Reliance Industries'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 Reliance Industries.

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

Reliance Industries's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 34.51

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Reliance Industries's overall score of 34.51 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 71st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Reliance Industries's environmental score

Environmental score: 17.91/100

Reliance Industries's social score

Social score: 5.39/100

Reliance Industries's governance score

Governance score: 6.21/100

Reliance Industries's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Reliance Industries share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 9.54% of net profits

Recently Reliance Industries has paid out, on average, around 9.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.3% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Reliance Industries shareholders could enjoy a 0.3% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Reliance Industries's case, that would currently equate to about INR6.5 per share.

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

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Reliance Industries's shares ever split?

Reliance Industries's shares were split on a 1167:1156 basis on 12 May 2020. So if you had owned 1156 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1167 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Reliance Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Reliance Industries shares which in turn could have impacted Reliance Industries's share price.

Reliance Industries share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Reliance Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR1824.1311 up to INR2750. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

RELIANCE.BSE volatility(beta: 1.06)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (BSE average) beta is 1, while Reliance Industries's is 1.0573. This would suggest that Reliance Industries's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
