Sustainability and ESG Solutions: An Overview

The business climate in India is extremely dynamic, and both the company’s stakeholders and market regulators are significant. The stakeholders prefer investing in a company that is concerned with preserving the environment because they are aware of the interdependence between business and the environment and how business operations can have an impact on the environment. This makes sustainability and ESG Compliance by companies necessary.

The sustainability practise assists businesses with the planning, sourcing, delivery, financing, and measurement of the whole effect of their goods and services. By enhancing their agility, resilience, and sustainability, as well as their ability to identify risks and seize opportunities, we are assisting organisations in becoming more future-proof.

Our team consults with customers from the business, private equity, and public sectors on a variety of topics.

Meaning of ESG

Environmental, Social, and Governance, or ESG, is an abbreviation for the specific data created for use by investors to assess the material risk faced by the firm based on the externalities produced by it.

Such information can also be used within an organisation as metrics for strategic and managerial purposes, as well as by investors for purposes beyond these, like the evaluation of enterprise value. Specifically, models based on assumptions like identification, assessment, and management of sustainability-related risks and opportunities with respect to all organisational stakeholders can be developed, which increases long-term risk-adjusted return. Customers, suppliers, employees, the leadership, and the environment are just a few examples of organisational stakeholders.

Regulatory Framework for ESG

Ministry of Corporate Affairs

The introduction of Business Responsibility Reporting (BRR), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct marked the beginning of ESG reporting in India in 2009. MCA released Voluntary Guidelines on Corporate Social Responsibility as the first step in this process (NGRBC)

The Companies Act 2013

One of the earliest ESG disclosure requirements for businesses was implemented by the Indian Companies Act, which mandates that Indian corporations provide yearly financial statements and information on energy conservation from their board of directors in their reports. The director of an Indian company is also required by law to act in the best interests of the firm, its shareholders, employees, the community, and the environment in order to advance the company’s goals for the benefit of all of its members.


The Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report (“BRSR”), which replaced regulation 34 (2) (f) of the SEBI (Listing Obligation and Disclosure Obligations) Regulation, 2015, was adopted by SEBI on May 10, 2021. (“LODR Regulations”). A guidance note was included to help the companies understand the disclosures’ scope. The BRSR requests disclosures from publicly traded companies regarding their performance in relation to the nine “National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct” (NGBRCs) principles. For each of these principles, reporting is broken down into mandatory and optional leadership indicators. Listed companies should make an effort to include the leading indications in their reports.

Benefits of ESG for Business

ESG can benefit the business in the following ways

Reduced Costs and increased profits

By reducing the number of resources required to run the business, the ESG approach to operations can improve the effectiveness of the company, which will result in cheaper costs, more profitability, and better decision-making. In addition, sustainability efforts may involve initial capital outlays in addition to providing long-term advantages including a competitive edge, productivity increases, and decreased risk exposure. Future operational costs are frequently cheaper as a result of such investments.

The attraction of new customers, investors and lenders

As ESG can demonstrate the company’s seriousness about its social responsibility, thereby attracting people who align with its vision and values, helping the company to find potential partners and collaborators who may have similar goals or interests, the incorporation of ESG standards can also benefit the business through the attraction of new customers, investors, and lenders. Due to the fact that these people frequently talk about their experiences with the companies they support, this may result in more referrals.

Mitigation of risks and building resilience

The ESG guidelines aid the company in reducing risk and increasing efficiency. The unpredictability brought on by the changing economic climate and disruptive technology, however, is one of the biggest problems facing today’s corporate leaders. Implementing ESG principles can assist the company build a resilient organisation by addressing issues with product design, distribution strategy, customer service, sourcing strategy, and workforce management.

Attract Talent and Improve Employee Loyalty

It is true for all employees, not just the management staff who are frequently vocal about their feelings, that showing appreciation to the workforce can make them feel happy, included, and valued. As a sustainable business, the organisation may foster an inclusive culture and provide staff members the freedom to voice their thoughts without worrying about consequences, which will increase their productivity, engagement, and commitment to the business.

Improved corporate Image and higher brand value

Several studies have shown that consumers are more likely to favour and trust companies with sustainable practises than those without because they are interested in the steps the company has made to minimise its carbon footprint and ensure the responsible use of resources.

By ensuring that a company is upholding its principles and satisfying the needs of its consumers, applying ESG standards to its operations can help it retain a positive reputation and foster trust. In a sector where most businesses find it challenging to strike a balance between profit margins and ethical considerations, this results in increased brand value and a competitive edge.
