About this Report

The information and data in this report cover S&P Global’s sustainability and corporate responsibility performance for calendar year 2022.

The merger with IHS Markit successfully closed on February 28, 2022. Unless otherwise noted, all information herein is representative of the company as of December 31, 2022. Unless specified, data for previous years is for S&P Global on a stand-alone basis prior to the merger.

CARFAX, a wholly owned subsidiary of S&P Global acquired through the merger with IHS Markit, is not included in the scope of the 2022 Impact Report, except the inclusion of its energy-related emissions in Scope 1 and Scope 2. CARFAX employees represent fewer than 4% of our total global employee workforce. 

S&P Global is a majority owner of CRISIL, which is governed by its own board and management team. It is not included within the scope of the 2022 Impact Report, except for the inclusion of its energy-related emissions in Scope 1, Scope 2, Scope 3 Business Travel and Water Consumption. CRISIL has issued its own sustainability report, which can be found here

S&P Global’s total employee count is 39,950. However, this report’s scope does not include CARFAX, CRISIL and Taiwan Ratings Corp., except for the calculated Scope 1 and 2 emissions (market-based) per employee, which are inclusive of all subsidiaries. Therefore, demographic data in this report accounts for 34,206 employees.

This report includes information on management and performance related to S&P Global’s material topics (as defined by the Global Reporting Initiative and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board) across our full value chain.

This report has been prepared with reference to the GRI Universal Standards and the SASB Standard for Professional & Commercial Services. Both content indexes, as well as our reporting against the World Economic Forum Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics, are located in the Appendix.

 S&P Global strives to provide data and information that is reliable and transparent. For data reporting and information about our third-party assurance, view the 2022 assurance statement here. Data from previous years has not been restated.
