At IHS, Corporate Sustainability is vital to the way we do business and is a critical aspect of our values and our culture. Corporate Sustainability is one of the five IHS top company goals. The IHS Sustainability Policy is in place to help us achieve this goal, with an increased focus on improved public reporting to provide greater insight regarding environmental and social dimensions. This also includes an increased focus on metrics, tracking and goal setting on operational eco-efficiency; continued commitment to and support of citizenship and philanthropy, and strengthening corporate governance focus.

IHS is committed to the highest ethical conduct as outlined in the IHS code of conduct in all aspects of business, including Human Rights, Labor, Environment and Anti-Corruption. IHS operates from our core values of Teamwork, Respect, Accountability, Integrity and Innovation as demonstrated every day by all colleagues, management and the board. IHS respects fundamental human rights and views them as a key component of responsible corporate citizenship, supporting the fundamental principles contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Ruggie Framework. IHS is a signatory to the World Economic Forum, Partnership Against Corruption (PACI). Further, all colleagues are required to complete annual ethics training, which includes review of knowledge and adherence to the code of conduct. IHS has established a Business Code of Conduct Hotline by which colleagues, business partners and other interested third parties may submit good faith reports regarding suspected unethical or illegal behavior or other violations of company policy. These reports may be made without fear of retaliation of any kind.
IHS is committed to finding practical ways to apply those principles in our daily operations, interactions with customers and in our communities. And at the local level, IHS colleagues contribute to, and share their time in communities around the world to improve life and the sustainability of communities for others through volunteering and philanthropic efforts, with a focus on advancing education, health and wellness and environmental sustainability.

In addition to supporting the fundamental principles contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we are committed to finding practical ways to apply those principles in our daily operations, interactions with customers and in our communities. The business of IHS is based on the need for knowledge and information. We believe that education is a key component to a healthy society and a right for every individual. IHS colleagues around the world support efforts to advance education, the environment and health and wellness, having shared over 15,000 hours helping communities in 2013. This includes efforts in EMEA, APAC and the Americas, supporting local schools through provision of necessary materials such as books, computers and other supplies. In some instances we are helping to provide access to clean water, tutoring, career and life guidance.
