Sustainability Report 2022

Our Commitments

Over the past 60 years, BCG has grown from one individual in a room to a company of more than 30,000 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.

Guided by the belief that we ourselves grow 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.

Expanding Our Reach, Enhancing Our Impact

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 8 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.
