Dun & Bradstreet Bolsters ESG Rankings Coverage

Data and analytics provider Dun & Bradstreet has expanded its public and private company ESG Rankings coverage from 42 million to 74 million firms across 185 countries. The expansion follows recent updates surrounding the materiality weighting assigned to the company’s ESG Rankings to better align with the Sustainability Accounting Board Standards (SASB). The standards aim to assist companies in communicating to investors how sustainability issues are driving long-term growth and promoting transparency and accountability in corporate sustainability reporting. The ESG Rankings from Dun & Bradstreet help companies strengthen their ESG goals, manage supply chain disruption risks, and perform marketing segmentation. Its latest expansion will see an increase in portfolio coverage for some current Dun & Bradstreet ESG customers, with approximately 68% of evaluated companies seeing their rankings change. Gary Kotovets, Chief Data and 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.”
