GAIL (India) Limited, the country’s premier Natural Gas company, has been selected for the second year in a row as an index constituent of the prestigious FTSE4Good Emerging Index.

 

GAIL’s selection in the FTSE4Good reflects its leadership in environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance in the Oil & Gas Sector. The FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong ESG practices worldwide. The Global Sustainability Index has been created by global index provider FTSE Russell, a wholly owned subsidiary of London Stock Exchange Group.

On being included in the global ESG Index, Dr. Ashutosh Karnatak, Director (Projects), GAIL (India) Limited said, “GAIL’s inclusion in the FTSE4GOOD Emerging Index for a second year in a row stands as a testimony of our efforts and long-term commitment towards Sustainability.”

 

On the inclusion of GAIL in the index, FTSE said “GAIL India has been independently assessed according to the FTSE4Good criteria, and has satisfied the requirements to become a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series.” The FTSE4Good indices are used by a wide variety of market participants to create and assess responsible investment funds and other products.
