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.”
