Bain & Company achieves carbon neutrality for the ninth year in a row

16th June 2020

NEW YORK – June 16, 2020– Bain & Company, one of the premier global business consulting firms, announced today it has achieved 100% CarbonNeutral® status for the ninth year in a row—an achievement few companies can claim, according to Natural Capital Partners, an internationally-recognized leading provider of carbon emission reduction and renewable energy solutions.

Since 2011, Bain & Company has reduced Scope 1 & 2 direct emissions by 68 percent, by converting to renewable electricity, improving the energy efficiency of its office spaces, and finding ways to reduce waste from its operations. The firm has set a goal to achieve a 90 percent reduction in emissions by 2040.

To achieve CarbonNeutral status, Bain & Company works with Natural Capital Partners and follows The CarbonNeutral Protocol which requires a rigorous and independent assessment of seven different greenhouse gas emissions, coupled with an offset-inclusive emissions reduction program.

“We are proud to again be recognized as a sustainability leader not only in our industry, but among global corporations,” said Sam Israelit, a partner with Bain & Company and the Environment lead in Bain’s Social Impact Practice. “We are continuously exploring new ways to reduce our environmental footprint, supporting the passions of our people, and helping our clients be better stewards of the environment.”
