    HONG KONG – (ACN Newswire) – 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(TM).

    As a leading global provider of business decisioning data and analytics and the HKTDC’s recognised ESG partner, D&B further demonstrates its commitment in 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 commitment to disclosing ESG data. This ESG service aims to support companies to expand their business, enhance their reputation and attract investors, while achieving their net-zero targets.

    Drive sustainable ecosystem for SMEs

    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.”
