ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- July 1, 2013

IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of critical information and
insight, today announced the publication of its inaugural Corporate
Sustainability Report. The report is available online and covers performance
for the 2012 calendar year. The contents encompass our key non-financial
performance metrics and goals, as well as providing an overview of our
commitments for the future.

“Our sustainability culture is evolving and growing as rapidly as IHS itself,”
said IHS President and CEO Scott Key. “We are proud to publicly share the
progress we have made on the social, environmental and economic aspects of our
operations. We believe that our focus on sustainability helps us increase our
competitiveness as a company, and also allows us to contribute to the
betterment of the social and economic conditions of the communities where we
operate.”

The 2012 Sustainability Report describes the IHS initiatives in three focus
areas: “Live Well,” “Live Wise” and “Live Green.” Among the report’s
highlights:

“Live Well”— In 2012, IHS introduced a global benefit under which all
colleagues have a full paid day off to share their time in the community
through volunteering. Colleagues also have opportunities to participate in
healthy lifestyle programs such as the Prevention Plan, where they can learn
and track healthy life choices and access information to improve their health
and wellness.

“Live Wise”— IHS colleagues are working, volunteering and supporting
communities around the world, sharing information and helping to advance
education, career development and knowledge. For example, in July 2012 as part
of Geoscience Day, elementary school students visited the IHS office in
Houston, Texas, to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and
math (STEM).

“Live Green”— IHS continuously works to understand and address its
environmental impacts and identify areas for improvement. In 2012, IHS
streamlined print infrastructure by more than 80 percent, reduced energy use
by 16 percent compared with 2011, and recorded a 29 percent overall reduction
in waste.
