Accenture Sustainability Services expands its unique ability to use technology, science, data, and economics to drive sustainable impact for clients globally.
Accenture has acquired Carbon Intelligence, a leading carbon and climate change strategy consultancy, adding more than 160 professionals to its rapidly growing group of data scientists, consultants and sustainability experts. Carbon Intelligence is focused on helping global businesses understand their overall carbon footprints, and ways to reduce them, using Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) strategies that lead to transformational rethinking of clients’ business models and value chains.
Carbon Intelligence is Accenture’s fifth sustainability-focused acquisition in the last year, which comes in addition to the company’s significant expansion of its global capabilities through investing in its people and recruiting top talent. Accenture continues to place ever-greater emphasis on sustainability by expanding capabilities in sustainability strategy, supply chain transformation, and data-driven measurement of value and impact. Earlier this year, Accenture acquired Greenfish in France, Belgium and the Netherlands, akzente in Germany, Avieco in the UK and Zestgroup in the Netherlands.
