Introduction

Welcome to our seventh Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report.

Here we summarise our progress during 2008 and the first quarter of 2009.

We explain our approach to the key social and environmental issues for our business and give in-practice examples from many WPP companies.

Our people play an essential role in all our CR initiatives. From reducing our office energy use and implementing high marketing standards, to helping clients communicate with consumers on social and environmental issues – they make it happen. To illustrate this, we’ve included views and insights on CR at WPP from people across the Group.

We don’t think reporting should be a one-sided conversation. We welcome your feedback – whether positive or negative. You can contact us at: cr@wpp.com.
