Partners in Change and UNDP

Nandini Chami participated in a CSO consultation convened by Partners in Change and UNDP for the Ministry of Corporate Affairs on 16 Nov 2021, developing a business and human rights reporting template, technically 'Business and Sustainability Reporting template', for ICT Sector companies.

The discussion was able to establish the important point that in the platform age, the old logic of holding only the top 1000 publicly listed companies by market capitalization liable for BRSR reporting would not work and this rule had to change. Other criteria such as turnover, investment levels, and thresholds for determining the significance of data businesses came up in the conversation. and UNDP responded to this in their summing up and said they would immediately start a platform company-specific non-financial reporting requirement process (mandatory compliance).
