IHS Markit Named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the Fifth Year in a Row
In the 2017 RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment, we showed progress across social, economic and environmental dimensions. Within these dimensions, the DJSI ranked IHS Markit above the 90th percentile for multiple areas: customer relationship management, materiality, occupational health and safety, talent attraction and retention, and human capital development.
In 2018, we received Bronze Class distinction in the RobecoSAM Sustainability Yearbook for our sustainability performance, achieving a score within five to ten percent of the industry's top performing company's score. We also received Bronze Class and Silver Class distinction in 2015 and 2016, respectively. For investors, the RobecoSAM's Sustainability Yearbook identifies companies that are strongly positioned to create long-term shareholder value. IHS Markit strives to develop and mature our sustainability processes as well as increase transparency so we can maintain our DJSI listing and recognition.
