An Overview of Our Progress and Achievements in Corporate Social Responsibility

Dentsu Group CSR Promotion System

Dentsu has established three principal committees under its 'Executive Management Committee' and 'Business Supervision Committee', which are responsible for all major management decisions. One of the committees established under the Executive Management Committee is the 'CSR Committee', comprising five Executive Officers and chaired by an Executive Officer. The committee makes decisions on all major CSR-related measures in accordance with the Dentsu Group Code of Conduct, which is the Group's CSR philosophy.

Under the CSR Committee, Dentsu has established subcommittees for human rights education and charitable donations as well as various specialist working groups to deliberate on issues in various fields. We have also designated 'CSR promotion committee members' in all Company departments to promote awareness and disseminate information on specific CSR measures so that CSR efforts can be done on a company-wide basis. On the key theme of the environment, the CSR Committee works closely with the 'Environmental Strategy Council,' Dentsu's in-house body tasked with promoting environment-related programs to promote greater Company-wide awareness concerning the environment.

Each Dentsu Group company in Japan has one board member in charge of CSR. At Group companies outside of Japan, which have increased greatly with the acquisition of Aegis Group plc, we have appointed 'CSR Champions' who promote CSR activities. Through such efforts, we are advancing CSR activities on a Group-wide level.

Dentsu aims to ensure that its CSR measures are consistent across the Group, while at the same time ensuring that all Group companies remain able to fully express its characteristics.
