In these troubled times, Altares is committed to its customers, partners and employees. At a time when our countries are going through a new phase of the sanitary crisis with various types of lockdown imposed in some of them, we are maintaining full services and are working hard to enhance our solutions and information assets.
Brussels, 15 July 2020 – Altares Dun & Bradstreet, the specialist in business data, has won a tender for the European Commission. The parties have concluded a master agreement, making Altares Dun & Bradstreet’s products and services available to the entities covered by the Commission. The agreement will be valid for a period of four years and will allow the European Commission and its subordinate entities to use Altares Dun & Bradstreet’s database, which contains data from more than 370 million companies, to carry out secure analyses and take information-driven decisions.
The health and safety of Altares employees, customers, and partners is of paramount importance. We are closely monitoring the development of the coronavirus and taking precautionary measures as needed. We follow the guidelines and instructions of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in The Netherlands, the Federal Public Health Service (Federale Overheidsdienst Volksgezondheid) in Belgium, and the national authorities in the Benelux.
On behalf of all Altares employees, I would like to address you directly about the recent developments concerning the coronavirus epidemic.
