Management consulting group gains green events accreditation




The Institute of Travel & Meetings (ITM) announced today that it has issued its second Bronze ICARUS accreditation this year to Accenture for implementing robust carbon dioxide reduction targets and processes across its travel and meetings programme.
 
The accreditation, established in 2007, is the second stage in the overall Project ICARUS Accreditation programme, and requires evidence of set targets and processes in line with the ICARUS pledge to encourage the reduction in business travel emissions from travel and meetings programmes in the UK.
 
Speaking on behalf of ITM, the founders of Project ICARUS, chief executive Paul Tilstone praised Accenture for its success to date and future plans.

“Accenture has consistently targeted emissions from its business travel programme, and has invested heavily in alternative technologies to support its reduction aims,” he said.

The accreditation lasts two years, after which the organisation must demonstrate emission reduction success, and subsequently re-apply or make a submission for increased accreditation at the next silver level, which requires absolute reduction commitment.
 
“We are delighted to be approved by ICARUS,” said Accenture in the UK and Ireland’s human capital and diversity lead, Ismail Amla. 

“As a professional services company, business travel represents a significant proportion of our overall emissions. People across the business have worked together to find ways to reduce our travel and increase productivity. Our ICARUS accreditation demonstrates that our approach meets the high standards the industry’s association has set.”
