ITC'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 ITC.

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

ITC's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 28.15

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ITC's overall score of 28.15 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 47th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

ITC's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.33/100

ITC's environmental score of 9.33 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ITC is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ITC's social score

Social score: 14.03/100

ITC's social score of 14.03 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ITC is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ITC's governance score

Governance score: 10.8/100

ITC's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ITC is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ITC's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

ITC share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 84.89% of net profits

Recently ITC has paid out, on average, around 84.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ITC shareholders could enjoy a 3.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ITC's case, that would currently equate to about INR12.25 per share.

ITC's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ITC's shares ever split?

ITC's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 July 2016. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ITC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ITC shares which in turn could have impacted ITC's share price.

ITC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ITC's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR234.2761 up to INR394. 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 ITC's is 0.2895. This would suggest that ITC's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
