For us, sustainability isn’t about checking boxes. It’s about taking steps to continuously evolve our business to be more responsible and more resilient. It’s about doing our part to make a positive impact and be a force for change, leading with purpose, holding ourselves accountable and prioritizing long-term stability over short-term financial rewards.
Investing in sustainable initiatives isn’t just about BDO’s future. It’s about the future of all our stakeholders. That’s why we’re continuing to integrate sustainable practices into our operations and have made commitments that will help us ensure that our planet and its people thrive.
We are a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact and commit to conducting our business in alignment with its Ten Principles and to prioritize the advancement and achievement of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.
BDO’s purpose – helping people thrive, every day – is a broad mandate to serve our people, our clients and our communities. To fulfill our purpose, we are working to integrate sustainable business practices into everything we do. We believe in doing so we will make BDO a more resilient organization, drive growth, foster innovation, and ultimately deliver stronger long-term financial performance. Moreover, it’s the right thing to do for our stakeholders, society and the planet.

While we recognize that there’s a lot more work to do, there’s a lot we’re already doing — and have been doing for many years — as part of our commitment to helping people thrive every day.
Like many companies, BDO is on a journey to become a more sustainable organization. We’ve made great progress, with enthusiastic support from our leaders and our people. Yet there is more to do to ensure a thriving company and a thriving planet, today and for future generations.
As we prioritize sustainability within our own organization, we believe we have an opportunity – a responsibility – to help our clients do the same. Our team of dedicated professionals bring deep Sustainability and ESG experience, meeting clients wherever they are in their own journeys.
Advancing Stakeholder Capitalism Through Conscious Leadership
To help inspire and elevate leaders, transform organizations and better society, BDO has joined with Raj Sisodia, co-founder and co-chairman of Conscious Capitalism, Inc., and Neha Sangwan, MD, to offer The Conscious Business Leadership Academy.
An executive education program, the Academy provides an opportunity for CEOs and other C-suite executives to reflect on their leadership teams, corporate cultures and business practices and align the purpose and profitability of their businesses with a deep commitment to building a sustainable and brighter future for their stakeholders.
