The 2015 Bloomberg Impact Report Update provides a detailed look at Bloomberg’s sustainability efforts and outcomes from the past year and details commitments for the future. The report also features an introductory letter from founder Mike Bloomberg.

The Impact Report Update conforms not only to GRI G4 guidelines but also to SASB standards. Last year Bloomberg was the first company to disclose sustainability data using the provisional SASB standards. Bloomberg has been releasing Sustainability reports and updates annually, since 2009. The report, as in previous years, has been 3rd party verified.

Here are a few highlights from the 2015 Bloomberg Impact Report Update:

  • The number of customers using Environmental, Social & Governance data has grown 41% annually since 2009
  • Bloomberg employees volunteered over 86,845 hours in 2015
  • Bloomberg has eliminated 550,084 tonnes of CO2e and saved $81 million since 2008 by maintaining a focus on projects that reduce environmental impacts and generate positive financial return
  • 81% of Bloomberg employees engaged in Diversity and Inclusion, Wellness, Philanthropy and Engagement and Sustainability efforts
  • A special section in this year’s report outlines and summarizes Mike Bloomberg, Bloomberg Philanthropies and the company's role in the COP21 negotiations 

Bloomberg, the global business and financial information and news leader, gives influential decision makers a critical edge by connecting them to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. The company's strength – delivering data, news and analytics through innovative technology, quickly and accurately – is at the core of the Bloomberg Professional service, which provides real time financial information to more than 327,000 subscribers globally.
