Our strategy and technology consultants have empowered our international clients with the knowledge and experience they need to build their own local resources and capabilities.
In facing challenges of modernization, our Middle East and North Africa clients have complex requirements that benefit from our proven experience in guiding major programs and projects for governments and private-sector organizations. The services we offer in UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, Kuwait, Morocco, Jordan, and other regional countries build on our consulting legacy.
Our clients call upon us to work on their hardest problems—delivering effective health care, protecting warfighters and their families, keeping our national infrastructure secure, bringing into focus the traditional boundaries between consumer products and manufacturing as those boundaries blur.
Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.

At least once a day, Technologist Sydney Aiken stops by the “turtle ring station” at Booz Allen’s Digital Hub in Charleston, South Carolina. Scissors in hand, she cuts up plastic drink rings accumulated at the office before they’re recycled. That way, they won’t harm sea turtles and other wildlife if they make their way into the ecosystem. “We really live our values here,” says Sydney. “Passionate service includes taking care of ourselves, our clients—and our earth.”
Helping sea turtles is just one small part of the hub’s efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Coworkers bring in used furniture and game systems from home instead of buying new. They recycle toys as part of a firmwide effort with Second Chance Toys. And they avidly participate in beach cleanups together. All these activities show how we’re putting into action green practices that support the firm’s commitment to sustainable growth.
“We really live our values here at Booz Allen. Passionate service includes taking care of ourselves, our clients—and our earth.”

The facility where the Charleston teams work is also a showcase for sustainability. Opened in May 2017, the 75,000 square-foot building has innovatively integrated LEED guidelines, green building materials, and high-efficiency systems to ensure minimal environmental impact throughout the construction process and the life of the building. A tech-forward open floorplan, and multipurpose design, maximizes efficiency and encourages collective creativity and innovation for the firm’s Digital Solutions teams.
The facility’s green construction significantly lowers HVAC use and utility costs with a building envelope that combines reflective roofing materials, glazed glass windows, and concrete tilt-wall panels to keep rooms cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Its flooring and walls are made of high-recycled content, and the interior features high-efficiency lighting and heating, LEED-standard plumbing fixtures, low-toxicity materials, and an atrium that lets in natural daylight.
“Even at lunchtime, we’re thinking about the environment,” says Sydney. “Most of us bring our own lunch in reusable packages rather than little plastic baggies. We sit and eat together in the main room. Being there for each other, and being green, are integral to the hub’s culture.”
As with the interior, the facility’s exterior melds industry innovation with responsible choices. Outside, open spaces include 191 trees and five grand trees that were preserved during the land clearing process. There’s also a retention pond with fountains that promote the pond’s health and biodiversity. And a bike rack means employees can bike to work or simply go on a ride during their lunch break—promoting the wellness of our people as well as the environment.
In 2010, the firm made a public committment to creating significant and lasting improvements to the sustainability of our world, not just through the work we do for our clients but also in the way we work. Green building practices, like those employed in Charleston, help the firm make good on its commitment by ensuring minimal environmental impact while we grow and expand our business.
“I really appreciate how Booz Allen encourages people to grow in their roles, empowering them to change the world,” says Sydney. “For me, part of that means being more sustainable. I see opportunities where we could improve all the time.”
With a process in place for the plastic drink rings, Sydney is now focusing on another life-threatening hazard to marine life: Plastic straws. Turtles can get them lodged in their nostrils, preventing them from breathing. Sydney is devising a plan to eliminate plastic straws from her Charleston workplace, too.
