Porter Novelli’s dedication to transforming attitudes, beliefs and behaviors is not limited to the work we do for our clients; it extends to the communities in which we do business.
International Youth Foundation
We are deeply committed to providing opportunities for youth. We serve as the pro bono agency for the International Youth Foundation (IYF), which invests in the extraordinary potential of young people. IYF builds and maintains a worldwide community of business, government and civil society organizations committed to empowering youth to be healthy, productive and engaged citizens. Through this relationship we also work with YouthActionNet®, launched by IYF, which invests in the power and promise of young social entrepreneurs around the globe.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Porter Novelli’s dedication to transforming attitudes and behaviors is not limited to the work we do for our clients; it extends to the communities in which we do business.
In addition, we know that our world’s resources are not infinite. As a responsible corporate citizen, we implemented a comprehensive program to reduce the agency’s carbon footprint in our offices and in the communities around the world in which we do business, including:
10 percent reduction in carbon emissions from building energy use
Deployment of videoconferencing infrastructure
Company-wide policy for fuel-efficient rental vehicle selection
Policy of purchasing “low-carbon” and environmentally preferable high-volume items like office supplies

Maintaining high standards in business ethics and behavior is not optional at Porter Novelli; it’s mandatory. We abide by the Council of Public Relations Firms’ statement of principle and instituted our own corporate policy to govern business and personal behavior on the Internet. Every employee must meet the standards set in our Porter Novelli statement of ethics.
