Social Impact is a core part of our work at The Boston Consulting Group and we dedicate significant resources every year to address some of the most complex problems in contemporary society. Both on a global level and in local offices, we work together with our partners across sectors and topics to make the world a better place. Throughout 2018, the BCG office in Copenhagen worked with many partners to address a wide range of societal issues.

Yet current efforts are fragmented and Denmark needs new ways to deliver these results.
