BCG has partnered with Cambridge Judge Business School and Columbia Climate School. Intensive courses at these prestigious institutes will help the company's 25,000 employees learn about climate science and solutions. BCG helps the world's leading companies, agencies, and governments transition to a net-zero-emissions economy.

Curricula at Cambridge Judge Business School and Columbia Climate School were developed for BCG’s most dedicated climate and sustainability consultants. Weeklong intensive courses at each university, supported by virtual training, will cover several topics, from climate science to materials engineering and conservation. BCG plans to introduce an Asian university in 2023 and is expanding regional opportunities to lower the CO2 impact of its training and development activities.

Hubertus Meinecke, global leader for Climate and Sustainability at BCG, said: 

"Cambridge and Columbia universities can offer us the best scientific understanding of the climate crisis, the regulations, and technologies to address it. Combining that with BCG’s ability to translate insight into action, I believe we have a real chance to help our clients—and the world—win the race to net zero.”

Radley Horton, Lamont Research Professor at Columbia Climate School’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, said: 

"This programme is a two-way partnership. We are bringing cutting-edge climate research and the latest insights from the field, and BCG brings its expertise across sectors and practical realities to create a learning experience geared towards solutions that are actionable now.”

Christopher Marquis, who holds the Sinyi Chaired Professorship at the Judge Business School at Cambridge University, said: 

“The Climate & Sustainability Programme we offer combines the best of Cambridge and BCG. The curriculum draws on the leadership, change, and strategy expertise of the Cambridge Judge Business School and world-leading Cambridge scholars in climate science and other fields. We deliver the deep interdisciplinary experience needed to meet our day’s fundamental climate and sustainability challenges.”

BCG also has its own internal Climate & Sustainability Academy, which offers 100 hours of internal upskilling produced and guided by sustainability specialists and external climate thought leaders. Elements of this software will be made available to the company's clients in the near future.
