Social Value Statement

AGC considers social value in all our business decisions, including:

  • how we employ staff and pay and reward their work;

  • how we engage with and support our communities;

  • how we buy products and services; 

  • how we conduct our business practices; and

  • how we engage with our clients.


AGC acknowledges that the work we do has immense power and reach.

We are committed to working with clients who share our social values, and promoting their work and services beyond media and marketing activity.

AGC is also committed to ensuring that our work endeavours to include messaging and stories that enhance social value.

All of the above activity enables us to do our bit to cultivate a more sustainable and inclusive society, and demonstrate that business done well can be a force for good.

Real Living Wage Statement

AGC is committed to ensure our staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum.

The Real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate based on living costs. It is voluntarily paid by over 14,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs like the weekly shop, or a surprise trip to the dentist.

AGC also commits to implement new minimum rates when they change.

This commitment to a minimum level of pay also extends to third-party contractors and suppliers.
