We are pleased to announce our collaboration with BDO India to empower Indian businesses in their journey towards BRSR Core compliance.
SEBI’s BRSR Core requirements are reshaping the Indian corporate landscape and as these requirements gain momentum; this collaboration will enable India’s biggest organisations to comply with SEBI’s new BRSR Core requirements ahead of the compliance requirement by FY 2024-25 for select companies.
BDO India’s regulatory expertise combined with Achilles’ ESG supply chain prowess will ensure businesses navigate this transformation seamlessly.
What to Expect: A comprehensive BRSR Core compliance solution tailored for India’s leading companies, ensuring they meet the upcoming deadlines. With BDO India’s regulatory insights and Achilles’ extensive ESG data collection and validation, businesses can confidently address the BRSR Core’s stringent requirements.
Words from the Leaders: Dipankar Ghosh, BDO’s practice leader for Sustainability and ESG, said “India’s leading listed companies need to move quickly to meet the requirements stipulated by SEBI. This collaboration will help us to offer our clients a comprehensive sustainable supply chain solution including data capture, verification, scoring and reporting tools.”
Smitha Shetty, Achilles Regional Director, APAC, said “The structure and sheer scale of today’s supply chains mean that ESG issues and their causes can be extremely hard to identify, understand and eradicate requiring intensive and sustained effort to monitor and report at required frequencies and the data required goes far beyond regular operational boundaries. Often, we see companies relying on data sources of questionable provenance and accuracy which undermine their reporting and expose them to necessary regulatory risk. We are delighted to be partnering with BDO India to provide a truly comprehensive BRSR Core compliance solution that combines both BDO India’s legislative and strategy expertise and our exceptional ESG supply chain services experience gained over 12 years of auditing suppliers here in India in +20 Indian local languages.”
