Pardon our appearance; we are in the process of updating our website to reflect McGraw Hill Financial’s 2014 Corporate Responsibility reporting.
CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY AT MHFI: IT’S ESSENTIAL
Conducting business with fairness, integrity and transparency is the hallmark of our company and is the foundation for our Corporate Responsibility (CR). Our commitment to CR embraces not just how we operate but what we do. It helps drive our growing global business by informing our ability to provide essential market intelligence.
Our Corporate Responsibility efforts focus on areas where we can make the biggest positive impact on society:
- Strengthening capital markets and supporting access to capital, which in turn creates economic opportunity and jobs
- Tapping employee expertise to build stronger, sustainable communities, an engaged workforce and lasting relationships with our neighbors
- Developing products and services that serve the growing sustainability marketplace while making our own operations more efficient and sustainable
- Awarding innovative grants that promote job growth through financial empowerment and helping to grow the small business community.
We believe everyone benefits from this responsible approach to doing business – our brands, shareholders, employees, suppliers, communities and the wider society.
OUR STRATEGY: CREATING OPPORTUNITY, BUILDING COMMUNITY
McGraw Hill Financial’s Corporate Responsibility strategy is designed to maximize our societal and business impact. It aligns with our corporate objective to promote sustainable financial growth and reflects the priorities and expertise of our iconic individual businesses.
Launched in 2014, the strategy draws on insights and feedback from executives and employee focus groups across the company as well as input from external stakeholders. Focusing on issues most material to our business, the strategy streamlines our CR programs, practices and report under the following two pillars:
Financial Essentials - create economic opportunities, access to finance and jobs by providing fundamental financial knowledge and tools.
Community Essentials – build thriving communities by developing and connecting our employees and enhancing the environment.
Our goal is to achieve transformative global change both inside and outside the company, in the areas shown in the graphic to the left.
Programs and projects in these areas – from empowering micro and small enterprises to providing products on environmental risks can be found in our Corporate Responsibility Vision Brochure and our 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report.
