Accenture has revealed its intent to acquire Green Domus Desenvolvimento Sustentável LTDA, a Brazil-based sustainability consultancy with experience helping clients design and implement sustainability services with a focus on measurable decarbonization strategies.
The Green Domus acquisition marks the latest in a list of Accenture’s portfolio additions and will join the company to further enhance its Sustainability Services team.
Founded in 2005, Green Domus is headquartered in Brazil and works to deliver customized mitigation plans based on feasible reduction targets that can also reduce clients’ costs. Additionally, with its two decades of industry experience, the company has enhanced its carbon measurement and net zero transition capabilities across diverse industries, such as natural resources, agriculture, consumer goods and retail.
With only seven percent of global companies on track to meet their net zero targets by 2050, clients are seeking new ways to accelerate their net zero transitions. Green Domus will bring clients solutions to embed carbon data and insights into their decision-making through deep knowledge of sustainability frameworks such as Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), voluntary carbon credits and emerging regulatory schemes such as the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).
“Green Domus’ approach to measuring carbon emissions data and Accenture’s suite of advanced sustainability services, such as our net zero transition solutions, will support our clients in building resilient futures,” said Matthew Govier, Latin America Sustainability Services lead for Accenture. “These services will continue to transform industries and build a path forward for unlocking growth and adopting more sustainable business models.”
“Accenture’s scale and focus on sustainability will be critical to helping our clients address the disruption affecting our communities and planet,” said Felipe Bottini CEO of Green Domus. “Businesses are anticipating the impacts of this disruption along with increased regulatory compliance. By joining Accenture, we will use the latest technologies to collaboratively accelerate our ability to embed sustainability into long-lasting solutions that address global challenges such as decarbonization.”
