Primary Climate Goal
Accenture's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2025 should be equal to 0 Kt = 0% * 26 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Accenture would need to reduce its emissions at least by -8.7 Kt per annum over the period from 2023 to 2025:
-8.7 Kt = ( 0 Kt - 26 Kt ) / (2025 - 2022)
This translates into a -33% reduction in 2023.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.
Accenture aims to achieve net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2025
Science Based Targets initiative In October 2021 SBTi developed and launched world's first net zero standard, providing framework and tools for companies to set science-based net zero targets and limit global temperature rise above pre-industrial levels to 1.5 °C.

GHG emissions and Carbon intensity
Scope 1 + 2 GHG emissions (in tons of CO2e) divided by the company's Revenues (in USDm) for the same period
Accenture reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 30 September 2022 at 26 Kt (-54 /-67.3% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity declined to 0.4 t (-1.2 /-75% y-o-y).
Accenture's Scope 3 emissions increased to 374 Kt (
The company is committed to achieving net zero for Scope 1 + 2 by 2025, which translates into the estimated reduction of -8.7 Kt per annum over the period of FY2023 - FY2025. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
Accenture also has a science-based goal that, however, does not appear to explicitly target a company-wide reduction in emissions in absolute terms. Accenture commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 80% by FY2030 from a FY2019 base year. Accenture also commits to reduce scope 3 GHG emissions 55% per unit of revenue within the same timeframe.
