Among the highlights in this year’s ESG Report, IPG notes achievement of its near-term science-based target to reduce Scopes 1 and 2 emissions by 50%, ahead of the company’s 2030 goal, and significant progress toward its goal to reduce Scope 3 emissions by 30%. The report also covers the company’s Responsible Media & Content Principles, which outline expectations to deliver socially and environmentally responsible, non-stereotyped and accessible content for all marketers. New partnerships are also highlighted throughout the report, like the Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society (PAI), a not-for-profit working to ensure that AI equitably enhances quality of life.

“We continue to focus on integrating our ESG priorities and practices into the ways we operate, how we partner with our clients and how we foster a sense of fairness and belonging across our company,” said Philippe Krakowsky, IPG’s Chief Executive Officer. “Partnering with clients on solutions that further their businesses and align with our mutual values is core to our strategy for future success,” he continued.

“We are proud of our progress toward delivering on our long-term net-zero goal, which we aim to reach across our operations by 2040,” said Jemma Gould, IPG’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “We are equally as motivated by the work we have left to do as we continue to evolve our ESG program and deliver the best work for our clients and partners, with sustainability and equity always top-of-mind,” she continued.
