Sebi – Regulatory Framework for value chain ESG disclosures for listed entities
Sebi came out with a regulatory framework for listed entities on ESG disclosures on supply chain and assurance.
Sebi has introduced BRSR Core, a sub-set of the BRSR (Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report), comprising nine Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for several E, S and G factors that need to be assured. Under the framework, large listed companies will have to make disclosures and obtain assurance as per ‘BRSR Core’ for their value chain.
Keeping in view the relevance to the Indian market context, few new KPIs have been identified for assurance such as job creation in small towns, openness of business and gross wages paid to women. Further, for better global comparability, intensity ratios based on revenue adjusted for purchasing power parity have been included.
In addition, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has introduced disclosures and assurance for the value chain of listed entities, as per the BRSR Core. In the supply chain, Sebi said that ESG disclosures according to the BRSR Core for the top 250 companies on a comply-or-explain basis will start from 2024-25, with assurance beginning the following year, according to a circular.
Disclosures for the value chain will be made by the listed company as per BRSR Core as part of its annual report. In this regard, the value chain would encompass the top upstream and downstream partners of a listed entity, cumulatively comprising 75 per cent of its purchases or sales by value, respectively.
As per Sebi, listed entities will have to report the KPIs in the BRSR Core for their value chain to the extent it is attributable to their business with that value chain partner. Such reporting may be segregated for upstream and downstream partners or can be reported on an aggregate basis. Sebi also said the board of the listed entity will have to ensure that the assurance provider of the BRSR Core has the necessary expertise for undertaking reasonable assurance. Further, the listed entity would have to ensure that there is no conflict of interest with the assurance provider appointed to assure the BRSR Core. For instance, it needs to be ensured that the assurance provider or any of its associates do not sell its products or provide any non-audit related service, including consulting services, to the listed entity or its group entities

Environment, Social and Governance are the three facets that characterise sustainable responsible investing for any organisation.
The rise of ESG standards in construction industry is expected to create a resilient and successful marketplace with long-term benefits fo stakeholders through a coordinated attempt to reduce the negative impacts on the environment.
The ESG framework for construction projects is developed in similar lines to the green building certification requirements, making green buildings a subset of it. The following are the key ESG parameters considered for any construction project:
Energy savings and carbon emissions offset
Labour health, safety and environment
Enforcement of labour laws
Waste and Water management
Awareness of staff welfare and benefits
Resource efficiency through reducing, reusing, and recycling
Community engagement and buyer satisfaction
Fair payment terms and company policies
Occupant well-being and indoor environment comfort
ESG provides a holistic strategy to enable a builder to gain understanding on the negative environmental and social impacts of their housing projects. For example, construction waste generated on site must be segregated and disposed of in a responsible manner.
Additionally, safety signages should be displayed in the local language of the construction workforce and mandating usage of PPE for them
It also enables the typically first-generation developers in the affordable housing segment to strengthen their corporate governance policies. For example, maintaining regularised wages and working hours for construction workers on site. Provision of a creche facility at the construction site to educate the construction worker’s children along with enforcing relevant policies to strengthen the prohibition of child & forced labour practices.
Infusing the concepts of ESG to create best practices for the construction sector will further help in achieving India’s climate target to reduce Emissions Intensity of its GDP by 45 % by 2030. This will further be a small step towards achieving India’s long-term goal of reaching net zero by 2070.2
So far India’s climate mitigation actions have been mostly financed from domestic resources. However, to address the challenge of climate change and achieve the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), there is a need for new and tailor-made funding required. Such funding opportunities are now coming in form of green bonds and climate finance from Development Finance Institutions to Indian banks and NonBanking Financial Companies (NBFCs).
The role of ESG is crucial to achieve the targets under India’s Panchamrit plan. To achieve this, real estate investors and lending companies should ensure that financing is aligned with positive and measurable climate, social and environmental co-benefits
