Just as the digital revolution transformed how we live and work, so too will sustainability, driving new value and growth and permeating everything that we do. At Accenture, our purpose is to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity. And there are few things with greater promise than sustainability—it unlocks new opportunities for our clients, our partners, and our people, and for the communities where we do business. From making ambitious commitments that align with climate science to encouraging our suppliers and our people to take eco-positive actions, we are dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint—and these actions also help reduce our impact on our clients’ emissions. Sustainability spans beyond environmental to social and governance (ESG) issues, from transitioning to a zero-carbon economy to human rights to inclusion and diversity. So we have made sustainability one of our greatest responsibilities - not just because it’s the right thing to do, but also because we believe that it is one of the most powerful forces for change in our generation.
