S&P Global Accelerates Progress on Near-term Corporate Sustainability Goals

S&P Global (NYSE: SPGI) today released three reports capturing the Company’s continued commitments to a sustainable future that supports a net-zero economy:
*2022 Impact Report
*Inaugural standalone Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Report
*Its fifth report in line with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

“Proactive, transparent disclosures continue to be a pillar of our approach to corporate sustainability,” said Ewout Steenbergen, Chief Financial Officer for S&P Global. “Our latest reports illustrate that our work to enhance our sustainability position has not only continued in a positive direction but accelerated. While the risk and opportunities for ESG are ever evolving, as an organization, we are prepared to meet the challenge.”

Key enhancements outlined in the 2022 Impact Report included updating the Company’s near-term targets for progressing toward net-zero carbon emissions, namely:
*25% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions intensity (per square foot) by 2025
*25% reduction in absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions from employee business travel by 2025
*81% of our spend with suppliers who set their own science-based targets by 2025

The Company also announced the addition of nature-based environmental targets that complement its net-zero goal for carbon. The new targets include:
*Removal of single-use plastic across all global office operations by 2025
*Zero-waste for all global locations by 2030, including those where services are controlled by a landlord
/Water net-zero for all global locations by 2030, including those where services are controlled by a landlord

The Company’s first standalone Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Report is an important milestone that reinforces S&P Global’s commitment to advancing DEI efforts in line with its People First philosophy. The DEI Report builds on prior impact reporting to illustrate the Company’s progress in its first year post-the merger with IHS Markit.
