Accenture has acquired Carbon Intelligence, a carbon and climate change strategy consultancy, for an undisclosed sum.

The consultancy is focused on helping businesses understand their overall carbon footprint and ways to reduce them using Science-based Targets initiative (SBTi) strategies.

Carbon Intelligence is Accenture’s fifth sustainability-focused acquisition in the last year, expanding capabilities in sustainability strategy, supply chain transformation and data-driven measurement of value and impact.

It is part of Accenture’s commitment to embed sustainability into everything the company does and with everyone it works with.

Its previous acquisitions include Greenfish in France, Belgium and the Netherlands, akzente in Germany, Avieco in the UK and Zestgroup in the Netherlands.

Peter Lacy, Accenture’s global Sustainability Services lead and Chief Responsibility Officer said: “Carbon Intelligence expands our expertise in carbon strategy and delivery, building on the insights of our recently created global carbon intelligence network.

“We continue deepening our global capabilities in sustainability – one of the forces that companies must harness to lead in the next decade – in areas that are crucial for the energy transition. Alongside this we are embedding 360-degree value for our stakeholders with our growing number of partners, venture investments and most importantly, our clients.”
