Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
Living our values
One of BMC’s core values is putting people first. Our CSR strategy is focused on:
- Delivering an inclusive and equitable experience for our employees and customers
- Improving our social impact
We encourage diverse thinking. We produce a recurring diversity speaker series that brings together employees and industry-renowned thought leaders in the collective aim of building empathy and advocating positive change. Additionally, we maintain a constantly growing repository of resources and volunteer opportunities for BMCers and their families including a company-wide inclusivity blog.
- Our commitment to diversity is a business imperative—one that not only applies to our employees, but to those with whom we do business. Our policy is to provide opportunities for small, disadvantaged, and HUBZone (historically under-utilized business zones) businesses, as well as minorities, women, veterans and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses, whether as suppliers or contractors.
- We are committed to having a diverse supplier base to help develop stronger local communities and to help create long-term, sustainable growth for BMC. If you are interested in pursuing opportunities within BMC, please visit our Supplier Diversity page.
Living our values
We regularly survey our employees to understand their experiences at BMC so that we can make improvements at all levels and across all locations. In 2020, 88 percent of our employees completed the BMC Employee Survey. Results showed strong engagement and a sense of belonging across the workforce.
*Employee engagement is calculated as the average score across 20 questions spanning three items in the engagement dimension (i.e., Company Direction & Employee Alignment, Work Environment, Culture & Retention).
Code of Conduct
The BMC Code of Conduct sets a framework to guide employees as they work with colleagues, customers, suppliers, business partners, and other key stakeholders. To ensure consistency in our business dealings, all employees must commit annually to abide by the BMC Code of Conduct. Additionally, we offer online educational content on key legal and regulatory issues or business risks quarterly. These efforts foster a culture of ethics and prioritize employees’ ability to execute business in accordance with applicable policies.

It is BMC’s policy to continually strive to improve our environmental performance by setting annual targets, reviewing our objectives, measuring progress through formal audits, and partnering with organizations committed to combating deforestation such as Reforest’Action, One Tree Planted, Green Thumb, and Vasundhara.
BMC also records data related to our carbon footprint in terms of travel and energy use. To further demonstrate our dedication to environmental citizenship, BMC obtained and maintains the Global Accreditation for ISO 14001:2015.
Pledge to combat climate change
In 2021, BMC joined the global movement of leading companies aligning their business with the most ambitious aims of the Paris Agreement: to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C above preindustrial levels and to reach net-zero by 2050. These actions offer the best chance to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
Through this pledge, BMC commits to establishing science-based emissions reduction targets across the business and setting a long-term target to reach net-zero value chain emissions by no later than 2030. To date, we have already:
- Joined more than 1,000 businesses working with the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to reduce emissions in line with climate science
- Submitted and disclosed our emissions and net-zero carbon goals to CDP, a charity that empowers companies, local regions, and investors to manage their environmental impacts
Transitioning to a net-zero emissions economy requires coordinated action across all sectors of the economy, supported by enabling policy frameworks.
That’s why we’re proudly committing to policy advocacy positions consistent with a 1.5°C future in the countries where we operate and have influence.
BMC is supporting the environment through climate restorative initiatives including our ongoing reforestation partnerships with Reforest’Action and OneTreePlanted. BMC also works with the Ocean Conservancy, TeamSeas, and Seabin Project to remove debris from our shores and waterways.
BMC employees actively engage in the following sustainability best practices. It is our policy to do all that is reasonably practicable to:
- Reduce levels of energy consumption: This includes electricity, gas, and other fossil fuels.
- Reduce use of consumables: We recycle equipment, waste products, and redundant items.
- Use, store, control, and dispose of waste properly: Additionally, we dispose of hazardous materials in line with best environmental practices.
- Purchase items produced from sustainable sources: We are continually seeking to obtain services, equipment, and power from providers that are committed to environmental protection.
- Reduce travel impact: We achieve this by using technology for collaboration and meetings.
- Prevent and reduce pollution: We actively pursue the reduction of our use of substances and processes that adversely affect the environment.
- Record travel carbon emissions: We record and analyze travel data to best manage our carbon footprint.
- Encourage employee participation: We set a standard such that all employees can cooperate in the operation and management of this policy.
