Sustainability is an integral part of our business and is driven by the Company’s leadership, supported by an organisation-wide governance structure. The performance related to various sustainability aspects is reviewed at the Senior Leadership as well as the Board level.
At the Senior Leadership level, various committees review the sustainability and governance initiatives. These include the Apex Safety Committee, Apex Environment Committee, Apex HRD Committee, Apex CSR Committee, Apex R&D Committee, Quality and Production Meeting and Centre of Excellence for GHG Emission Reduction and Mitigation. These Committees are chaired either by the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer or Vice President, (Safety, Health & Sustainability).
The climate change-related risk assessment, in accordance with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, has been initiated and mitigation strategies will be subsequently incorporated. We actively engage with various industry bodies such as the World Steel Association (WSA), the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), the Global Reporting Initiative, the International Integrated Reporting Council and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, for guidance in implementing the best practices of sustainability. Various external assessments such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and those conducted by the CII drive improvements in our efforts of embedding sustainability.
