Executive Summary

This Green Quadrant® report provides a detailed and fact-based comparison of 16 of the leading sustainable technology service providers globally. The analysis is based on interviews with 15 buyers representing firms with revenues of $183 billion, supplier responses to a 53 point questionnaire and detailed supplier interviews. The study finds that the most popular sustainability projects today are energy reduction, environmental management and sustainability performance reporting, but leading firms now look towards enterprise-wide transformational initiatives that will increase revenue and improve their brand and reputation. The objective, fact-based analysis concludes that four suppliers currently lead the market: Accenture, CGI, Deloitte and IBM. These four suppliers offer the broadest and deepest set of capabilities and can best meet firms’ needs as they design and implement their transformational sustainability strategy programmes.
