Accenture partners with Toshiba to provide consulting services to support companies’ client’s green transformation (GX) journey.
Accenture and Toshiba will work together to design and develop new sustainability services to drive emission reductions, strategies, and solutions for carbon neutrality. Accenture will leverage its experience developing circular-economy business models, implementing sustainable supply chain processes, such as green procurement, and using cloud and other technology solutions from its partner ecosystem.
Toshiba brings a strong stable of existing carbon-neutrality technologies and services to the partnership, including renewable energy systems, digital energy management systems, renewable energy-derived hydrogen solutions, and carbon dioxide capture and recovery facilities.
The collaboration will target industries with high greenhouse gas emissions and other organizations with urgent needs to improve energy efficiency.
Toshiba aims to achieve carbon neutrality throughout its entire value chain by fiscal 2050. It has set an initial goal for fiscal 2030 to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 70% from fiscal 2019.
The combination of Toshiba’s methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and Accenture’s expertise and capabilities in sustainability will result in vendor-neutral offerings to support clients’ emission reduction priorities. In addition, Accenture and Toshiba will evolve and refine their green transformation business model based on market trends and client needs.
Goro Yanase, representative executive officer, corporate senior executive vice president, and COO of Toshiba, said, “We are pleased to launch GX consulting services with Accenture. Toshiba Group provides technologies and services that contribute to solving social issues through our wide range of businesses, guided by our basic commitment — Committed to People, Committed to the Future. We are now building on this by developing capabilities and solutions that will contribute to realizing carbon neutrality and a circular economy. Working with Accenture, we hope to further expand our business and contribute to the realization of a carbon neutral society by providing consulting services that support companies with proposals extending from planning through to the achievement of carbon neutrality goals.”
Shinji Igarashi, senior managing director at Accenture in Japan, said, “Our work with Toshiba demonstrates our commitment to embed sustainability into everything we do. We focus on helping companies create business value and reduce their carbon footprint.”
