Accenture's Sustainability Value Promise

Through technology and human ingenuity, we are making sustainability a force for change

Sustainability is the new digital

Just as the digital revolution transformed how we live and work, so too will sustainability, driving new value and growth and permeating everything that we do.

At Accenture, our purpose is to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity. And there are few things with greater promise than sustainability—it unlocks new opportunities for our clients, our partners, and our people, and for the places where we do business.

Sustainability spans environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, from transitioning to a zero-carbon economy to human rights to inclusion and diversity. So we have made sustainability one of our greatest responsibilities-not just because it’s the right thing to do, but also because we believe that it will create the most powerful force for change in our generation.

Built in, not bolted on

Sustainability is multi-dimensional, and so is our approach. We deliver value—and deliver on our values—by embedding sustainability into everything we do, for everyone we serve: our clients, people, shareholders, partners and communities.

It’s about working together to help rewire the global economy for shared success.

Each element in our practice plays a role and intersects with the others to bring you 360° value while driving your ESG objectives forward.
