With an audience of more than 850 million people every day worldwide, we believe outdoor advertising can be a force for good and we work to amplify responsible advertising.

Responsible campaigns at JCDecaux

In 2022, we implemented our Code of Conduct for Out-of-Home Display. This Code demonstrates our commitment to respectful and responsible communication and has been rolled out to all Group countries to ensure compliance with ethical rules wherever we operate.

Our strategy in action

In order to raise customer awareness of the impact of advertising campaigns, in 2022 we developed: Footprint 360. In this pilot project in France, the calculator takes into account the economic, social and environmental footprint and offers customers a holistic view of the challenges associated with their advertising campaigns. This multidimensional footprint calculator is based on four indicators: CO2 emissions, water consumption, Full-Time Equivalents (FTE) supported and the value in euros generated in the French economy. The overall methodology has been certified by an Independent Third Party (EY).

Safeguard our digital activities to the highest possible degree

We run digital Out-of-Home campaigns in 63 countries across 30,000 advertising panels. Any external or internal attempt to access digital screens on the Group’s street furniture to show unauthorised messages would represent a major risk.

Our objective

Zero security incidentthat disrupt our service or result in the undetected broadcast of unauthorised content on digital screens where this broadcast is controlled by and under the responsibility of JCDecaux

Protect our digital activities

In order to address the risks of cyber-attacks, we have formalised a poilicy structured around three pillars:

           Secure our data and IT applications

Mobilise and train our teams

Monitor and detect unusual situations

  1. State-of-the-art technologies
  2. Consideration of security requirements from the design phase of software platforms (Security by Design) 


  1. Centralised governance within all Group countries
  2. IT security policies updated annually
  3. Frequent training and awareness-raising for all employees (via the Group's e-learning platform)


  1. 24/7 supervision of operations
  2. Regular penetration tests
  3. Regular checks carried out by our internal audit team

Advocate for public interest communication that serves the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda

In September 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Programme for Sustainable Development, called Agenda 2030. With its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets, it sets a roadmap for all countries and calls for the mobilisation of all stakeholders, including companies.

With a global audience of more than 850 million people worldwide, we believe  that Out-of-Home advertising and JCDecaux can be catalyst for raising awareness of this global approach, promoting their key messages wherever we operate.

In 2023, we were proud to become an official partner of the “United Nations Joint SDG Fund” (Sustainable Development Goals). This global strategic partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) aims to support the “United Nations Joint SDG Fund”, a fund designed to accelerate the development of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) worldwide.

Our strategy in action

Since 2014, we have enabled Justdiggit to communicate widely about its activities by providing free advertising space on our digital furniture.

In Europe, Justdiggit campaigns aim to raise awareness among millions of people, and in Africa, they aim to encourage small-scale farmers and urban communities to protect and restore ecosystems. To do this, they promote low-cost, scalable techniques that benefit farmers economically by improving crop yields.
