We share our clients' ambitions. We work to understand their reality and deliver true results—focusing on strategic decisions and practical actions. And we align our incentives with our clients’ objectives, so they know we’re in it together. The client stories below are just a few examples of how we've helped organizations realize, and often exceed, their goals.
Sustainability strategy: Bain developed a strategy for nearly 200 million people to be guided toward a long, healthy life at a leading insurance company—as well as a new sustainability initiative to be integrated in its corporate ambition statement that is expected to drive long-term business growth, customer trust and employee engagement.
Sustainable operations (supply chains): Bain designed and implemented an environmental competitiveness program at a packaging company to address its largest source of waste and carbon emissions, and we integrated environmental considerations as an integral part of the company’s supply chain strategy. As a result, the packaging company gained a competitive advantage by meeting customer demands, consumer preferences and receiving support from stakeholders.
Sustainable operations (resource management): Bain prioritized and developed six energy efficiency solutions to reduce a major oil company’s energy consumption and emissions by nearly 1 million metrics tons of carbon dioxide equivalent.
Sustainable operations (inclusive markets): Bain identified more than $10 million in external investments to allow a consumer products company and its nonprofit partner to enhance the lives of more than 300,000 smallholder farmers. And we established a repeatable model for the company to assess and enhance smallholder farmer ecosystem development.
Sustainability in investing: Bain developed an investment approach and identified the most attractive investment opportunities across the solar photovoltaic value chain for a family office looking to generate above-market returns with renewable energy investments.
Change management and organization in sustainability: Bain redesigned the corporate social sustainability governance structure and operating model, and we created a compelling business case for change to increase sponsorship and support at a leading pharmaceutical company. We expect the initiatives to improve public health alongside environmental and other social benefits, leading to several types of business advantages, including stakeholder support and increased innovation.
