Corporate Responsibility

Our essential intelligence powers inclusive sustainable economies and thriving global communities.

At S&P Global, Corporate Responsibility is more than philanthropy—it’s making a real difference by finding the essential connections between our skills and the needs of society. We develop and deliver essential intelligence. Data and analytics meet strategic insight, in-depth research and trusted benchmarks, so that companies, governments, and individuals can make decisions with conviction. This same drive for relevance shapes our approach to corporate responsibility, and is integral to how we live our values of Integrity, Excellence and Relevance. It’s how we use our skills and capabilities to make meaningful change.

OUR FOCUS

"In everything we do, we aim to contribute to society and our communities."

Helping people develop vital technology skills builds a stronger workforce.

Competition is fierce in today’s job market—but millions of jobs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are going unfilled. This creates global challenges for both the workforce and employers like us. In order to fix the STEM job gap, we need to help people develop essential skills. We’re meeting this challenge head on by investing in STEM programs and inspiring people from diverse backgrounds to become leaders in technology. When we bring underrepresented populations into our sector, the diversity of skill, experience and creative thinking makes the workforce stronger

How we develop essential technology skills:

Our expanding suite of environmental, social & governance (ESG) products and services help people identify how they can invest in ways that support global, long-term change across a wide range of industries and markets.

Empowering women makes economies thrive.

When women are in business, economies grow. At S&P Global, we tackle the challenges women face in launching and developing their businesses—from gender bias to systemic lack of access to capital—with the same skills and insights that make us effective in delivering essential intelligence to our clients.

    We promote the flow of resources and capital to women-owned enterprises in three ways:

  • Leveraging our unique business capabilities—data, technology, and insights.
  • Supporting partners that provide the women-owned small business sector with financial tools that meet women’s distinct needs.
  • Sharing our collective knowledge and experience with women entrepreneurs through employee-led mentorships.

I have learned that you have to be willing to take charge, to be proactive and even a bit fearless.
