HKTDC and Dun & Bradstreet Aid SMEs' ESG
The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Dun & Bradstreet (HK) Limited (D&B) announced a new partnership to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), start-ups, and Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) with green transformation by offering a comprehensive range of quality ESG registered services, namely D&B ESG Registered.
As a leading global provider of business decisioning data and analytics and the HKTDC’s recognised ESG partner, D&B further demonstrates its commitment to promoting environmental, social and governance (ESG) to companies, large and small, in Hong Kong to enhance their competitiveness and drive growth.
A D&B ESG Registered badge and profile will be presented to companies that have successfully completed the required assessment as a recognition of their commitment to disclosing ESG data. This ESG service aims to support companies in expanding their businesses, enhancing their reputation, and attracting investors while achieving their net-zero targets.
Managing Director of Dun & Bradstreet China - Mainland and Hong Kong SAR, Mr Andrew Wu, said: “Dun & Bradstreet is privileged to be part of it to support and drive a sustainable ecosystem for SMEs. To have our ESG solutions recognised by HKTDC, a statutory body in HK, for not just large corporations and listed companies, but also the SMEs, start-ups and the MSMEs… as the UNSDGs’ (United Nations Sustainable Development Group) motto states, “Leave no one behind”.
Dun & Bradstreet Hong Kong as the recognised Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) partner of Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) sets an excellent example of D&B’s strong reputation as a global provider of reliable business decisioning data and analytics.”
HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Dr Patrick Lau said: “We are pleased to join hands with Dun & Bradstreet (HK) Limited to support Hong Kong enterprises in capitalising on the global trend towards sustainability.”
Under the partnership, D&B will provide discounted ESG registered services for members of HKTDC’s Transformation Sandbox (T-box), a comprehensive business support programme launched in April 2020 to help SMEs upgrade and transform. “We are certain that local companies will enhance their ESG competitiveness with the help of a world-leading service provider in the field, such as Dun & Bradstreet,” Dr Patrick Lau added.
