BCG seeks to be the most positively impactful company in the world by driving sustainability transformations, building our team and capabilities, and growing a scalable social business.
Social impact and sustainability jobs have a positive effect on business and beyond.
Our theory of change holds that we can make progress by following three main avenues: appropriately regulated, profitable private sector solutions; solutions that are not profitable but need to be funded and supported by stakeholders; and the development and implementation of new and innovative solutions.
Every BCGer can have a career with impact—whether in a Social Impact and Sustainability job or by applying a societal impact lens to all of our work across practice areas, geographies, and business units. Together, we leverage the power of BCG to change the world.
Building your social impact consulting expertise.
To build your skills and expertise on social impact, you have access to a variety of options including our Social Impact people programs and fellowships.
Internal immersion programs:
Beyond working within our social impact or climate and sustainability practices, generalist consulting staff can have the opportunity to focus their case work entirely on social impact and sustainability topics for a full year.
As a participant you’ll contribute to the global and local social impact agenda, support clients on their journey towards sustainability, and contribute to build our practice area, advancing our ambition to be the most positively impactful company in the world.
External secondment opportunities:
To get more experience within social impact organizations, our consultants have the opportunity to deep-dive into the social sector by embedding in one of our global social impact partners or social ventures, for a period of up to 12 months.
We have provided social impact opportunities with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), WWF, Save the Children (SCI), Teach For All (TFALL), Yunus Social Business (YSB) and OpenSC.
