ONGC'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 ONGC.

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

ONGC's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 53.19

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ONGC's overall score of 53.19 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 102nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

ONGC's environmental score

Environmental score: 27.02/100

ONGC's environmental score of 27.02 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ONGC is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ONGC's social score

Social score: 18.67/100

ONGC's social score of 18.67 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ONGC is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ONGC's governance score

Governance score: 12.99/100

ONGC's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ONGC is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ONGC's controversy score

Controversy score: 5/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. ONGC scored a 5 out of 5 for controversy – the lowest score possible, reflecting that ONGC's public profile has been damaged by multiple incidents.

ONGC share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 35.48% of net profits

Recently ONGC has paid out, on average, around 35.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ONGC shareholders could enjoy a 7.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ONGC's case, that would currently equate to about INR14 per share.

While ONGC's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ONGC 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 24 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ONGC's shares ever split?

ONGC's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 December 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 ONGC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ONGC shares which in turn could have impacted ONGC's share price.

ONGC share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ONGC's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR108.6032 up to INR162.9314. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ONGC.NSE volatility(beta: 0.74)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 ONGC's is 0.7444. This would suggest that ONGC's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
