We are exceptionally pleased to announce that earlier this year, following review of MacCormick’s automated Social Performance Index (SPI) – (due to launch early 2017) that Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, Chairman of United Nations Global Compact, Board Member Saudi Aramco, FTSE ESG, and Hermes Investments (ex-Anglo, ex-Shell, ex-HSBC, ex-Accenture, ex- GRI)  has endorsed the product by remarking “MacCormick’s SPI is a very comprehensive rating system for ESG performance of mining with a particular emphasis on social performance. It is the most comprehensive and systematic rating system that I have seen and they are continuing to develop it” and further has joined MacCormick’s Advisory.

In light of recent global ratification and adoption of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the compounding growth and adoption of UN’s Principals for Responsible Investment (PRI), the MacCormick SPI is well positioned to contribute to global efforts in sustainable social development and impact, with an industry specific lens.
