Making Growth Inclusive - Analysing Inclusive Policies, Disclosures and Mechanisms of Top 100 Companies 2018

The India Responsible Business Index (IRBI) has been gaining a lot of currency in this collective quest to explore ways of correcting India’s growth story. The Index was originally conceived through a collaborative partnership between Corporate Responsibility Watch (CRW), Oxfam India, Change Alliance, Praxis Institute for Participatory Practices (Praxis) and Partners in Change (PiC). After 3 years of IRBI analysis, we see very little perceptible change. Banks are still not reporting on supply chain and community as a stakeholder is still not in the DNA of companies. It is also disappointing to note that higher disclosure are only in areas that are legally mandated, defeating the spirit of voluntary disclosure. Unfortunately, there is seemingly little effort from Businesses, the Ministry, SEBI or the government to make a difference. Click here for 2018 report

Corporate Responsibility in India 2017

This report, which is the second edition of the CSR in India series, aims to maintain the continuity in compelling companies to go beyond the mandated two per cent CSR spend and examine how the profits are made, rather than how they are being spent. Building on our analyses of the BRRs,
authors have examined the ground realities of CSR practices through the lens of labour reform, workers' rights and current trends within the policy environment. The report uses information available in the public domain, largely put across by companies themselves through their business responsibility reports, annual reports and annual CSR reports.

Making Growth Inclusive - Analysing Inclusive Policies, Disclosures and Mechanisms of Top 100 Companies 2017

This year’s report provides companies a new set of data and analyses to help evolve policies that are aligned to the National Voluntary Guidelines and thereby create an enabling ecosystem in which there is a level playing field in community-corporate negotiations. While there are examples of good practices on almost all elements in some company or the other, it is important for them to go beyond the ‘regular’ - for instance, as few as six companies conduct assessments on the situation of workers’ rights and labour issues.
