Toshiba partners with Accenture to support clients’ green transformation

The pair are hoping to target industries with high greenhouse gas emissions and provide sustainability services to drive emission reductions

Toshiba and Accenture are collaborating to offer consulting services to support the green transformation (GX) efforts of the Japanese company’s clients.

The partnership is set to target industries with high greenhouse gas emissions and other organisations with urgent needs to improve energy efficiency, the companies said yesterday.

Accenture will work with the Japanese giant to design and develop new sustainability services to drive emission reductions, as well as strategies for carbon neutrality. It will also use its experience from implementing sustainable supply chain processes, like green procurement, as well as using cloud and other technology products from its partner ecosystem.

Toshiba will provide its carbon-neutrality technologies and services to the collaboration, including renewable energy systems, digital energy management systems, renewable energy-derived hydrogen solutions, and carbon dioxide capture and recovery facilities.

“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,” said Goro Yanase, representative executive officer, corporate senior executive vice president and COO at Toshiba. “We are now building on this by developing capabilities and solutions that will contribute to the realisation of carbon neutrality and a circular economy. 

“Working with Accenture, we hope to further expand our business and contribute to the realisation 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.”

Additionally, the Japanese company is hoping to achieve carbon neutrality throughout its entire value chain by 2050. It has set a preliminary goal for 2030 of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 70% from 2019 levels.

The two companies hope the partnership will help support clients’ emission reduction priorities. The pair will also evolve and refine their green transformation business model based on market trends and client needs.

Other organisations have been bolstering their green offerings recently as part of a sustainability drive. Google Cloud, for example, boosted its “Google Cloud Ready – Sustainability’ programme in September 2022, by adding 12 new partners. The expansion brought several new features including fleet routing, air quality management, and water scarcity.

The move helps to enhance Google Cloud’s capabilities and simplifies the adoption of technologies like Google Earth Engine and BigQuery, which it says will help clients lower their carbon footprints.
