On behalf of everyone at mci group, I welcome you to our 2022 sustainability report.

This year, we are proud to celebrate 15 years as signatories of the UN’s Global Compact agreement. As a collective of agencies specialising in strategic communication and engagement, we understand the significance of operating sustainably and achieving carbon neutrality to bring together diverse audiences from around the world.

That bridge must be built with conscience, care, transparency, and respect. Being genuinely sustainable isn’t just about making the best possible choices while working with our clients. It’s about ensuring every action we take betters us as a group and enables others to have better opportunities for themselves. It means taking on new talents and investing the time in training existing ones. It means championing diversity from the ground up to create equal opportunity and give vital voices a chance to be heard.

In 2022, across our operations in 30+ countries, we have taken on 116 mentees, delivered 3696 hours of training and 1909 hours of volunteering, and raised nearly €3.5m for charity. We achieved ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 certifications, meeting international standards for Information Security and Data Privacy, and one more office has been certified ISO 20121 for sustainable events management.

We’re proud of those achievements, and there are many more in this report we’re excited to share. We are also excited to share the ways in which our nine priorities aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and our board role on the Net Zero Events Initiative strive to make every single mci group action a step towards change.

Our Commitments

In 2022, we celebrated 15 years as a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact Agreement, a strategic policy initiative for businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
We are firmly committed to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and are proud to be part of the cohort of environmentally and socially aware businesses that are aligned with them.

Our Mission

Our mission as a group is to be a catalyst for change, to use our skills, voice, and relationships to make a positive impact on both our clients and the wider world.

Since 2006, when we began our sustainability journey, our dedicated sustainability arm has had a far-reaching impact both within and outside mci group, transforming the way our company operates whilst building a better tomorrow for our planet and its people.
