Shared value through social purpose
Society is facing some of its greatest challenges. Climate change, biodiversity loss and extreme inequality are causing exponential disruption. Citizens are demanding change. And businesses are under pressure to respond.
As a global leader in media and digital communications, we understand the power we have to influence how people think, feel and act.
We also recognise the role we play in driving consumption. That's why we're embedding sustainable behaviours and human-centric thinking into our strategy and planning processes – to develop work that is more reflective of the needs of society today.
We have the responsibility, opportunity and privilege to help guide our people, clients and society through this disruption. We will fuse data, technology and creativity in a way that helps create a brighter, more sustainable future for everyone.
For lasting good
Change starts at home
We are committed to three global society programmes
The Code is dentsu’s work-ready programme. It opens the doors of our industry to the next generation of diverse talent, equipping them with the skills to thrive in the digital economy through immersive workshops, competitions, work experience opportunities, apprenticeships and early career opportunities. And, it enable our people to share their insights and expertise with the next generation.
Female Foundry is our business growth programme, designed to give female entrepreneurs access to the tools, training, connections and resources they need to build successful businesses for the digital age. It enables our people to use their skills to mentor and guide participants towards their goals.
We're using the power of media and advertising to help drive delivery of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We are founding members of #BrandsforGood, which aims to make sustainable lifestyles aspirational and rewarding.
