29 May 2023 2 min. read

Accenture has purchased Green Domus, a São Paulo-based sustainability consultancy with around 30 staff.

Founded in 2005, Green Domus helps clients design and implement a range of sustainability services with a focus on measurable decarbonization strategies. The firm’s offerings span the sustainability lifecycle, from strategy and product assessments, to materiality assessments, sustainability measurement and performance, tracking and analytics.

“Green Domus helps its clients embed carbon data and insights into their decision-making through deep knowledge of sustainability frameworks such as Science Based Targets initiative, voluntary carbon credits and emerging regulatory schemes such as the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism,” said Matthew Govier, Sustainability Services lead Latin America at Accenture.

“Their expertise in measuring carbon emissions will expand our sustainability and net zero transition services, ultimately supporting our clients in building resilient futures,” he added.

The deal comes shortly after Accenture research warned that only 7% of global companies are on track to meet their net zero targets by 2050. “While adopting more sustainable business models for unlocking growth and adhering to compliance is top of mind, leaders should ensure that they have the necessary governance and measurement processes in place, in order to drive the green transition.”

Green Domus is Accenture’s latest sustainability-focused acquisition. Other recent sustainability services acquisitions include Avieco, Carbon Intelligence, Greenfish, akzente, and Zestgroup.

“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. “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.”
