We are all more aware than ever before of the responsibility we have to address the climate and biodiversity crises. At Accenture, 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 will create one of the most powerful forces for change in our generation. Communities truly hold the power to be catalysts for real change. This initiative provides an opportunity for individuals to come together to create more resilient, engaged and sustainable communities, while accelerating the transition to a greener society and economy at a local and national level. We’re thrilled to be able to play a small part – through our support of the Change X “Accenture Sustainable Community Challenge” - in empowering community action in Ireland and helping local leaders play a vital part in protecting, enhancing and restoring our natural environment countrywide.
