NEW YORK; April 16, 2019 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has published its 2018 Corporate Citizenship Report, which details how the company innovates to improve the way the world works and lives.

“As the pace of innovation disrupts what it means to be a responsible business, organizations must take a leadership role in positively contributing to society at a scale that makes a difference,” said Laurence Morvan, Accenture’s corporate social responsibility officer and also chief of staff — office of the CEO. “With the passion of our people, our technology expertise and a diverse ecosystem of partners, we are driving innovations and programs that help address society’s pressing problems.”

Accenture’s 2018 report illustrates the company’s commitment to purpose-driven innovation across the two pillars of its global corporate citizenship focus: Innovating for Society and Shaping Responsible Business.
