Interpublic has expanded its reporting boundary each year since 2014.
This year Interpublic continued to expand its calculation of GHG emissions by expanding the boundary to include all offices which are over 50,000 square feet worldwide. Last year, we included all of North America over 50,000 square feet, and select buildings in the UK and France).
The expanded boundary as of the end of 2017 now includes 48% of our worldwide headcount (up from 37%), and 53% of our worldwide square footage (up from 45%).
