EXL Publishes Third Annual Sustainability Report
EXL, a leading global data analytics and digital operations and solutions company, announced that it published its third annual Sustainability Report, which highlights its progress across key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance metrics in an updated report format.
EXL’s Vice Chairman and CEO, Rohit Kapoor, said, “Our sustainability strategy is integrated across the company. We believe our ESG programme is critical to our long-term success, durability, and resiliency. We have started to make EXL's business more sustainable with an eye toward 2023 and beyond. We also want to ensure that the priorities of sustainability and business are aligned by function.
"Sustainability is a fundamental part of what drives our strong bond with our clients, employees, and communities. In recognition of our progress on our ESG initiatives, we were named one of Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies in 2022 and, for the second straight year, included in Newsweek America’s Most Responsible Companies list for 2023.”
