The D&B ESG Ranking model is based on 31 ESG topics across 13 themes (4 Environmental, 6 Social, and 3 Governance) that comprise the D&B ESG Framework. The D&B ESG ranking is calculated using data from a variety of government sources, public sources, private data sources, third-party certifications, D&B proprietary business information, as well as information provided to D&B by subject companies that has been validated by D&B where appropriate. D&B only assigns an ESG ranking to an organization for which it has sufficient data to adequately evaluate at least 4 of the 13 themes. D&B ESG Ranking uses a 5-point scale to indicate levels of risk or performance in ESG, with 1 indicating low risk or best performance and 5 as high risk or worst performance.
Organizations may voluntarily submit additional ESG-related data to contribute to their ESG ranking using a self-assessment process. Voluntarily submitted ESG-related data may or may not have an effect on an organization’s D&B ESG ranking, and any actual effects may be positive or negative. Any organization that directly submits ESG-related data about its business to D&B for evaluation will have an opportunity to request deletion of its directly submitted data in the published D&B ESG Ranking for its organization. D&B will review such requests, and their impact on the integrity of D&B’s ESG Ranking Model, in accordance with applicable laws for as long as it retains such data. Once an organization’s directly submitted data has been included in that organization’s published D&B ESG ranking, it can be updated periodically with new information.
