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.

Equip the global workforce with essential STEM and digital skills.
Competition is fierce in today’s job market—but millions of jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are going unfilled. To help close the STEM job gap, we assist underserved people, including women, minorities, immigrants and low-income youth, to gain the essential skills today’s economy demands. In addition, S&P Global employees continue to share their skills with the next generation by mentoring U.S. high school students from diverse backgrounds.

Expand economic opportunities for the underserved and support advancement for women.
A thriving economy -- growing, sustainable and stable -- must also be an inclusive economy. Economies should function for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or gender. At S&P Global, we believe an investment in women is an investment in us all.
I have learned that you have to be willing to take charge, to be proactive and even a bit fearless.
