  1. Report significant changes from previous reporting periods in the Scope and Aspect Boundaries

Interpublic has expanded its reporting boundary each year since 2014.

In this year’s report, IPG expanded our disclosure and reporting practices around material issues, as well as new indicators and reporting frameworks. This year’s sustainability report has been published utilizing the GRI Standards disclosures. This year’s report also enhances disclosures around human capital topics such as parental leave, gender pay gap, workforce diversity, employee health, training and development, grievance mechanisms, human rights, supplier diversity, responsible marketing, and other ESG-related topics.

In 2020, building upon IPG’s annual energy and emission boundary expansion, we officially reached 100% boundary coverage of all IPG and agency locations and offices around the world, representing over 350 facilities worldwide. This boundary was expanded from last year where we had included global offices over 50,000 square feet and all offices of every size in North America and the UK representing 65% of our worldwide square footage. This year IPG has now reached 100% of worldwide square footage for the first time and we have calculated both 2019 and 2018 energy and emissions data to provide year over year comparison of our full global emissions boundary.

We welcome your review and engagement on IPG’s improved ESG reporting practices, and will continue to enhance our work in this area in the years to come.
