Point B's Social Responsibility Framework

Our Impact Framework uses our four core value propositions as a lens to advance our investments in people, planet and profit. It also serves as a baseline to measure our company’s performance, mitigate risk, and adapt to change as people, technology and markets evolve.

Customers

Point B helps a remarkable group of customers to form, execute, and thrive.

People

Point B was founded for our people. Our founders were inspired by the idea that it’s possible to have an exciting career in consulting and enjoy the right work/life balance, too. It informs our local model of doing business and has helped us create a culture that’s come to be known as our “secret sauce.” It has inspired us to take some bold steps for our people, including our move to becoming 100% employee-owned in 2014. When our people can deliver exciting work and still stay engaged in their communities, everyone wins.

Community

Service is a core Point B value and we are committed to accelerating positive social change in a big way. Point B supports community actions through corporate giving, pro-bono consulting hours, and paid time off for people to volunteer in their communities. We encourage joining nonprofit boards by offering training for new board members and making Point  B conference rooms available for board meetings and related activities. Through our Lift Program, we provide top-tier consulting services to nonprofits that could not otherwise afford them, with a focus on organizations that advance racial equity.

Company

At Point B, social responsibility and sustainability live deep in our business model. By considering the financial, social, and environmental impacts of a business decision, sustainability and social responsibility shape the way we work. These CSR principles inspire us make decisions we can be proud of, knowing we’re doing the right thing to benefit our customers, our communities, and our company.

Our employee-owned firm is rooted in a set of strong core values and uncompromising ethics. Our 2020 Vision is guided by the belief that our people should have one W2 and multiple careers. We can achieve this vision by continuing to diversify and expand our business while keeping a keen commitment to our people, our customers and the communities in which we live and work. It’s just good business—and it’s the right thing to do. It’s social responsibility at Point B.

Key Initiatives

Carbon Negative by 2030

As a company, we’ve decided to take immediate and radical action, embarking on an ambitious commitment to become carbon negative by 2030. We believe we can play an essential role in helping humanity solve for the greatest existential crisis ever faced, protecting future generations’ right to a healthy and habitable planet.  Our commitment establishes targets to significantly reduce emissions and remove and offset more carbon than we emit. We’re also determining how we will extend this commitment to remove historical indirect emissions from our supply chain.

As part of our pledge, we’re taking a close look at every area of our business, and what impact each has on our Carbon Negative goals. We’re looking at how we can reshape air travel and employee commuting. We’re evaluating our supplier relationships, internal operations and associate engagement.

As ambitious as our commitment is, we’re taking it a step further as we aim to remove all emissions our company has created since our founding in 1995.

Responsible Sourcing

In 2019, Point B launched our Responsible Sourcing initiative to strengthen partnerships with suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. We foster long-term business relationships that encourage sustainable, inclusive and responsible business conduct in our commitment to drive greater value for our customers, communities, partners and company.
