I recommend trying to get this achievement while also going for the Ghost Achievement. This should also coincide with the Poetic Justice achievement and the Just Dark Enough achievement. After each level, the box at the bottom of the Mission Summary screen should be checked where it says that no one was killed. The "Hostiles Killed" and "Civilians Killed" should also read 0 at the Mission Summary screen.

Beware of accidental deaths. This is most likely to occur in Mission 7, where some enemies are near the edges of large heights. Incapacitating them could result in them just falling off and dying, which could void the achievement. A good way to counter this is to pay attention where enemies land, move bodies, and saving often.

During my Ghost/ Clean Hands playthrough, I did not actively look for collectibles and skipped most of the side quests, such as the Granny Rags side missions. The only side missions you should do are ones that are directly involved in using the nonlethal means of eliminating the targets. The fewer interactions you have, the smaller your chances are of having anyone die by your hand.

Since you will not be killing anyone, all targets must be eliminated by indirect (nonlethal) means. All potential lethal interactions should be avoided also. This includes all of the following actions:

Mission 2:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Mission 3:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Mission 5:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Mission 6:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Mission 7:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Mission 8:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Mission 9:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

The only means of taking out enemies (besides targets) were a standard nonlethal takedown (holding cn_RB) and sleep darts from the crossbow.

I did not expect this guide to be this long when I started it, but this should give you a general idea of what is needed for this achievement. If you have any questions regarding this achievement, leave a comment or PM me.

The guide I'm posting will not only get you Ghost, it will get you completing the game in Low Chaos, NO kills at all, no upgrades at all and not alerting anyone.
Make sure the 2 boxes are ticked off at the end of each mission.
Save often in multiple save locations and make a save at the beginning of each level in case you don't get the boxes checked.
Also make sure you do everything as he does. In the second mission I think, I accidentally talked to the wrong person triggering a side quest, and when I failed that, it triggered an alarm so I had to redo the mission. It's at the very start of the mission before Samuel takes you to the city. If a girl talks to you at the top of the stairs, load the last checkpoint. ( actually there is a way to do it this way, but it's not covered in the video)
Posting the first video, the rest are in the side bar. He goes through the game really fast and I liked his commentary, you may not.
