using our expertise to build a more-inclusive future in which everyone can thrive.
We’ll focus first on actual reductions in our emissions and will invest in nature-based solutions that will remove carbon from the atmosphere.
By 2025, we’ll reuse or recycle all our e-waste and office furniture. We’re committed to eliminating single-use plastics in our locations post-COVID.
By 2025, we’ll develop plans to reduce the impact of flooding, drought and water scarcity on our business and our people in high-risk areas.
To break the stigma surrounding mental wellness, we created Thriving Mind—a holistic well-being program for our people developed in partnership with Stanford Medicine and Thrive Global.
Our Accessibility Center of Excellence and new Adjustment Request Tool reduces barriers to accessibility and enables our people with disabilities to succeed at work.
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.
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.
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.
