At Enterslice, we understand the importance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects in today's business world. Our ESG services enable business practices in a way that enhances their long-term sustainability, reputation, and financial performance.
ESG investment has grown in popularity in recent years due to investors' increased awareness of the financial risks of environmental and social issues and the potential for long-term outperformance of companies concerning ESG. Investors can identify companies that manage environmental and social risks and opportunities by incorporating ESG aspects into their investing decisions. Enterslice offers a tailor-made solution to understand business opportunities; investing in ESG, investors can use capital markets to assess businesses and be informed in their investment decisions.
These considerations range from a company's carbon footprint to its handling of garbage to its usage of renewable energy. Companies wanting to lessen their environmental impact and build a sustainable future must consider these environmental criteria.
Consider how a business affects employee diversity, inclusion, and human rights policies. Social criteria are crucial for businesses aiming to make a meaningful contribution to society and maintain their moral and ethical business practices.
Board diversity, executive salary, and shareholder rights are all governance criteria. Governance standards are crucial for businesses aiming to conduct themselves properly and ethically, concentrating on openness and accountability.
In 2009, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) released Voluntary Guidelines on Corporate Social Responsibility, introducing the idea of ESG reporting to India. The National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct (NGRBC) and Business Responsibility Reporting (BRR) were introduced. The adoption of sustainable practices and these guidelines for businesses promote the reporting of ESG performance.
The Indian Companies Act 2013 introduced one of the companies' earliest ESG disclosure requirements. Under this Act, Indian companies must include details regarding energy conservation and annual financial statements in their reports. Further, the director of an Indian company has a statutory duty to act in good faith to promote the company's objectives for the benefit of its members and in the interests of the company, the shareholders, employees, the community, and the protection of the environment.
SEBI has introduced several guidelines related to ESG reporting in recent years. In 2021, SEBI introduced the Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting (BRSR) requirement for listed entities. The BRSR wants disclosures from listed entities on their performance against the nine principles given under the National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct. Each principle is divided into essential and leading indicators, which should be mandatorily reported. Reporting leading indicators is voluntary, but listed entities should also endeavour to report the indicators.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDAI), in addition to MCA and SEBI, have also released recommendations for ESG reporting for businesses operating in the banking and insurance sectors, respectively. Companies must follow these rules to implement sustainable practices and to disclose their ESG performance.
