What is Social Impact?
Society is facing some of its greatest challenges. Climate change, biodiversity and inequality are causing widespread disruption. Business and brands are under pressure to respond and citizens are calling for change. As a global leader in media and digital communications, we understand the power we have to influence the way that people think, feel and act. We are not simply spectators.
We have an opportunity, a responsibility and the privilege, to guide our people, clients and society through this disruption. We can fuse data, technology and creativity in a way that helps create lasting good and a brighter, more sustainable future for everyone.
This purpose sits at the heart of our business strategy and culture. And as a global organisation of 46,000 passionate people, we have the creativity, skills and potential to make this happen. It starts with insight and ideas, and a vision of a better future. Together we can inspire people everywhere towards a new way of living. Our Social Impact strategy sets out the areas in which we can make the biggest difference.
