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 most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement: to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above preindustrial levels.
We are committed to supporting efforts at increasing the adoption of sustainable aviation fuel and decarbonizing air travel. Click below to learn more about our partnerships with these organizations.

BCG’s net-zero transition efforts have so far led to the following recognition.
Climate action is one of our most urgent challenges. As we partner with our clients to help them realize their net-zero strategies and navigate the low-carbon transition, we must also continue to change the way we operate as a firm. Our net-zero commitments and the climate investments we are making are evidence of the impact we are determined to have.
Our greatest opportunity to tackle the climate crisis comes from collaborating with our clients. The BCG Center for Climate & Sustainability partners with businesses and governments to help them transform commitments into action. Together, we can build a low-carbon environment and a more sustainable world, driving technological and economic transformations to realize sustainable competitive advantage.Learn more about our climate and sustainability work
