BOSTON—Boston Consulting Group (BCG), one of the world’s leading management consulting firms, has again been recognized on the prestigious CDP Climate A List.
CDP’s annual climate disclosure and assessment is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate climate transparency. The CDP Climate A List acknowledges companies that are leading the way on action to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks, and advance the low-carbon economy.
David Webb, the newly appointed Chief Sustainability Officer of BCG said, “We are extremely proud to have secured a place on the CDP Climate A List for the second year. We are energized to be helping our clients on their climate agendas, as well as leading by example through our own net-zero journey.”
A record-breaking 15,000 companies responded through the CDP disclosure program this year and BCG is one of a small number of companies that achieved a place on the A List. The award recognized companies that are committed to leading on corporate climate ambition, action, and transparency worldwide.
BCG is also recognized by CDP as a gold accredited provider in relation to climate change and science-based targets services and is currently partnering with CDP to build a technology platform to enable the exchange of Scope 3 data and accelerate decarbonization within ecosystems.
In September 2020, BCG became one of the first management consulting firms to announce a commitment to achieve net-zero climate impact by 2030. Since then, the firm has set science-based targets, transitioned to 100% renewable electricity across its global office portfolio, and announced new partnerships to advance crucial climate technologies including sustainable aviation fuel and direct air capture and storage. Beyond its own operations, the firm played a critical role driving global climate action as the exclusive consulting partner at both COP26 and COP27.
Dexter Galvin, Global Director of Corporations and Supply Chains at CDP, said, “Congratulations to all the companies on this year’s A List; environmental transparency is the first vital step towards a net-zero and nature-positive future. In a year of ever-increasing environmental concerns around the world – from extreme weather to unprecedented losses to nature – the need for transformational, urgent, and collaborative change is more critical than ever. We must decarbonize half of global GHG emissions and eliminate deforestation by 2030, alongside achieving water security on the same timescale – there is no route to 1.5°C without nature. As CDP continues to raise the bar on what qualifies as climate, forests, and water leadership, we hope to see the ambitions and actions of companies on the A List – and those wanting a place on it – do the same.”
