HDFC Bank'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 HDFC Bank.

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

HDFC Bank's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 32.48

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and HDFC Bank's overall score of 32.48 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 55th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like HDFC Bank 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.).

HDFC Bank's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.08/100

HDFC Bank's environmental score of 7.08 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that HDFC Bank is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

HDFC Bank's social score

Social score: 18.65/100

HDFC Bank's social score of 18.65 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that HDFC Bank is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

HDFC Bank's governance score

Governance score: 20.24/100

HDFC Bank's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that HDFC Bank is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

HDFC Bank's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. HDFC Bank scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that HDFC Bank has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

HDFC Bank share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 20.46% of net profits

Recently HDFC Bank has paid out, on average, around 20.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HDFC Bank shareholders could enjoy a 0.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HDFC Bank's case, that would currently equate to about INR0 per share.

While HDFC Bank's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that HDFC Bank is investing more in its future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HDFC Bank's shares ever split?

HDFC Bank's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 September 2019. 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 HDFC Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HDFC Bank shares which in turn could have impacted HDFC Bank's share price.

HDFC Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HDFC Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR1271.6 up to INR1702.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HDFCBANK.NSE volatility(beta: 0.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NSE average) beta is 1, while HDFC Bank's is 0.7136. This would suggest that HDFC Bank's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
