At Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL), we have been publishing a statutory Annual Report, in line with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015; Companies Act, 2013; and Secretarial Standards. Since fiscal year 2015-16, we have also been publishing a Global Sustainability Report, which follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework. This year, we have transitioned to Integrated Reporting, in line with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) framework.

Through integrated reporting, we aim to share an overview of our financial and non-financial performance that has helped create short-term and long-term value for our stakeholders. This report provides insights on:

  • Material issues and our operating context
  • Governance structure
  • Our key strategies
  • Our approach to value creation within each of the capitals
  • Our performance against identified KPIs
  • Interconnectedness between our material issues, strategies, performance, and value creation
  • Financial and statutory reports
Reporting period

All information, financial and non-financial, is reported for the period from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019. For our performance on sustainability, we have also incorporated comparative figures for the previous year (fiscal year 2017-18) and baseline year (fiscal year 2010-11 except for statutory financials), for a holistic view.
