ESG Corporate Talk by Mr. Murali, Rane Group

In the recent enlightening session held at our college, Mr. Murali, a distinguished representative from the Rane Group, shared invaluable insights into the realm of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations in the corporate world. With his extensive experience as a Safety and Health Practitioner and Manager at Rane Group, Mr. Murali shed light on how these three crucial aspects significantly impact their operations, the steps taken to ensure ESG compliance, and the broader importance of ESG in today's industries. During the insightful session, Mr. Murali highlighted Rane Group's proactive measures to align with ESG goals. The company has introduced various eco-friendly initiatives to minimize its ecological footprint and on the social front, it is dedicated to enhancing the well-being of its employees, local communities, and stakeholders. Through these initiatives, Rane Group has not only minimized workplace incidents but has also fostered a sense of responsibility towards one another's well-being. Mr. Murali passionately emphasized the significance of ESG in today's dynamic business landscape.
He also gave an interesting example where one of their employees who was trained to give CPR first aid saved a life of an elderly person in Chennai while traveling on a local train and recalled how their training came into use in a real-life situation and saved a life. The talk shed light on the symbiotic relationship between ESG principles and corporate success.
The talk has been organized as a part of the ESG modular specialization for the PGDM 2022-24 batch, held on August 18, 2023.
