Over the past 60 years, BCG has grown from one individual in a room to a company with more than 30,000 employees across the globe. Throughout that time, we’ve maintained an unwavering commitment to our corporate purpose—to unlock the potential of those who advance the world.
BCG has shaped the field of business strategy while delivering sustained impact through our work with clients. We bring together diverse, global teams to tackle today’s most urgent challenges, including climate and sustainability, disruptive technologies, and ongoing economic uncertainty.
We've partnered with our clients and our collective community to address complex global problems, create economic growth and sustainable value, and have a positive impact on lives and livelihoods. And while it’s hard to quantify, here are a few examples of our collective impact:
Guided by the belief that we grow ourselves by growing others, we operate as a school for talent to shape the leaders, thinkers, and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. We prioritize collaboration, challenge the status quo, and continually strive to change lives and create socially transformative businesses that align profit with purpose. And we always aim to lead with integrity, an approach that is steeped in our values and reinforced generation after generation. That 60-year-old tradition of honesty and transparency has earned us the trust of our clients, our partners, our people, and our communities.
Our Annual Sustainability Report details the steps we took in 2022—expanding our reach and impact through our client work and through the transformation of our own operations—to address important societal and planetary challenges and to help shape a brighter future for business, the planet, and its eight billion people. The report breaks down our sustainability approach, which focuses on four key pillars: driving social impact, protecting our planet, empowering our people, and promoting responsible business practices.
Our commitment to finding and catalyzing effective solutions to pressing societal issues is at the heart of our company’s purpose. We bring world-class expertise to the work of addressing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, helping organizations develop and focus their social impact agendas and partnering with them to build their capabilities and maximize their impact and effectiveness. We help our clients leverage their core business assets and operations to drive positive societal impact in ways that enhance their sustainable competitive advantage, and we do so by focusing on six key areas:
Combating the climate crisis is the defining challenge of our time and a top priority for BCG. We are partnering with businesses and governments to help them transform and build a more sustainable and resilient world. This is the right move, not just for the good of the planet but also for the long-term sustainability of our clients. BCG is committed to shaping the global agenda through our climate partnerships and to leading by example by making progress on our own net zero transformation.
We have committed to reach net zero climate impact by 2030, a significant step in our internal commitment to sustainability. Here are some of our key targets in this area:
We aim to be the employer of choice by offering an unparalleled employee experience and by creating an environment that allows our people to thrive personally and professionally. Our mission is to unlock the potential of diversity, equity, and inclusion at BCG. We know that diverse teams with inclusive and equitable work practices strengthen our organization, allowing us to better support our clients and advance justice, dignity, and belonging.
Commitment to responsible and ethical practices defines our approach to business and engagement. We consider this long-standing commitment critical to the success of our clients and our firm. We strive to transform business and society for the better, in collaboration with our clients and suppliers and in our own operations, always guided by BCG’s values and purpose.
BCG’s ‘Speak Up’ Line
As part of our effort to lead with integrity and to prevent and identify misconduct, BCG offers a reporting option called Speak Up. As an alternative to sending concerns directly to one of our senior leaders, our Speak Up line provides employees, customers, suppliers, and any other third parties an opportunity to report suspected violations of applicable law and BCG policies. BCG confidentially reviews concrete reports and forwards them to appropriate external parties if warranted. Users can remain anonymous when submitting a report, unless they choose otherwise.
