Sustainability across the economy: Bain & Company joins WBCSD

Geneva - January 31, 2017 – Global management consultancy Bain & Company has today joined nearly 200 forward-thinking companies as the newest member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

Bain & Company offers management consultancy services to many of the world's leading business leaders. Bain advises clients on strategy, operations, information technology, organization, private equity, digital transformation and strategy, and mergers and acquisitions, developing practical insights that clients act on and transferring skills that make change stick.

By connecting with WBCSD’s network of forward-thinking businesses, across a variety of sectors, Bain can make a real impact in global corporate sustainability.

Jenny Davis-Peccoud, partner at Bain and head of the firm’s global Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility practice stated: “At Bain, we are deeply committed to working hand-in-hand with our clients on their most crucial business issues, and sustainability is one of the most important. Our research has found that progress in this area is challenging with only 2 percent of companies managing to achieve their goals in sustainability. We are proud that our work has delivered real sustainability results and are excited to collaborate with WBCSD members to reach even greater heights.”

WBCSD President and CEO Peter Bakker said, “I am delighted to see Bain & Company making sustainability a key corporate priority.
