Adopted in 2009, our CSR strategy demonstrates Havas’ commitment to operate as a responsible business.
Aligned with our company’s mission, our CSR approach aims to reduce negative social, ethical and environmental impacts associated with our business model and maximise our positive contributions to society.
The Group has established six commitments to progress which guide all aspects of the business regardless of the nature of the work both here in France and worldwide.
We are committed to:
Promoting a harmonious and healthy working environment that supports collaborators’ growth and development
Reinforcing socially responsible procurement policies in our supply chain
Promoting transparency and ethics in our business
Taking the lead in the creation and diffusion of responsible communications throughout our agencies and in collaboration with clients and partners
Reducing the environmental footprint of our operations
Maintaining our commitment to collaborative efforts in reducing climate change
The Group reaffirms its commitment to respect and implement the ten principles of the Global Compact.
Havas is ranked in the Top 9 «Advertising and market research» suppliers by Ecovadis.
During the last edition of Cannes Lions, Havas and the other 5 major communications agencies decided to join forces and launch the Common Ground initiative. The objective of this project is to contribute to the achievement of the 17 sustainable development goals set by the United Nations. The communications industry is considered a pioneer given this type of unique collaborative approach.
Each group is committed to achieving a particular goal: Dentsu –Health, IPG – Access to Drinking Water, Omnicom – Access to Education, Publicis – Food, WPP – Gender Equality, and Havas – Climate Change.
