For one large mining company, a commitment to operating efficiently and sustainably is at the center of everything it does.
This commitment, along with a strong focus on digital enablement, fuels all of its objectives, including implementing autonomous operations, pushing for greater carbon (CO₂) reduction and improving the communities in which it operates. It’s therefore no surprise that it saw a move to the cloud as a potential way to further these important goals.
As the company began its transition to the cloud, it needed to better understand its CO₂ footprint, especially emissions in its data centers, and how its ongoing cloud transition could contribute to emission reductions. With Accenture’s help, the company would develop a clear emissions profile for its data centers, create tactical recommendations for its cloud strategy and better understand how a cloud migration could unlock economic, operational and environmental value.
