  • SES ESG Research Private Ltd. (SES ESG), a wholly owned subsidiary of Stakeholders Empowerment Services (SES), said it had received the ‘Certificate of Registration as an ESG (environment, social and governance) Ratings Provider’ (ERP) from market regulator SEBI.

  • SES began ESG ratings in 2018-19. Its coverage has now increased to more than 500 companies. This could rise further based on client needs, the firm said.

ESG (environment, social and governance) Ratings 

  • Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals are a set of standards for a company’s operations that force companies to follow better governance, ethical practices, environment-friendly measures and social responsibility.

    • Environmental criteria consider how a company performs as a steward of nature.

    • Social criteria examine how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates.

    • Governance deals with a company’s leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls, and shareholder rights.

Importance - 

  • It focuses on non-financial factors as a metric for guiding investment decisions wherein increased financial returns is no longer the sole objective of investors.

  • In recent years, the environmental, social and governance (ESG) investments have emerged as a subject of great interest and significance across the globe.

  • The ESG investments lead to public good as well as make business sense. They are beneficial for both —the shareholders and all other stakeholders.

  • The ESG rating providers (ERPs) offer rating products in two categories: 

(1) risk ratings: an assessment of a company’s resilience to ESG related risks, and 

(2) “impact” ratings: an assessment of the impact of a company’s operations on the environment and society.

  • Globally, there are no universally recognised ESG reporting standards and frameworks
