Responsibility

BearingPoint's corporate social responsibility strategy (CSR) strategy includes our responsibilities to our people, our society and our planet. We apply our business and technology consulting skills and solutions to help our charity partners make a greater impact. We do this across 4 key areas; Strategy, Operations, Digital and Data & Technology. To ensure we maximise our impact our strategy is delivered through the BearingPoint Foundation, a virtual organisation through which the Firm will channel pro bono consulting, donations and asset licenses to charities aligned with our purpose.

BearingPoint Corporate Social Responsibility

BearingPoint Foundation

As a Firm we have a have a distinct Social Purpose to support the understanding and development of the human mind. We deliver this Social Purpose by working with charities who transform people's lives, enabling them to access education, grow self-confidence and achieve their potential by developing IQ and EQ. We also support charities who work to address mental well-being so they can cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and fruitfully, and make a contribution to their community. Furthermore, we are investing in research and cures to provide support for sufferers of brain related diseases e.g. Alzheimer's, Dementia. BearingPoint Foundation

We invest 1% of the firm's annual profits through the Foundation – consisting of both time and money. This investment is to help charities or non-for-profit organisations by giving our time and expertise, focusing our research and applying our assets.

 

CSR

The desire to "give something back" is important to us and we are proud to have worked with several partners over the past few years, for example Impetus-PEF and Shannon Trust in the UK. Impetus Image

We got involved with the Impetus-PEF because we knew this would mean our projects would be part of a bigger programme of work that was already taking charities on a journey of growth rather than just a single intervention. 

We have helped the Shannon Trust with several strategy days over the past few years culminating in us undertaking a pro-bono engagement to discover their Shannon Trustjourney towards becoming a social enterprise, in order to fund their work with helping prisoners to read. Excitingly, they have now begun to implement this strategy! They have started with the approval of their reading scheme, a uniquely designed set of books and training material aimed at adults to help them learn to read, to find out more click here

We are constantly trying to find ways to reduce our impact on the environment, with new ideas always being generated, last year we introduced our own re-usable bags for people to use at lunch, reducing our contribution to the 12.5 million tonnes of paper and cardboard used in the UK each year.

In the UK we hold several fundraising events each year, ranging from regular favourites such as the Pub Quiz to one-off, larger events such as the Three Peaks Challenge. All the money raised currently goes to 3 UK charities, selected by our employees; Alzheimer’s Society, Rethink Mental Illness and Mencap.
