Omnicom Group Inc. on Thursday named Karen van Bergen as chief environmental sustainability officer, responsible for overseeing the Marketing and corporate communications company’s climate change initiatives and processes.
The new role will add to her current position as executive vice president and dean of Omnicom University.
The company said the appointment underpins an on-going effort to reduce the environmental impact of its operations across its global networks and agencies.
“Nearly five years ago, the company established sustainability goals aimed at reducing its energy use while increasing use of renewable resources. With these goals targeted for completion by 2023, van Bergen will work with executive leadership on developing a climate action plan with the goal of further reducing Omnicom’s carbon footprint,” it said.
