Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
What makes a company responsible? At McGraw-Hill Education, we believe it is a commitment to transparency, integrity and sustainability. These core values guide all of our efforts whether it is our unwavering commitment to creating customer value, our dedication to protecting the environment, or our pledge to contribute in meaningful ways to society at large.
We partner around the world with students, educators, administrators and other professionals to deliver engaging, adaptive and personalized solutions that improve performance and results. In support of this mission we are committed to responsible business practices that enhance the economic, social and environmental well-being of the communities where we work and live.
Our ongoing commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability is seen in many ways around our company. We’re deeply proud of these efforts, which include:
- The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education annually recognizes outstanding individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education in this country and whose accomplishments are making a difference today
- In 2011, our office in Dubuque, Iowa, received Energy Star and Gold LEED status
- We contribute to thought leadership on significant educational issues through the McGraw-Hill Research Foundation
- In partnership with the New York Public Library, we launched a citywide book amnesty program which made it possible for 8,700 young adults to return to the library
