There is a growing awareness among business entities about the implications of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) risks. Corporates are keen to understand how ESG impacts all the aspects of businesses right from supplier selection, customer retention, employee engagement to areas of management compensation. New disclosure norms such as the Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report (BRSR) and the rising popularity of Green Bonds have made ESG an even more formidable investment option. Investors and lenders are getting keener to understand how to factor in ESG principles while constructing a strong portfolio.
