For Accenture – and our clients – driving sustainable economic growth is an essential part of what we do. A low-carbon economy improves the way the world works and lives by helping to foster environmental sustainability and by creating jobs around the world.
We are committed to fostering environmental awareness and responsibility among our people, clients and suppliers and to incorporating leading environmental practices into our business strategy and operations. In fact, fiscal 2014 was the most energy-efficient year in our company’s history, with achievements that include saving 530,000 total megawatt-hours of electricity and avoiding more than 330,000 metric tons of related CO2 since setting our fiscal 2007 baseline.
But we’re not stopping there. By the end of fiscal 2020, we will reduce our per employee carbon emissions by more than 50 percent against our 2007 baseline, and to improve our energy efficiency by 30 percent.
It is this commitment – and our focus on continuous improvement – that has earned us a position on “The Climate A List” by CDP, the international not-for-profit that drives sustainable economies. This is the second year in a row our efforts have been recognized.
