In India, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors are steadily gaining traction. There is increasing collaboration among government bodies and the corporate ecosystem to implement ESG principles, recognizing the urgent need to combat climate
change and protect the country’s natural resources. Regulatory authorities such as the Securities and Exchange Board of
India (SEBI) have become instrumental in mandating ESG reporting, pushing it beyond mere compliance to focus on impactful, measurable outcomes. For example, Indian companies are taking initiatives to contribute to environmental sustainability by embracing renewable energy, waste management systems, and eco-friendly manufacturing processes. Technological solutions such as cleantech are also aiding these
companies in better assessing and
reporting their ESG contributions.
