Consumer Products Industry

Digital transformation, once a necessary journey, is now an urgent priority for consumer products brands. Starting with a deep understanding of your business, BCG’s consumer products consultants help clients find the right use cases to develop the digital capabilities that power consumer-centric innovation.

We begin our consumer products consulting services by partnering with you to define, test, and prove how advanced data collection and analysis, AI, digital supply chain, and other enhancements will create value—before expanding or embedding these capabilities in your operating model. We automate what’s transactional and create cross-functional teams to harness the ingenuity and innovation you’ll need to meet consumers’ changing demands.

The Journey to Net Zero

June 12, 2024, 11:30 am–12:15 pm, CT

Facilitator: BCG's Anastasia Kouvela
Featuring: Antoine De Saint-Affrique (CEO, Danone); Nina Jonsoon (CEO, ICA); Scott Price (Group Chief Executive, DFI Retail Group); Ramon Laguarta (Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer, PepsiCo); Cécile Beliot-Zind (CEO, Bel Group)

Achieving net zero requires a comprehensive approach that encompasses transitioning to renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, implementing carbon capture and storage technologies, and promoting sustainable practices across various sectors such as transportation, agriculture, and industry. It demands collaboration between governments, businesses, and individuals to enact policies, invest in innovation, and adopt sustainable behaviors. As the urgency of addressing climate change becomes increasingly apparent, the pursuit of net zero has emerged as a critical pathway towards building a more resilient and sustainable future for generations to come.
