The Future of Work
BearingPoint is proud to participate in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Ambition program, with a firmwide ambition of a Net Zero future. Across every area of our operations and the wider ecosystem, we are working hard to reduce our impact on the planet. Covid-19 has proved that remote collaboration is possible and effective, and this will be reflected in the amount of travel we undertake in the future. We are continuously assessing our travel-related CO2 footprint and we compensate for our emissions with investment in a REDD++ project in Brazil. But at the same time, we know that compensation alone is certainly not enough to address CO2 emissions. We are also working on tracking and reducing our IT and office emissions. And operations from a sustainability perspective is a key consideration when considering suppliers through our procurement process.
Our CSR Community includes Sustainability working groups and Sustainability Agents, who are passionate and driven to promote the climate action agenda within BearingPoint and for our clients. As a consulting firm we are aware that the biggest impact we can make is in supporting our clients on their journey to sustainability. Through our consultancy, business services, IP, and assets we are enabling our clients to deal with climate-related, environmental, and social challenges, and helping them to realise the full potential and benefits of sustainability in their core business. For example, our specialist strategy and innovation team, YouMeO by BearingPoint, is working with a global leader in the automotive industry to co-create their roadmap for sustainability. Our Emissions Calculator, a BearingPoint IP, is another core capability; by gathering accurate emissions data, we enable our clients to understand their footprint, define measures, and track progress on emission reduction. In addition, Purpose Strategy, Sustainable Finance, and Sustainable Supply Chain Assessments are all increasingly present in client projects.
