Bisnode’s core business is to support corporate processes in terms of credit and business decisions as well as marketing information through the use of data-driven solutions, making it easier for the company’s customers to make smart decisions. Bisnode uses local and global data of the highest quality from more than 550 data sources. Abstract data is analysed and interpreted into relevant material for business decisions. Bisnode operates in 19 European countries, and supplies local and global quality data to companies, government agencies, organisations and municipalities through its strategic partner Dun & Bradstreet.
The European data and analysis market is growing in both B2B and B2C. The total European market is estimated to be around EUR 6 billion. It is expected to continue to grow as digitisation, globalisation and new technologies facilitate faster and more cost- effective processing of large volumes of data.
During the year, Bisnode continued its development of data-driven analysis products and the transformation of its offering and merger into a joint platform, which will ultimately lead to improved profitability.
In pace with the digital transformation, digital sustainability has been identified as Bisnode’s most significant sustainability issue taking into account Bisnode’s business model. Digital sustainability includes data security, data protection and personal integrity. In 2019, Bisnode continued to pursue the transition to a renewable energy supply in its offices and servers. Bisnode is convinced that diversity and a cohesive workplace drives innovation and attracts talent. Consequently, the company endeavours to increase the share of women in the company, particularly in executive positions. This commitment to sustainability is regulated in our Code of Conduct, which is based on the UN Global Compact.
