n our Corporate Responsibility Policy we commit to minimising our impact on the environment. Climate change is our most significant environmental issue and we have set targets to reduce our CO2 emissions by 20% by 2010 (using 2006 as a baseline). In 2007 WPP became carbon neutral.
Climate change is also important to our key stakeholders including investors who are asking us to disclose our carbon footprint. Many of the companies we work for are taking action on climate change and increasingly request information on our environmental credentials during pitches. Having a clear climate strategy provides an additional credential for our businesses advising clients on their response to climate change.
Taking a leadership approach to climate change also helps us to recruit and retain environmentally aware graduate talent.
