To help tackle climate change, advance racial equity, transition to a circular economy, boost economic development, create food systems and security, embrace large-scale renewables and clean technology, accelerate sustainable finance and investing, and build sustainable supply chains, BCG helps clients transform their business models to optimize for societal and business value. With businesses facing more pressure than ever to rethink their role in society and improve their impact on people and the planet, BCG is looking for a variety of consultants across tenures and topics to help our clients take on difficult challenges when it comes to climate and sustainability.

At BCG you will become a pivotal member of our consulting team, working alongside some of the world’s top minds on the forefront of climate and sustainability strategy. You will collaborate closely with team members from many backgrounds, advising clients across industries on how best to reduce emissions and reach their sustainability goals.

To capitalize on the momentum and growth, current openings span levels and areas of expertise, meaning the type of work you will focus in could vary. Experts focus on developing BCG’s thought leadership, commercial capabilities, and intellectual property assets; and their work is essential to our delivery model.

BCG Project Leaders and Principals lead case teams, engage with and present to senior clients, direct projects to define client needs, manage project scoping and work module development, supervise research activities, and participate in business development. They oversee the formulation of hypotheses for research and investigation, as well as advanced analysis to identify opportunities. They work closely with clients to solidity their competitive advantage and drive value on multiple levels: societal and sustainability value, financial impact, organizational transformation, enhanced effectiveness and digitalization, improved supplier collaboration and optimized risk management. Project Leaders and Principals are also responsible for continuously developing the firm’s knowledge and capabilities and play a key role in the development and maintenance of high-level client relationships.

Practice Area Profile

BCG works with organizations in the social, public, and private sectors to deliver frame-breaking solutions to some of the most complex problems in contemporary society. In total, BCG delivers over 350 social impact projects to more than 200 organizations annually.
