ESG Book, a top provider of sustainability data and technology worldwide, has established a strategic partnership with BDO Sunghyun in Korea. BDO Sunghyun is an independent member of BDO International Limited, a global network of firms offering professional services such as public accounting, tax, and advisory services in 164 countries.

The partnership will enable BDO Sunghyun's clients to access ESG Book's extensive data solutions, which include ESG and climate data, company and portfolio-level scores, and analytics tools. ESG Book's CEO, Dr. Daniel Klier, expressed his pleasure at the partnership, stating that technology-enabled solutions are necessary to meet increasingly complex ESG requirements and direct capital towards more sustainable and higher-impact assets.

Kil-bae Yoon, Managing Partner at BDO Sunghyun, stated that global standards demand the disclosure and evaluation of ESG data but obtaining sufficiently transparent and comparable ESG data for market stakeholders can be challenging. ESG Book's disclosure and evaluation capabilities, in this regard, will be a game-changer, and the partnership will help Korean companies carry out sustainable management on an international level.

ESG Book offers sustainability-related data, scoring, and technology products that are used by many of the world's largest investors, financial institutions, and corporations. Its platform enables companies to own their data and disclose it directly to stakeholders across multiple frameworks in real-time. ESG Book has the largest corporate disclosure database globally, with over 135,000 corporate sustainability disclosures available on the platform.

BDO Sunghyun, based in Seoul, has three other offices in Busan, Changwon, and Daegu and nearly 300 professionals. BDO Sunghyun established the ESG Center in 2021, comprising 20 internal and external experts and provides advisory and assurance services meeting international ESG evaluation standards. Korea's leading corporations are increasingly embracing ESG standards to meet growing regulatory and market requirements, with 90% of Korea's 100 largest corporations operating a separate ESG division.
