In 2012, MacCormick released the world’s first Social Performance Index (SPI) which measures company’s social performance against international standards and in correlation to their financial performance. Initially, the SPI was offered as a free publication.

In 2017, MacCormick will release the digitized and enhanced version of the SPI which will be made available by subscription to content. Learn more about the upcoming edition of the SPI.

Mission, Vision, Values


To influence, From Intentions to Impact™, responsible mining practices globally in accordance with international best practice standards.


We envision MacCormick’s SPI as the ultimate standard for third-party validation for social performance criteria across frameworks and industries.


MacCormick will conduct their business responsibly at all times by aligning their strategies and operations with many global best practice frameworks. We will deliver superior quality service to our clients without compromising our firm’s integrity or values.


"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."

"The ability to connect and create a partnership with local communities is the single most important relationship foundation a mining business can create in terms of establishing a long term sustainable venture. The MacCormick Team understands this imperative and is building the expertise to help put good ideas into action, on the ground, where it counts."

"The MacCormick SPI is an idea whose time has come. You couldn’t have done this five years ago you would have had a bunch of zeroes. The time is ripe for people to appreciate the value of this kind of index."
