Point B is an employee-owned organization, with a locally-based business model that brings meaningful, triple bottom line value to our customers, communities, and employees every day.
Point B’s Carbon Negative commitment aims to remove all emissions our company has created since our founding in 1995. As part of our commitment, we achieved Climate Neutral Certification in 2022, becoming one of the first large-scale consulting firms to do so while taking another step towards a net-zero future.
Learn more about Point B's Responsible Sourcing initiative, focused on strengthening partnerships with suppliers that share the same deep commitment to sustainability and social responsibility as Point B and our customers.
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.
Point B uses empathy and expertise to solve strategic problems, make transformative change, and cultivate strong, sustainable organizations. Customers also engage us to help achieve their own social and environmental goals, whether it’s through their core business models, philanthropic goals or CSR initiatives. Learn more about how we help our customers Invest in a Sustainable Future.
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.”
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 we provide top-tier consulting services to nonprofits that could not otherwise afford them, with a focus on organizations that advance racial equity.
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.

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. And in 2022, we took a big step forward by obtaining Carbon Neutral Certification and committing to accurate a verifiable accounting of all carbon emissions, high-quality offsets, and setting goals to further reduce emissions based on the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) approach.
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.
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.
