Bharti Airtel's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Bharti Airtel.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Bharti Airtel's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 23.86

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Bharti Airtel's overall score of 23.86 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 41st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Bharti Airtel is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Bharti Airtel's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.74/100

Bharti Airtel's environmental score of 3.74 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Bharti Airtel is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Bharti Airtel's social score

Social score: 12.51/100

Bharti Airtel's social score of 12.51 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Bharti Airtel is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Bharti Airtel's governance score

Governance score: 9.61/100

Bharti Airtel's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Bharti Airtel is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Bharti Airtel's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Bharti Airtel scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Bharti Airtel hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Bharti Airtel share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 29.59% of net profits

Recently Bharti Airtel has paid out, on average, around 29.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Bharti Airtel shareholders could enjoy a 0.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Bharti Airtel's case, that would currently equate to about INR3 per share.

While Bharti Airtel's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Bharti Airtel may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Bharti Airtel's shares ever split?

Bharti Airtel's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 July 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bharti Airtel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bharti Airtel shares which in turn could have impacted Bharti Airtel's share price.

Bharti Airtel share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bharti Airtel's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR625.9671 up to INR860.55. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NSE average) beta is 1, while Bharti Airtel's is 0.3066. This would suggest that Bharti Airtel's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
