Icon Creations' Commitment to Sustainability

At Icon Creations, we use the collective power of creativity and innovation to ensure success and growth for our people, clients, communities and planet. We always strive to advise our clients on sustainability issues across all industries, and we apply the same principles internally to improve our own performance in terms of sustainable work.

Icon Creations has delivered a wide variety of digital campaigns and executions to support our clients on their sustainability journeys, all while playing our part in progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals through different initiatives, such as pro bono work.

Since our mantra is “we are about people, relationships and the convergence of vision, focus and teamwork”, we know that our people are our company. As we aim to constantly improve our practice in terms of sustainability, and help our clients to do the same, we focus on three key attributes: a clear direction; a guiding set of values; and a robust strategy for growth. All three come together in our people at Icon Creations.

But it’s not just about people; it’s about the differences and diversity between them that bring us together to form that wholesome team spirit – from gender, race and ethnicity, age, religion, disability, and much more.

Icon Creations fosters an inclusive culture that is equitable and respectful of diverse thoughts and individual expression. Our commitment to act ethically in all parts of our business acts as a cornerstone for upholding the highest levels of honesty and integrity in areas like ethics, human rights, privacy, and security. Since 2003, we have always sought to attract, retain and grow the most talented, creative and inspired people in Egypt. Today, exceptional talent is the life force of Icon Creations.

This is also a result of asking our people what they want in their roles at the agency, and more often than not the answer is opportunities to grow and learn, and that is exactly why we constantly invest in training and skills development with online courses and team building efforts. This in turn nurtures a culture of professional intimacy and a unique drive to always achieve more, helping us grow our people and business along the journey.

In efforts to raise awareness by the National Council for Women in partnership with the Ministry of Manpower, the Federation of Egyptian Industries, UN Women Egypt, and the International Labor Organization ILO Cairo, we were glad to produce a video that sheds light on women’s safety in the workplace by condemning the harassment culture at workplaces in Egypt, emphasizing the importance of women as an effective element of the workplace and their safety at work that must be ensured as a fundamental right by business owners and companies.
