Accenture has announced its intention to buy Green Domus Desenvolvimento Sustentável LTDA, a prominent Brazil-based sustainability consultant. Green Domus has assisted customers in the design and implementation of a wide range of sustainability services, with a focus on provable decarbonisation plans. Green Domus is joining Accenture to strengthen its sustainability services team. The transaction's financial terms are not being disclosed.

Clients across industries are looking for new and improved ways to speed their net zero transitions, with only 7% of global enterprises on track to fulfill their net zero ambitions by 2050. Green Domus will provide clients with solutions to integrate carbon data and insights into their decision-making by leveraging deep knowledge of sustainability frameworks such as the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), voluntary carbon credits, and emerging regulatory schemes such as the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), which was recently launched in the EU.

"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, Accenture's Latin America Sustainability Services head. "These services will continue to transform industries and pave the way for unlocking growth and implementing more sustainable business models."

Green Domus was founded in 2005 and is based in Brazil. With two decades of industry experience, its decarbonization strategy knowledge has increased its carbon measurement and net zero transition capabilities across varied industries such as natural resources, agriculture, consumer products, and retail. “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.”

Accenture's latest sustainability-focused purchase, Green Domus, comes on top of the company's tremendous development of global capabilities through investment in people and attracting outstanding talent. Accenture is increasing its focus on producing long-term value and impact for clients by growing its capabilities in sustainability strategy, net zero transitions, and responsible value-chain transformations. Avieco, Carbon Intelligence, Greenfish, akzente, and Zestgroup are among the other notable sustainability services acquisitions.
