Green companies in India that are listed on stock exchange

Given the uncertainties around climate change and its impact, humanity is racing against time to find solutions to the climate crisis.

Businesses have an important role in preventing and solving climate change problems, and investors have an equally significant role to play in encouraging these companies by making them part of their portfolio.

If you are looking for sustainable investments in Indian companies that are solving climate change problems, we have listed a few green companies in India that are listed on stock exchanges—the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Most of these green companies are well-established.

Wrapping Up

India is on the cusp of many opportunities, especially in the areas of renewable energy and solar in particular. With 300 days of sunlight, a vast coastline, and many rivers & tributaries – India has all the necessary wherewithal to reduce its dependence on the coal-based energy resources to a major extent.

At Glasgow Summit 2021, India has set an ambitious target of becoming a net-zero economy by 2070 and achieving 500 GW of non-fossil fuel energy generation by 2030. To achieve this, the government has been formulating conducive policies, including efforts to incentivize private players to participate in realizing this vision.

India heavily depends on the Chinese companies which have been integral to India’s clean energy success. Take the case of solar energy; India does not make silicon wafers needed for solar cells and depends on imports for the majority of its module requirements. Taking cognizance of this gap, the Indian government in the Budget 2022 announced an additional allocation of Rs 19,500 cr for PLI for manufacturing high-efficiency solar modules

Many large-scale listed Indian companies have already taken the clue and have ventured into the renewable sector – Tata Power, Reliance, NTPC, Torrent Power to name a few – these companies cannot be termed as green companies in India as currently, their major source of revenue is from the fossil fuel business.

Take the case of Reliance; even though the company announced in 2021 an investment of more than $10 billion (Rs 75,000 crores) over the next three years toward the green energy sector, its petrochemical, oil, and gas-related operations still form the core of its business. However, if Reliance decides to separate its renewable business and list on the Indian bourses, it can very likely become one of the investors’ favorite green companies in India. 

One thing to always consider for sustainable investment is to look beyond renewables and solar. As you can see from our above list, apart from renewable energy, we have included a few companies in the waste management, recycling, and water treatment sectors as well. 

As India continues to work towards its climate goals, we will surely see more green companies that raise public money and are listed on India’s stock exchanges.
