The latest in the IFC Sustainable Investment Country Report series focuses on the Indian market. In this report, TERI-Europe estimates that the total stock of investment in Indian equities where the investment strategy includes a strong focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations is small and almost entirely composed of investment by foreign institutional investors. They also find that the enabling environment for sustainable investment in Indian listed equities is currently weak. However, there are also some signs of positive change, including improvements in sustainability reporting and growing interest in ESG issues among foreign institutional investors.
