Business data and analytics provider Dun & Bradstreet announced a significant expansion in its ESG rankings, growing coverage to 74 million public and private companies, from 42 million.
The expansion follows the launch of the rankings in 2021, and make up part of the company’s ESG Intelligence solutions, designed to enable companies to assess and track business partners’ sustainability performance and activities.
Aimed at helping users assess ESG risks and opportunities, the rankings are organized into 13 ESG themes and 31 topic categories, using data gathered from millions of sources, and are structured around sustainability frameworks including CDP, SASB, GRI, TCFD, the UN PRI and UN SGDs.
Additional ESG tools launched by the company include ESG on Risk Analytics for managing risks in supply chain and vendor portfolios, ESG Self-Assessment, a survey for procurement managers to assess vendors, and ESG Registered, an “ESG Seal” companies can earn by completing the self assessment.
Gary Kotovets, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at Dun & Bradstreet, said:
“This expansion increases the depth and breadth of our ESG data coverage, and further strengthens Dun & Bradstreet’s position in the ESG space as organizations seek to make sustainable decisions with confidence.”
