Segment ranking summary

Active in the food and beverage processor, agricultural input and agricultural products and commodities segment, Murugappa Group ranks respectively 185th, 46th, and 116th compared to its peers, thus sitting at the bottom of each ranking. The company lags behind its peers in environment, social inclusion and governance and strategy in all three segments but shows an average perfomance in nutrition compared to its peers in the agricultural input segment. Furthermore, although farmers’ resiliance and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are topics maturely addressed by Murugappa Group’s peers in the three segments, the company performs poorly on them due a lack of disclosure on quantitative evidence and commitments.
