Sustainable Energy for All: Accenture, in collaboration with the United Nations Global Compact worked with over 70 Global Compact-member companies to  define the role of, and the value proposition to, the private sector with regards to engaging and supporting Sustainable Energy for All. Work was focused in the areas of

Providing access to energy in areas where it doesn’t exist;

Increasing the investment in and development of  Renewable energy generation, and;

Investing in and implementing energy efficiency programs. The analysis and recommendations where conducted and presented across 19 individual industries based on unique energy generation and consumption profiles.

Energy Access for Development Impact:  To capitalize on the SE4ALL insights, Accenture Development Partnerships established the Energy Access for Development Impact (EADI) initiative. Through the EADI commitment, Accenture seeks to increase the impact that it can have in international development by focusing on several key factors:

Leverage Accenture’s capabilities, assets and client network to provide skills and connections

Going beyond a traditional fee for service model, to develop and deliver projects in true partnership, with cross sector co-investment and shared value

Developing solutions with sustainable business models to ensure that the solutions are both scalability and replicable

PartnershipAccenture Development Partnerships brings experience with the world’s leading international development NGO’s, bi-lateral and multilateral donor organizations, and emerging governments, having completed hundreds of projects in developing nations, finding new ways to address development imperatives and to have a positive social impact. This experience bridges the gap between technical expertise in development and on-the-ground solutions.  The Energy Access for Development Impact (EADI) team is constituted of development professionals and energy industry practitioners. The team works to develop sustainable energy projects that are scalable and underpinned by sustainable business models.  Accenture Sustainability Services brings experience in sustainability strategy, sustainable energy, operational excellence, and intelligent infrastructure, along with a deep understanding of the challenges that private sector led solutions may face.
The wide range of experience that Accenture brings provides a basis for catalyzing cross-sectoral partnerships that bring sustainable energy, such as clean cookstoves, solar lighting products or microgrid electrification, to under-developed communities and raise living standards. 

We are committed to advancing the goals of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves and we would welcome the opportunity to continue our work together to catalyse cross-sectoral partnerships between the private sector, civil society, and the public sector to help create a thriving sustainable global market for clean cookstoves.
