Sustainable Development Goals

We are part of the world’s largest sustainability initiative. Together we can make a difference!

We fight data misuse, climate change & poverty

Since 2015, Dun & Bradstreet has been a signatory of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest sustainability initiative. It was launched by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 2000 with the intention of bringing the UN and business closer in the work for a better world. Our sustainability work is based on the ten guiding principles concerning human rights, labor rights, environmental care, and anticorruption. As a participant of the UN Global Compact, Dun & Bradstreet supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

What is the UN Global Compact?

The United Nations Global Compact is a non-binding United Nations pact to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. The UN Global Compact supports companies to:
  • Do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with the Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption
  • Take strategic action to advance the Sustainable Development Goals

The UN Global Compact supports companies to become more sustainable by setting ambitions that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Today, there are 17 SDGs that were decided upon commonly by world countries and various stakeholders – to be achieved by 2030. This is an essential job for us to help accomplish.
