Driven by sustainable development
Involved in projects in many different countries, with subsidiaries in Switzerland, France, Italy, Portugal and Algeria, the BG group, founded in Switzerland in 1954, is a firm of consulting engineers engaged in the fields of infrastructure, environment, building and energy.
Financial and intellectual independence
Owned by its employees, BG has a large financial autonomy. The Group is headquartered in Lausanne (Switzerland) and employs approximately 650 employees in 21 offices. In 2018 BG generated a turnover of CHF 96.9 million.
BG serves both public and private clients
Their services are appreciated by a wide client base, 60% of which is from the public sector and 40% from the private and semi-public sector.
Among BG’s clients are local, regional or national administrations and departments, large associations and public companies, associations of communes and areas, major industries, manufacturers and distributors, semi-public companies, public works companies and private developers.
Their business relations are highly personalised to build a close link between the client and the Project Leader, thereby they are ensuring optimum management at all stages of the project.
Their website www.bg-21.com
and their e-mail addresses contain a "bg-21". Why? For a practical and a philosophical reason. When BG launched its website, the domain name bg.com was already occupied. Therefore another name had to be found. They then decided to add the number 21. This is a reference to Agenda 21 - the ambitious action plan for the 21st century - adopted at the 1992 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio. The 21 is thus at the heart of their e-mail addresses, just as sustainable development is at the heart of BG's activities.
We base their organisation on eight core values that guide all their actions.
BG attaches particular importance to the social responsibility of the company. Environmental awareness, business ethics, respectful treatment of employees and responsible purchasing are among the criteria that determine the Group's activities.
By adhering to the highest ethical standards, BG gives serious consideration to the consequences of its actions on the well-being of their planet’s inhabitants and contributes to building a sustainable living environment.
BG works closely with its clients throughout the entire project duration, providing attentive service and personalised advice, while demonstrating resourcefulness and transparency.

Given its size and multidisciplinary nature, BG is able to build teams tailored to each project. Through the added value it provides, BG is widely recognised as an ambassador of «Swiss engineering».
BG encourages creativity, teamwork and networking among its employees, while at the same time placing a strong emphasis on vocational training.
