The Boston Consulting Group
BCG is a global management consulting firm and the world's leading advisor on business strategy. We partner with clients in all sectors and regions to identify their highest-value opportunities, address their most critical challenges, and transform their businesses. Our customized approach ensures that our clients achieve sustainable competitive advantage, build more capable organizations, and secure lasting results. We seek to be agents of change for our clients, our people, and society broadly.
How can a large pharmaceutical company achieve major cost savings in its global supply chain? What is the most effective way for a leading financial-services player to significantly expand its retail-banking business? High-level, strategic questions such as these defy easy answers and textbooksolutions, particularly in today’s complex business environment. Yet they are the types of questions that strategy consultants are called upon by clients to answer. And clients expect more than simply an accurate diagnosis of the problem: they want a practical, effective path to implement—one that can generate real bottom-line results and sustainable competitive advantage.
Social impact work at BCG
Approximately 2.7 billion people, nearly half the world's population, exist on less than $2 a day, with about 1 billion of them living on less than $1 a day. BCG's involvement in social impact work is motivated by eye-opening facts such as this. Because we possess expertise that is capable of making a difference, we are compelled to work with humanitarian organizations to impact local communities and the world at large.
At the global level, we have chosen our areas of focus based on the U.N. Millennium Development Goals and we have been privileged to partner with the World Food Programme, Save the Children, and several organizations in the global health arena. At the local level, each BCG office chooses its own initiatives and finds organizations with which to partner. Our local social-impact work includes launching a cancer care hospital in Hong Kong, starting a transformation effort with the school district of Chicago, improving the operation of a German zoo, and helping an organization that works on behalf of troubled youths in Sweden.
