Careers in McKinsey Sustainability

Helping accelerate a sustainable future
By leveraging our thought leadership, innovative tools, and solutions, we help clients accelerate the transition to a net-zero economy. When you join McKinsey Sustainability, you join over 1,000 colleagues who leverage thought leadership, innovative tools and solutions, and a vibrant ecosystem of industry associations and knowledge platforms focused on innovating to net-zero emissions.

Leading by example

We recognize our responsibility to help protect the planet and are committed to minimizing the impact our firm has on the environment. We are also committed to supporting businesses and organizations that are working to improve global environmental sustainability.

We will reach net-zero climate impact by 2030 through three key areas:

Decarbonizing our operations

We are committed to achieving net-zero climate impact by 2030. As a critical milestone on that journey, we have set science-based targets that have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative in line with a 1.5-degree pathway. Achieving these commitments and lowering our firm's carbon footprint requires a multi-pronged approach across all scopes.

Investing in natural climate solutions

The world faces converging environmental crises that are inextricably linked and compounding—climate change and the accelerating destruction of our natural ecosystems. To address these dual crises, we invest in natural climate solutions (NCS). We focus on NCS—in particular, forest protection and reforestation—both to compensate for our remaining emissions and to help remove carbon from the atmosphere.

Accelerating progress through partnerships

Partnering with others is key to scaling the solutions we collectively need. We work with our clients, peer organizations, nonprofits, and other partners to support a transition to net-zero emissions, help scale high-impact environmental efforts with nonprofits through pro bono support, as well as embedding sustainability into our processes, and encouraging our key suppliers to create more sustainable operations.
