We’re proud to announce that McGraw Hill Financial has been named a Natural Capital Efficiency Leader for 2014. The honor means we’re environmentally efficient while increasing business. We’re extremely proud and thank Trucost for the #naturalcapital honors!

"The first multilateral trade agreement in almost 20 years now stands tantalizingly within reach," writes Harold McGraw, chairman of McGraw Hill Financial and the International Chamber of Commerce as the World Trade Organization WTO OMC meets in Bali.

Demonstrating that giving back is essential, S&P Capital IQ employees in Hyderabad recently visited 22 schools around the local area to stress the importance of environmental awareness. This effort was in conjunction with the launch of McGraw Hill Financial. More than 200 employees worked with over 8,600 students to clean school grounds and engage in classroom conversation about the importance of taking care of India’s valuable natural resources.  Volunteers also held elocution and essay-writing competitions to reinforce concepts of environmentalism and respect for nature. 

“When we decided to plan a big offsite volunteerism effort in recognition of the MHFI brand launch, we were not sure how to gather volunteers to cover 22 schools on such short notice. But to our surprise, the response was overwhelming,” said Senior Director Prabhakar Rao Kotapati, S&P Capital IQ. “I always wonder to see the spirit of service of our volunteers, which exhibits their commitment to community service. This project reinforced our strengths to do more for our community,” he continued.

Volunteer Sunitha Lakshmi Kumari Thadepalli also commented on the experience: “It is our responsibility to serve the society around us. I feel proud that I participated in one such program. It was a wonderful experience spending time with school children.”

This program aligns with the Hyderabad office’s Green Team initiative, launched in June on the eve of “World Environment Day”, to measure the amount of food that is wasted in the site cafeteria each day – food which might otherwise go to feed India’s homeless population.  Green Team volunteers worked to measure the uneaten food by weighing each day’s discarded food and tracking the waste.  Since launching the program, the Hyderabad office has reduced its food waste by 50%.

We’re very proud of all the great work by our employees around the world. MHFI truly believes that giving back is essential.

The Corporate Responsibility team is excited to announce that McGraw Hill Financial has been ranked in the Top 10 of CR Magazine’s Best Corporate Citizens Industry List for 2013. The rankings are based on CR Magazine’s 320 components of corporate responsibility performance and an in depth analysis of seven categories across all industries: environment, employee relations, human rights, climate change, finance, philanthropy and governance.

McGraw Hill Financial moved up from its 16th rank in 2012, thanks in part to our Company’s commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, enhancing employee engagement and increasing transparency.

 Our accomplishment will be highlighted in the September/October issue of CR Magazine! The following initiatives are just a few reasons why McGraw Hill Financial earned this coveted spot:

Work-Life Programs: McGraw Hill Financial’s progressive array of family-friendly programs and resources were among the determining factors in making CR Magazine’s list. The Corporation offers flexible work arrangements and part-time options; adoption assistance; child care options; back-up dependent care; eldercare and special needs case management, among many other employee benefits.

Expanding Employee Engagement Opportunities: The McGraw Hill Financial Green Team initiative serves office locations and employees around the world, including those in Brazil, India and Troy, MI. Our Green Teams champion environmentally friendly behavior in 17 office locations, and we are continuing to expand our network (learn more). Also, through McGraw Hill Financial’s Employee Volunteer Grants and matching programs, the Company has sponsored numerous volunteer opportunities and donated thousands of dollars to help employees serve their communities.

Responsible Supply Chain Strategy: In collaboration with Global Procurement, the Company has developed a Supplier Code of Conduct that spells out what McGraw Hill Financial expects of its suppliers in conducting business responsibly. McGraw Hill introduced a CR Scorecard to evaluate the performance of key non-manufacturing suppliers in seven categories, including business ethics, environmental impact, health and safety, diversity and human rights. The corporation also hosts a Supplier Summit every year that brings industry leaders together to innovate and implement new sustainable supply chain operations.

Delivering Financial Essentials: We consider basic financial knowledge to be an essential tool of modern life and a key foundation of social and economic inclusion. Working with our nonprofit partners, we equip under-served individuals with the financial essentials to make decisions and thrive in the economy. We focus especially on women and youth as well as groups with unique needs, such as U.S. military families.  Among the highlights is our partnership with Pro Mujer to provide local women entrepreneurs in Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru with the financial skills to help them start their own businesses. We developed the My Military& Money App and website ( together with the Better Business Bureau’s Military Line to provide military families with basic financial education and budgeting tools to help them gain financial freedom.

The Corporate Responsibility team is continually evaluating new ways McGraw Hill Financial can support Financial Essentials, Stronger Communities and Healthier Environments.
