Environment

Fostering sustainable economic growth for our company and our stakeholders is at the heart of our environmental strategy.

Our Journey

Accenture has long understood the need to minimize the impact of our operations in an energy- and carbon-constrained world. Since 2007, when we first quantified our carbon footprint, our commitment has continued to evolve and grow. Today, we build and test innovations like cloud computing that inherently reduce environmental impact.

Our environmental strategy focuses on three areas: running efficient operations that reduce emissions and other impacts; enabling client and supplier sustainability; and engaging our people, leaders, partners and other stakeholders.

We use digital technology to collaborate, learn and connect with our teams and our clients, while reducing the cost, time and necessity of travel and travel-related carbon emissions.

Environmental stewardship is ingrained in our Code of Business Ethics and our core values, specifically Stewardship. These inform our Environmental Responsibility Policy, which our Environment Steering Group (ESG) established in 2007, updated in 2014, and reviews annually.

Accountability for our environmental strategy starts with our Chairman & CEO and cascades to our governance bodies, which oversee our environmental policy and corporate objective of fostering environmentally sustainable growth.

"Not only is accelerating the shift to a low-carbon economy good for the planet, it will drive economic growth and create jobs around the world. I am extremely proud of the ongoing commitment of Accenture and our people to help improve the way the world works and lives."
