Tata ESG Investor Study
Over the past two decades a growing number of investors have begun to factor Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations into both their investment strategies and their engagement with investee companies, driven by concerns over financial, regulatory and reputational risk. Companies and investors now recognise, in poor ESG performance, both the immediate financial consequences and the collateral financial implications associated with business interruptions and negative publicity.

‘Responsible Investment’ has emerged, as a means of both minimising the ESG-related regulatory, financial and reputational risks of an investment portfolio and also as a means of identifying good ESG performers to maximise value creation.

Tata Sustainability Group (TSG) commissioned PwC to undertake a survey of investors to explore attitudes to ESG as they relate to the sectors in which the Tata group is active and to engage with five Tata group companies to discuss and review their practices against the investors’ expectations.
