Indian companies have ranked third in Asia’s overall environmental sustainability out of eight markets studied, with an average score of 63.12, which is slightly exceeded the regional average of 62.34 points, according to a survey.
Companies in Hong Kong recorded the best overall performance in Asia with an average score of 70.06, followed by South Korea (64.57) and India (63.12), according to ‘Financing a Sustainable Future in Asia’ report by global financial markets data and infrastructure provider Refinitiv. “With Asia set to lead global economic growth in the coming decade, the region’s companies and business leaders will play a prominent role in the sustainable development agenda. As many of the world’s most pressing environmental and social concerns, such as climate change and social inequality, reach critical junctures, it is important that companies take their responsibilities seriously,” Refinitiv Global Head of ESG Elena Philipova said.
