Act With Certainty:
Edelman’s Citizenship Journey

Citizenship is Edelman’s corporate social responsibility mandate. Giving back to the community has been embedded in Edelman’s culture since Dan Edelman opened the firm in 1952.

Through our Citizenship function, we’ve operationalized and scaled our impact globally. From volunteerism and pro bono work to greener offices and responsible procurement, Citizenship continues to activate a collective force for good. We aim to align all of our policies, programs and operations to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to ensure we’re holding ourselves accountable for action every step of the way.

Our journey since our inception in 2010 has been evolutionary, and we measure our progress in milestones.



Our Citizenship report provides an annual overview of how we are living up to our third core value: the courage to do the right thing. Our FY 2018 report shows our commitment to our people, our clients, our communities and our world with measurable goals and achievements.
