Leading professional services company, Accenture, has been doing its bit for the local North East coastline after a number of Accenture colleagues based in the area took part in a beach clean at Seaton Sluice. Led by Accenture associate director, David Darlington, the team put its commitment to the North East community into action as 20 Accenture colleagues spent over eight hours litter picking at the beach.

The beach clean was organised as part of Accenture’s Sustainability Value Promise, a strategy to embed sustainability into everything the company does as a means of helping to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Following the beach clean, Accenture worked with Soul2Sand - a local sand artist called Claire Eason - to produce an artistic recreation of the Accenture logo in the sand.

David Darlington said:
“At Accenture we want to play an active role in the community. The North East’s coastline is one of the country’s most beautiful sights, and we want to ensure it remains that way.”
