Making a measurable difference
By: Accenture Recruitment


We’ve released our 2014 Corporate Citizenship Report, "Making a Measurable Difference," which announces a series of goals for 2020 and highlights our efforts to collaborate with others to improve the way the world works and lives.

  • By the end of fiscal 2020, Accenture will pursue reduction of our per-employee carbon emissions by more than 50 percent against our fiscal 2007 baseline, and begin to measure and report the impact of our sustainability initiatives with clients and suppliers. Through our energy efficiency programs, we avoided nearly 2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide between fiscal 2007 and 2014.
  • Together with our strategic partners, Accenture plans to equip more than 3 million people with the skills to get a job or build a business by the end of fiscal 2020 through our Skills to Succeed initiative. Since fiscal 2011, we’ve equipped more than 800,000 people with workplace and entrepreneurial skills.

Accenture people are a driving force behind our charitable endeavors. In fiscal 2014, our people participated in nearly 600,000 hours of Accenture-sponsored corporate citizenship programs, up from 518,000 hours in 2013. We help our people maximize the impact of their personal contributions by providing convenient channels through which to offer time, services and financial assistance to help their communities.

The report also illustrates our commitment to advancing inclusion and diversity among our people and suppliers. We aim to continue growing our percentage of women new hires and develop and integrate more small, medium and diverse enterprises into our global supply chain.
