Sustainable Development and Environmental Protection
The JCDecaux group is committed to sustainable development and has demonstrated this through proactive quality policies and a comprehensive approach to corporate social responsibility. Our challenge in the face of rapidly expanding urban spaces is to support cities in their development through innovative solutions which integrate sustainable development.

JCDecaux was also an official partner of COP21, the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, which was held in Paris on 30th Nov – 11th Dec 2015 and brought together 20,000 delegates from 196 countries to negotiate a new binding international agreement to keep global warming below 2°C and with two main components:
– Commitment of Member States to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to keep global warming below 2°C by 2100
– Find funding to enable developing countries to combat climate change and adapt to its consequences, promoting a fair and sustainable development.
JCDecaux wanted to be a partner of the COP21 to reaffirm to our employees, partners, customers and suppliers our commitment towards sustainable development. By providing innovative solutions to the challenges of the 21st century, JCDecaux can put its expertise and its teams’ collective intelligence to work for long-term growth.
In Ireland, JCDecaux is committed to being a truly sustainable business, to acting ethically and responsibly, protecting the environment and the health and safety of employees, contractors, visitors and others affected by our operations. We are very aware of the impact all businesses have on the environment and wherever and whenever possible we are committed to minimising any potentially harmful effects which may occur during the running of our day-to-day business. In order to reduce our overall impact, and maximise our contribution to sustainable development, JCDecaux Ireland developed an environmental management system to the international environmental standard ISO: 14001, and has been accredited after a series of certification audits. On a daily basis the three main areas which we look at to help minimise our environmental footprint are to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. This is a principle which is followed through all aspects of our business.
JCDecaux Ireland’s nominated charities for 2018-2019 are Barnardos, Fighting Blindness and the Irish Cancer Society. Our nominated charities in Northern Ireland are Concern Worldwide, Inspire and Simon Community. JCDecaux will be donating €2 million worth of outdoor media space over a 2 year period to support each charity in their efforts to raise awareness and drive fundraising.
We are very pleased to be in a position to partner with these exceptionally worthy charities in 2018/2019. We are looking forward to using our formats to increase awareness on a national basis of the key issues facing each charityTony O'FlanaganMarketing Director, JCDecaux Ireland
