General Standard Disclosures: Stakeholder Engagement

G4-27

Report key topics and concerns that have been raised through stakeholder engagement, and how the organization has responded to those key topics and concerns, including through its reporting. Report the stakeholder groups that raised each of the key topics and concerns.

 At IPG, we define sustainability broadly to include minimizing our environmental footprint, ensuring diversity and inclusion at all of our companies, and assisting communities where our employees live and work. Sustainability is a key priority for IPG as it is for our stakeholders, including employees, clients and shareholders.  We regularly engage with each of these groups on these topics, as we do with all matters of mutual importance. IPG and its agencies work with clients on projects that highlight such matters of importance and many of these engagements are featured on our STRONGER website which is devoted exclusively to the coverage of sustainability.

Recent work in this area has included:

Furthering the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Advancing diversity and inclusion in the workforce

Promoting the use of recyclable packaging
