Dun & Bradstreet India helps companies become ESG compliant
Dun & Bradstreet India has launched a suite of solutions called D&B ESG Intelligence, to help organisations become ESG-compliant, by conducting self-assessments, as well as accessing third-party ESG reports on suppliers, vendors and other supply chain partners.
Speaking about the importance of ESG, Avinash Gupta, Managing Director and CEO – India, Dun & Bradstreet said, “Across the globe, ESG has become a mainstay of conversation in corporate boardrooms and, more importantly, in the allocation of capital. According to a Dun & Bradstreet survey highlighting top compliance and procurement challenges, 51% respondents said they needed more data to verify entities and 43% said it is difficult to identify the application of ESG guidelines when carrying out due diligence on a customer. Inefficient data usage and management are at the core of such challenges.”
Many Indian companies are still dependent on manual processes to collect internal ESG data such as water consumption, carbon emissions, workforce demographics, etc., and therefore these data resources are often housed across databases in different formats.
“Digitizing these processes and products will save time and money, expediting the speed of decision making. A 360-degree ESG intelligence solution can improve the structuring of data, offer a clear view of all business relationships and enable companies to align their ESG data to meet their ESG goals. The structured data will also help build a universal ESG framework, which all stakeholders will find beneficial,” added Gupta about how ESG intelligence can help organisations stay compliant.
Preeta Misra, Senior Director, Dun & Bradstreet India said, “D&B ESG Intelligence delivers data and analytics built from the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud and established sustainability standards to help companies quantify and assess the impact of their business partners' sustainability rankings on their company’s performance. This will enable compliance and procurement teams to generate insights that help strengthen their ESG goals and policies, and streamline their ESG assessment processes. Further, ESG self-reports and assessments will help MSMEs understand where they stand in their ESG journey. This will help MSMEs while integrating with the global supply chains.”
