While this report concentrates on our 2019 activities, its release comes at a time of uncertainty and unrest in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial inequalities brought to light by George Floyd’s tragic death. Omnicom’s response will be covered in depth in future reports, but we have summarized some of our efforts in this year’s report as well.

Omnicom is dedicated to advancing our corporate responsibility goals year over year. Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily paused announcing new goals while remaining focused on driving progress against our current commitments.
