Environmental Sustainability


Environmental Management System

We’ve had an environmental management system program for more than a decade. ISO 14001:2015 certified for our global headquarters, it’s how we hold ourselves accountable—a “plan-do-check-act” management construct that allows us to effectively and systematically identify and manage the parts of our operations that have the greatest impact on the environment.

For Booz Allen, that’s our greenhouse gas emissions and an ongoing desire to reduce that impact across our operations. Our focus areas include our facilities’ energy use, commuting, business travel, waste management, IT operations, and purchasing.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Over the past 10 years, we have been calculating our carbon footprint with increasing maturity and granularity, ensuring a full understanding and recognition of our impact. In 2015, we set targets to reduce our scope 2 emissions per square foot and scope 2 emissions per employee by 15% using a 2014 baseline by 2026 and achieved both goals well ahead of schedule. In 2021 we announced our commitment to set firmwide emissions targets in line with climate science that will enable us to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050.

Note that due to rounding, numbers presented in this graphic may not add up precisely to the totals provided. Scope 1 emissions from Fleet Vehicles and Stationary Combustion are negligible and therefore not pictured.


While we do not have a significant impact related to water use, we're conscious of the impact related to our employee water use in facilities and take consistent steps to encourage conservation. Because we don't own our facilities, usage and reduction data is not available to us at this time, but we're committed to taking reasonable steps to minimize our impact in this aspect of environmental sustainability.

Client Solutions

Some of the biggest impacts we have on the world around us are through our client work. Booz Allen has a long history of providing innovative environmental, energy, and sustainability solutions to our clients.  We help with programs related to climate change, natural and cultural resource management, energy efficiency, and more.
