Taking responsibility

The Ipsos approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has always incorporated three critical elements – Social, Societal and Environmental. This information not only gives us insight into benchmarking our performance, around the world, but also provides a basis for our improvement.

A CSR commitment wherever Ipsos operates

Ipsos_logo-united-nations-global-compactIn 2008, Ipsos was the first research company in the world to subscribe to the UN Global Compact, which promotes ten universal principles concerning human rights, labor, the environment and combating corruption.

 

Ipsos' CSR program was created in 2008 with 3 main principles:

 

  • Adhering to the 10 Principles of the United Nations Global Compact;
  • Reducing our environmental footprint;
  • Increasing our social impact with the creation of the Ipsos Foundation to educate disadvantaged children and youth worldwide.

Ipsos CSR policy management tools include “The Green Book”, the Ipsos Professional Code of Conduct, and the “Book of Policies and Procedures”, supplemented by a whistle-blowing procedure.
