Board of Directors Letter
On behalf of Booz Allen Hamilton's Board of Directors, I am thrilled to present our dynamic vision for a human-centric, mission-focused, technology-powered future. Please join us as we review our efforts over this past fiscal year to bring that vision to life.
Responsible governance is the cornerstone of everything we do at Booz Allen. As one of the first organizations in the United States to adopt a formal code of business ethics, we strive to exemplify and redefine the standard of best practices for ethics and compliance and to integrate environmental, social, and governance risk management into all levels of business strategy and execution. We continue to lead with our mission to act with purpose and live by our values.
At Booz Allen, we know strong teams are diverse teams, and we harness the power of diversity throughout our people, leadership, and governing bodies. We hold ourselves accountable by aligning our vision with tangible business commitments, such as tying executive compensation to progress on the firm's diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. We also know that our greatest strength is our people. Our integrated well-being strategy, which supports all aspects of our people's lives, was critical to our success during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to evolve as we emerge and adjust to a new way of working and living.
We are committed to a resilient and sustainable future. We continue to make progress on our commitment to set firmwide emissions targets in line with climate science that will enable us to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. As we work to integrate climate risks across our organizational strategy and risk management processes, we are committed to developing a climate action plan and we plan to share more with you in the coming year.
We are driven by continuous improvement on all fronts, transforming ourselves to transform our clients. We know there is more work to be done to positively impact the world, and we look forward to communicating further developments and progress against our goal to empower people to change the world.
Throughout this report, you will see the many ways we are integrating environmental, social, and governance practices throughout our business and into our future. Thank you for your partnership as we move forward together to create a more secure, connected, equitable future for all.
