Our founder, Bruce Henderson, was fond of quoting Archimedes: “Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I will move the world.” Our Social Impact practice is the lever with which BCG makes the world a better place.
We work with organizations in the social, public, and private sectors to deliver frame-breaking solutions to some of the most complex problems in contemporary society.
Increasingly, we are working with our private-sector clients to transform their capacity to deliver positive social impact. We help them expand their aspiration; think beyond traditional initiatives for corporate social responsibility, sustainability, or corporate philanthropy; and incorporate total societal impact (TSI) as an integral part of their corporate and business strategies.
To communicate our excitement about social impact work, BCGers have been telling their personal stories on LinkedIn. Explore the experiences of our consultants in the field.
Of the many societal responsibilities facing each firm, addressing climate change must increasingly rise to the top of all our lists. And we don’t just need to improve; we need to do more now.
Within ten years, nearly 2 billion people will face water scarcity. By 2050, half of the global population lives in water-stressed areas. BCG's Daan Smits shares how businesses can help.
