IPG takes its role as a corporate citizen seriously. We are a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative that encourages companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and to report on the actions the company takes to advance these societal goals. Additionally, we are founding members of, an online platform dedicated to encouraging young people to take action against climate change.

We also aim to strengthen our communities through the work we are doing that helps to protect the long-term health of the environment, as well through the work our agencies are doing in the areas of sustainability, community impact and diversity. Every day, around the world, teams from our agencies are working in their local markets on projects that include showcasing simple and effective ways to save energy, raising awareness about domestic violence and working to eradicate polio around the world
