Organisations need to rethink their business and operating models as the impact of climate change drives a shift in investor, market, regulatory, customer and employees’ behaviour and expectations. However, many are struggling to implement sustainability across their entire operations.
We believe there is a massive opportunity. Leadership must therefore make holistic sustainability transformation a core priority, by empowering and mobilising people and resources for execution.
To help companies and organizations bring impact and sustainable transformation to the next level, we have integrated I Care, a consulting company specialized in sustainability into BearingPoint.
We, at BearingPoint, have been advising clients for more than decade on sustainability issues, focusing on the key challenges they, their people, their customers and their suppliers face.

Today’s customers want more than speed and quality from their brands. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) and diversity and inclusion (D&I) are key to customer demand. To meet that expectation, brands must deepen supply chain traceability; harnessing technology to get closer to their raw source materials and trace forward.
Leading brands are adopting a positive approach to the issues facing society today. Whether the considerations are environmental, ethical or social, firms are taking steps to humanize themselves with potentially far-reaching consequences.
This sea change is not just down to consumer demand. It’s also about a drive from companies themselves to live the values they claim publicly. So what’s needed to deliver in the 21st century?
The global health and economic crises have placed social and environmental issues near the top of most companies’ concerns which we have seen accelerating for two years now across all sectors. For more than ten years, we have been convinced that our responsibility as a consulting firm is to raise awareness on sustainable development and support organizations in implementing concrete actions.
