Shaping the Future. Together.

Social Impact

At BCG, our social impact work seeks to make a difference beyond the business world.

Combining our private-sector expertise with our deep understanding of the social sector, we collaborate with clients to enhance their effectiveness in the causes they support. We focus on building capabilities and developing breakthrough ideas that deliver high-impact results and address some of the world's most pressing issues.


BCG’s Social Impact practice works with clients to bring broad experience and expertise to projects in a wide range of areas. Globally, we focus on issues faced by the developing world, supporting progress towards the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals through our long-term partnerships with key organizations. Our local social impact projects aim for a direct effect on the communities in which we live, and each BCG office selects its own partner organizations on the basis of the given community’s specific needs. more
