When it comes to making a real difference on environmental issues, we believe the greatest impact we can have is by mobilizing our people, our clients, our suppliers and our ecosystem partners to innovate for a more sustainable future.
Our Eco Innovation Challenge is just one way we’re taking action.
More than 2,300 people in 38 countries shared 1,200+ ideas to tackle seven of the world's greatest environmental challenges: Circular Packaging, Clean Energy at Home, Climate Resilience, Future of Food, Green(er) Supply Chains, Rewilding Land and Sustainable Cloud.
The winners, selected by a panel of our leaders, as well as participating clients, startups and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), will now go on to receive support from the Social Innovators Accelerator program to take their ideas forward and make them a reality.
Diving deeper into one of the winners in the Climate Resilience category takes us into the depths of the coral reefs.
What started as an internal project, fueled by personal interests to make a positive change, soon turned into a full-on collaboration between Accenture and the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS)—Australia’s tropical marine research agency—to support their wider coral reef monitoring efforts and accelerate global protection of coral reefs. Melanie Angerer, Digital Strategy Manager in Sydney, is a member of Project Coral-ation, winner of the grand challenge Climate Resilience.
Together with her team, Melanie is integrating global coral reef monitoring efforts into a unified AI-powered platform to foster collaboration across scientists, governments, communities and the private sector.
Accenture’s commitments to climate action include:
Achieving a sustainable future for all means working toward shared success: understanding all our stakeholders; connecting the power of technology, human ingenuity and business value; and accelerating technology-led transformation.
Make an impact. Find your fit.
