IPG is committed to good corporate citizenship.
IPG is committed to operating as sustainably as possible. And we define sustainability broadly to include diversity and inclusion, the betterment of our communities and conducting our business in a way that is in sync with the long-term health of our planet.
IPG is a participant in 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 part of Common Ground, an initiative that brings together the companies in our sector in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. IPG has adopted Goal #6, access to water and sanitation, and is working on a number of initiatives in support of this goal including a partnership with charity: water that funded a rehabilitated hand pump for a well in Ethiopia, a community where about 70% of the population previously lacked access to clean water.
We also aim to strengthen the communities where our employees live and work. Every day, around the world, teams from our agencies are working in their local markets on projects that include raising awareness of mental health, domestic violence and women’s empowerment in its offices and celebrating diversity and equal rights around the world.
Each year, IPG contributes financially as well as through in-kind donations to many organizations focused on economic justice, environmental, health and social impact, that have a positive effect on the communities where our employees live and work. Below is a list of some of the organizations to which IPG has contributed during the past year.
