Sustainability at Accelleron

When we talk about sustainability at Accelleron, we describe how we integrate environmental and social issues into our business model and contribute to realizing the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. Our definition of sustainability embraces the interconnectivity of environmental, social, and economic impacts. In Accelleron’s sustainability strategy, these three topics are represented by three pillars: People, Products & Services and Planet. We call this our 3P approach.

Paris Climate Agreement as Framework

The Paris Climate Agreement was adopted at COP 21 in December 2015 with the central goal of holding “the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels” and pursuing efforts “to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C.” For Accelleron, the implications are clear: Like other entities, businesses must take forceful measures to reduce the negative effects on the environment, on society and on the business. The reports of the IPCC have continued to emphasize the urgent need to reduce humanity’s GHG emissions. At Accelleron, we acknowledge the Paris Climate Agreement as a clear call to action. That is why we have made it a focal point of our sustainability strategy.
