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
Govt releases Guidelines for scheme for Assistance to Medical Devices Clusters
The Department of Pharmaceuticals (DoP) has come out with the guidelines for the scheme for Assistance to Medical Device Clusters for Common Facilities (AMD-CF) with proposed financial outlay of Rs. 300 crore to offer financial assistance to strengthen the existing and new medical device clusters through creation of common infrastructure facilities
The Scheme, with two sub-schemes, is expected to help in boosting the domestic manufacturing capacity and improving the quality of clusters for sustainable growth of the medical devices sector.
The scheme further intends to support central or state governments, institutions, or organisations to establish or strengthen the testing laboratories for medical devices to meet the needs arising due to the roll out of the licensing regime of the Medical Devices Rules (MDR), 2017.
The Scheme has two components or sub schemes – Assistance for Common Facilities (CF) and Assistance for Testing Facilities (TF) – and would be running for three years from 2023-24 to 2025-26. The tenure of the scheme is from the financial year 2023-24 to the financial year 2026-27.
Both the sub-schemes are designed to set up 12 common facilities and 12 testing laboratories, under which the common facilities will be supported with a financial assistance of Rs. 240 crore (Rs. 48 crore in the first year, Rs. 128 crore in the second and Rs 64 crore in the third year) for the common facilities and Rs. 60 crore (Rs. 18 crore for the first, Rs. 30 crore for the second and Rs. 12 crore for the third year) for the testing facilities.
Assistance for Common Facilities is planned to strengthen the medical devices clusters’ capacity for their sustained growth by creating common infrastructure facilities.
Medical devices manufacturing units in a cluster who have come together to form a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to execute the project of developing common facilities and the clusters promoted by the State governments, are expected to benefit from the sub-scheme.
There shall be a minimum of five medical device manufacturing units as members of SPV. Clusters promoted by state governments may not need to form an SPV.
The SPV should have representatives from cluster members, financial institutions, state and central government and R&D organisations and the individual manufacturing unit cannot hold more than 40 per cent in the SPV. The Medical Devices enterprises shall hold at least 51 per cent equity of the SPV.
For Common Infrastructure Facilities for medical device clusters, the limit of support will be 70 per cent of the approved project cost or Rs. 20 crore, whichever is less, as per the approval of the Scheme Steering Committee (SSC).
The sub scheme is expected to have benefits including improvement in quality of medical devices, regulatory compliance specified for medical devices, increased availability of trained personnel for the clusters, increased competitiveness of units in the cluster and reduction in the manufacturing cost of the devices.
The sub scheme on assistance for Testing Facilities is aimed at strengthening availability of more Medical Device Testing Laboratories in order to boost manufacturing of quality medical devices, and national or state level government of private institutions interested to establish or strengthen testing facilities for medical devices to test Class A, B, C and D medical devices including in vitro diagnostic medical devices under MDR, 2017 can apply for the assistance.
The guideline proposes a Technical Committee constituted by the DoP to assist the SSC, which will have one representative each from the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO), industry and academia, and ICMR, and two representative experts having knowledge and experience in the process development, R&D, product design, testing of medical devices or medical devices manufacturing from relevant institutes such as NIPER, IISc, IITs, Sree Chitra Thirunal Institute of Medical Sciences and Technology, and CSIR, among others.
The DoP will provide overall policy, coordination and management support for the implementation of the Scheme, while the proposals under the scheme will be considered for approval by the SSC, which will be headed by the Secretary of DoP as the Chairperson, and will have members including the Drugs Controller General of India, Financial Advisor of DoP, Joint Secretary (Schemes and Medical Devices), DoP, representatives of the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME), the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), and the director or the deputy secretary (Schemes) of the DoP.
