Responsible Investment through BSE

    The S&P BSE CARBONEX aims to provide the investors with an index that is indicative of companies' commitment to mitigating the effects of climate change and moving forward to tackle the environmental challenges of the coming years.

    It uses comprehensive data acquired from independent providers of sustainibility data and companies' public disclosures and tracks the underlying benchmark index 'S&P BSE 100 Index' closely.

    AIPL (Asia Index Private Limited, JV of BSE and SPDJI) is the index calculating partner with BSE for S&P BSE CARBONEX. RobecoSAM shall be the knowledge partner and CDP India would continue to be data provider for the Index.

This is a leader's index that comprises of twenty five companies that are good in terms of the Green House Gases (GHG) emissions including offsetting, Market Capitalization and the Liquidity in the market.
  • BSE - SEBI Clause 55 Business Responsibility Reporting (BRR)
    SEBI had, in August 2012, issued a circular on Business Responsibility Reporting, which follows from the National Voluntary Guidelines (NVG) on Social, Environmental and Economical Responsibilities of Business being brought out by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in July 2011, both of which speak of the pressing responsibilities that businesses have to shoulder today in order to make way for a sustainable future and a safer environment for our businesses, our society, and our planet.

    SEBI mandated inclusion of Business Responsibility Reports ("BR reports") as part of the Annual Reports for listed entities. Therefore, in line with the objective to enhance the quality of disclosures made by listed entities, certain listing conditions are specified by way of inserting Clause 55 in the equity Listing Agreement.

    BSE is working closely with SEBI to monitor the BRR compliance details filed by companies.
