Due Diligence & Sustainability Reporting

BW Businessworld Media Pvt. Ltd. (Delhi, India)

Sustain Labs develops the annual ranking of India’s Most Sustainable Companies for BW Businessworld, a leading business magazine in the country. This exercise involves a detailed analysis of India’s largest 200 companies and ranking them on a proprietary framework that covers 30 sustainability parameters.

Sustain Labs gathers data on the 200 companies, through public documents, questionnaires, employee interviews, and external stakeholder interviews. Based on this data, a detailed assessment and scoring of all companies is done by Sustain Labs.

In addition to the rankings, Sustain Labs writes short pieces that summarise the performance of the top 20 most sustainable companies, which makes for the entire content of BW Businessworld’s magazine issue in November every year on ‘India’s most sustainable companies’.
