Social - Improving the health and wellness of our communities
Corporate Sustainability drives our business practices and is a critical aspect of our values and culture. Along with being a signatory to the Women's Empowerment Principles (WEP), our IHS Markit Sustainability Policy and commitment to diversity and inclusion guide us to be a responsible employer and corporate citizen. We are proud of the continued progress in creating a culture of sustainability and a workplace where colleagues are offered excellent benefits and opportunities to grow and thrive. As one of America's 50 most community-minded companies in the 2016 Civic 50, we actively support our communities through philanthropy and citizenship efforts. IHS Markit colleagues contributed over 49,000 volunteer hours in 2017. This included efforts in EMEA, APAC and the Americas, supporting local efforts to support education, especially STEM, health and wellness and the environment.
