We are all buoyed by the news that the Covid-19 vaccine may finally be just around the corner. Yes, what welcome news this is! Finally, a semblance of normalcy could return to our lives. We have, during the year, looked at how various sectors have fared during the pandemic, analysed the health of the economy and presented upcoming trends in various segments of business. In this issue we decided do something slightly different and flashed the spotlight on an important and yet slightly overlooked aspect of business – sustainability.

In association with Sustain Labs Paris (SLP), BW Businessworld brings to you a detailed study on the most sustainable companies in India. This joint endeavour of Sustain Labs Paris and BW Businessworld’s editorial team acknowledges the frontrunners in sustainability in the corporate world and attempts to set a benchmark that growing companies may aim for as they contribute to the Indian economy.

The study of the most sustainable Indian companies identified the 200 largest companies in the country by revenue and ranked them across various parameters after an in-depth analysis and on the basis of interviews. Indian corporate houses were ranked on parameters like resource efficiency, social entrepreneurship, financial management, employee well-being, clean revenue and inclusive supply chains. Diving deeper into these criteria, 31 aspects along with their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were identified, which helped examine, assess and rank all the companies. In addition, in-house experts at Sustain Labs Paris provided detailed expert reviews of these companies.

We present not just the rankings, but also profiles of the top 20 companies and their best practices to acknowledge corporate efforts to adapt to sustainable practices toward a better world. Corporate involvement with the economy is often restricted to corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments, a trend that has been examined critically in this special issue on sustainability.

Of course, as usual, we also bring to you all the regular columns, features and interviews with newsmakers that you look forward to. In a conversation with me recently, for instance, i2Cure President Anil Kejriwal, talks of a wonder iodine-based Covid shield that his company is trying to produce in India. I do hope you enjoy reading this issue just as much as we did compiling it.

Happy Reading!
