Social Impact

Weber Shandwick’s award-winning Social Impact team shapes engagement strategies for purpose-driven organisations, companies and brands committed to achieving a healthier, more equal and sustainable planet.

Now, more than ever, we need innovative and creative solutions to societal challenges. Geopolitical uncertainty, the impacts of climate change and other global trends are undermining recent progress. Tackling inequalities and achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 will require unprecedented levels of cooperation across public, private and social spheres.

We work with the change-agents in the vanguard of these new collaborations – the companies, foundations, non-profits, governments and individuals taking on the greatest threats to people, planet and prosperity.
