Arthur Sadoun

Chairman & CEO Publicis Groupe

Our clients are today facing an obligation to transform their businesses radically. For Publicis Groupe, this is an opportunity to reach our goal of being the preferred partner in their transformation journey. To do so, we maintain constant dialogue with our key stakeholders around our social, societal, ethical and environmental challenges. Our goal is to provide brilliant solutions that represent our strong values and that have a positive social impact. We aim to promote the standards for responsible marketing, evermore demanding, in terms of diversity, transparency, and data protection. For this, we rely above all on our most precious assets: our talents in creative, media, and technology.

Sustainable consumption has now been widely acclaimed. This deep-rooted trend is great news in that it signals a positive shift in citizens / consumer behavior, a shift brought about by innovation and a deeply changed offering of products and services. Responsible communication now enhances the appeal and distribution of new products and services that are increasingly geared to compliance with social, society and environmental dimensions.

In the on-going digital revolution, the relationship between our clients’ brands and end consumers has never been as direct, as simple and as instantaneous as it is now. The powerful alchemy of creativity and technology that we propose via our Solutions Hubs must also include standards of responsible marketing that are more stringent concerning content, but also standards of transparency as regards practices and protection of personal data in particular.

Our Groupe is facing the same challenges as our clients, but with our more integrated structure - “The Power of One” - we want to go a step further. The challenge for us is to identify each and every component of what we contribute to the economy, to social issues, to society and the environment. Communications are ephemerous by essence, despite the fact that they build up brands for the long term. Integrated reporting will be an opportunity to demonstrate how our businesses are evolving over time and in terms of sustainable development.

Creation of sustainable value

Throughout its history, Publicis Groupe has focused its efforts on anticipating and building the future to ensure the creation of sustainable value in an ever-changing world. The recent transformation of the Groupe through “The Power of One” has orchestrated the most highly-integrated organisation in the industry. This has facilitated the integration of key CSR challenges within the day-to-day operations of Publicis Solutions Hubs.

CSR is a driver of innovation that paves the way for new models of cooperation and partnerships to accompany the development of our clients, our talents and the communities around us.
