India Inc’s largest companies demonstrate Sustainability Disclosure and Reporting leadership
As Indian businesses gear up to meet global requirements of Environmental and Social Reporting, many of the leaders in sustainability reporting will be gathering on October 11, 2012 at the Annual Summit of the Sustainable Business Leadership Forum to deliberate on further enhancements and uptake of ever expanding sustainability disclosure mandates.
The summit will feature a dedicated track on Sustainability Reporting and disclosure. Many of India Inc’s leaders, proactively setting the benchmark on sustainability related disclosure, will participate in the deliberations. The thought leadership and reporting efforts of these corporates will be featured through the Parivartan Sustainable Disclosure Leadership Awards at the Summit plenary.
The 2012 Sustainability Disclosure Leadership Awards aim to recognize and felicitate leaders among the top 100 firms in India by market capitalization on their exemplary efforts in disclosing their non- financial performance on environment, social and governance parameters based on publicly disclosed information. Prominent companies under consideration include PSUs such as BPCL, GAIL and ONGC; IT majors such as TCS, Infosys and Wipro; and other progressive firms such as ITC, JSW Steel, L&T, M&M, Sesa Goa and Tata Motors.
The Sustainability Reporting benchmarks are only going to be raised in future, especially in light of the recent SEBI requirement that India’s largest 100 firms disclose their Sustainability actions in an Annual Business Responsibility Report. Sustainable Business Leadership Forum Annual Summit will also witness the launch of a working group tasked with examining issues around business Sustainability disclosure and investment in selected sectors.
