Overview

BRSR Advisory and Consultancy

Investors, corporations, private equity firms, and stock exchanges are increasingly seeking robust ESG management as part of their due diligence around investments, mergers, and acquisitions.

The move towards BRSR is in line with the emerging trends globally on reporting on ESG matters.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) introduced new requirements for sustainability reporting by listed entities. The new reporting called the Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report (BRSR) will replace the existing Business Responsibility Report (BRR).

ESG Gap Assessment Study, Preparation of ESG and BRSR Report

We conducted a study for a major company that manufactures and sells lubricants for cars and industries for many years.

Our project began by examining their business methods, current practices, and efforts related to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues. Afterward, we carefully identified the areas where they could improve. The results of our study include a list of these gaps, how important they are, and specific recommendations on how to fill them.

This was followed by preparation of a BRSR Report as per the SEBI mandated process.

Relevant Standards and Protocols used:

ESG related standards and guidelines, BRSR, National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct (NGRBC), ISO 26000, Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, SDG Guidelines, Good Industry Practices

Some more answers to your questions – FAQ

Applicability of Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting (BRSR)

Reporting under the new requirements of Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting has been made mandatory for the top 1,000 listed companies by market capitalization from FY 2022-23 onwards.
Other companies can voluntarily submit BRSR effective 2021-22.

For the purpose of determining applicability of the requirement, market capitalization would be calculated as on 31 March of every financial year.

Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting and unlisted companies

As per the MCA committee recommendation, the reporting requirement may be extended by MCA to unlisted companies based on specified thresholds of turnover or paid-up capital.
Further, the committee recommends that on a voluntary basis, smaller unlisted companies below this threshold limit may adopt a lite version of the format.

Two formats for disclosures are available; a comprehensive format for listed companies; and a lite version for unlisted companies, in case it is extended to them.

Steps for Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting

Companies who are mandated to comply with SEBI BRSR reporting requirements need to invest in necessary mechanisms which could help in the following aspects:

  • Selection of the relevant and applicable ESG requirements material to the organization
  • Enable capturing the required data for reporting on the selected ESG issues
  • Selection of a suitable framework and related metrics that can be adopted by companies to facilitate transparent and accurate reporting
  • Level of assurance to be provided on such reporting
ESG Reporting and Global Movements

Governments of several countries have introduced disclosures on sustainability reporting. Countries like Denmark, South Africa, China, Malaysia and Philippines require certain companies to make disclosures in relation to their non-financial performance across ESG aspects.

EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive is one of the most significant EU-wide legislative initiatives to promote sustainability reporting. Climate change related reporting is prevalent in Australia, Mexico, USA, and in France. The Modern Slavery Act, first enacted by the UK in 2015 and more recently by Australia, asks each company to report on modern slavery not just in its operations but also in its global supply chains, thereby including many SMEs in emerging markets.

International investors with global investment portfolios are increasingly calling for high quality, transparent, reliable and comparable reporting by companies on climate and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

On 3 November 2021, the IFRS Foundation Trustees announced the creation of a new standard-setting board—the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).

The ISSB will benefit from the consolidation of global bodies (Climate Disclosure Standards Board – CDSB, International Integrated Reporting Council – IIRC and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board – SASB) – as well as the support of International Organization of Securities Commission – IOSCO, Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures – TCFD and World Economic Forum – WEF). Together they share the aim of enterprise value-focused sustainability disclosures.

The World Economic Forum has also released a set of universal ESG metrics and disclosures that companies can report on. These metrics and disclosures are aligned with the UN SDGs: Principles of governance, planet, people and prosperity.

BRSR and Other Standards

Companies preparing and disclosing sustainability reports based on internationally accepted reporting frameworks such as GRI, SASB, TCFD, are allowed to cross refer the disclosures made under such framework to the disclosures sought under BRSR.

Companies may leverage existing disclosures to avoid repetitions.

Mandatory reporting under BRSR shall not restrict companies from making extensive disclosures in their annual reports voluntarily through integrated reporting or other sustainability report frameworks.
