Yuichi Kitao, president and representative director of Kubota Corporation, said, “Since its foundation, Kubota has been working to solve social issues related to the essential needs of food, water, and the environment. In recent years, food and water shortages, climate change, and other global issues have been presenting increasingly complex and diverse challenges.
These challenges require holistic solutions that leverage digital technology. As part of its commitment to being a platform provider that supports life, the well-being of society, and a sustainable environment, Kubota will take on the challenge of contributing to these solutions while still achieving business growth. With this joint venture with Accenture at the lead, we will accelerate the development of new solutions, strengthen our business foundation, and continually create corporate value.”
Atsushi Egawa, who leads Accenture’s business in Japan, said, “Accenture aims to create 360° value for all our stakeholders—our clients, people, shareholders, partners, and communities. Kubota is a leader in addressing global issues in the areas of food, water, and the environment, so this joint venture with them embodies Accenture’s philosophy. Together we will continue to strive towards a sustainable society by fully leveraging our strengths, including the utilization of data, cloud, and AI, as well as the development of DX human resources.”
