BCG’s Net-Zero Strategy

BCG has committed to reach net-zero climate impact by 2030 and then to become climate positive—removing more carbon from the atmosphere than we emit each year.

While our single greatest climate impact will come through our net-zero consulting—supporting clients as they navigate the net-zero transition and helping them thrive in a low-carbon economy—we also want to lead by example by reducing the negative climate impact of our own operations and value chain.

The world needs to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, but those that can move faster should do so. Therefore, we increased the ambition of our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions targets, committing to cut our emissions intensity in half by 2025. This goal has been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative as aligned with the aim of the Paris Agreement: to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above preindustrial levels.


A Three-Step Net-Zero Strategy

Our Sustainability Journey

Climate action is one of our most urgent challenges. As we partner with clients to help them realize their net-zero ambitions, we must also continue to change the way we operate as a firm.
