WE is committed to using our gift of communications to move people to positive action in the world. Corporate citizenship is our quest to live our purpose in a sustainable and responsible way, making a positive social, environmental and economic impact through our services, employees, management of operations and contributions to our industry.

People are at the heart of WE’s business and corporate citizenship strategy. To WE, corporate citizenship means improving the quality of life for our employees and for the communities in which we work and live. Our global reach and mindset ensure that we apply the right people and best resources to address the needs of our clients and communities.

UN Global Compact Communication on Progress

The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) calls companies to align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. WE’s core values — integrity, humanity, excellence, imagination, collaboration — are woven into the fabric of our company, and align with the UNGC principles.

Every year, WE issues a Communications on Progress, outlining steps taken to integrate the UNGC’s 10 principles.

You know the concern: We must all act now to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change around the globe. As a purpose-driven agency, we are defining our path for a sustainable future by making important changes that reduce our environmental impact. 

To start, in 2022 we adopted these carbon reduction goals:  

  1. Net-zero operations by 2030
  2. 100% renewable energy procurement by 2030
  3. 40% reduction in Scope 3 emissions by 2030
  4. Launch a supplier sustainability program by 2025

WE will evaluate and report out on our progress towards these goals annually and commits to continuous improvement in our practices around sustainability.
