Every business has an impact on society and the way that people live their lives, from the products and services they deliver—whether food, mobile communications, banking services, or utilities—to the way they operate—including employment practices and supply-chain decisions. As advisors to the world’s leading businesses, governments and nonprofits, our principal contribution to society is through our work with them.
We are also committed to social impact through the way we run our firm. It is in our DNA. As long ago as 1954, at a time when McKinsey had fewer than 100 consultants, we undertook our first pro bono work for the Red Cross. Sixty years on, we address societal issues in a range of ways, including through client work and pro bono projects, by developing and sharing knowledge and through efforts that our people lead. Our firm’s social impact matters to us. We think about it in the following six ways.
