Message from Douglas Peterson, President & CEO of S&P Global

Dear Stakeholder,

Welcome to the 2024 edition of S&P Global’s Sustainability Yearbook. This year we celebrate its 20th anniversary, a wonderful milestone. I thank everyone involved in producing the Yearbook for their enduring commitment to corporate sustainability.

Business leaders and long-term investors interested in measuring sustainability performance need skill and judgement, rooted in comprehensive, detailed, and trusted data and insights. That’s exactly the transparency they get in this Yearbook.

The Yearbook is the only analysis of its kind based on S&P Global’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment, or CSA. Today the CSA, backed by a quarter century of experience, is the go-to benchmarking resource for corporate sustainability performance.

I’m pleased to announce that over the past year, companies participating in the CSA remained very engaged, despite persistent headwinds created by an uncertain macroeconomic and geopolitical environment. I express our gratitude to the companies that actively participated in the CSA. Involving companies in the data collection and review process via the CSA has been at the foundation of our sustainability research approach for more than 20 years.

The people responsible for the CSA and Yearbook demonstrate exceptional knowledge, professionalism, and commitment in helping our clients navigate the transition to a sustainable future. My hope is that the Yearbook inspires anyone interested in corporate sustainability initiatives to make a positive impact.


Douglas L. Peterson
