Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], January 28 (ANI/PRNewswire): Vakrangee Limited, this year, is a part of Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI).

The GEI is 380 companies strong, representing 44 countries around the world committed to a more equal and inclusive workplace with a combined market capitalisation of USD 14 Trillion. The Average overall GEI score is 66 per cent, even as Vakrangee has scored 70.86 per cent.

"We are extremely proud to see that Vakrangee is recognised and included in 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. This recognition reflects our commitment to gender equality and transparency," said Dinesh Nandwana, MD & Group CEO, Vakrangee Ltd.

"The companies included in 2021 GEI are expanding the ESG data universe to include gender-related data that investors are demanding today," said Peter T Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg.

Through disclosure of gender-related metrics using GEI framework, firms included in the 2021 GEI have committed to provide a comprehensive look at their investment in workplace gender equality and the communities in which they operate, raising the bar of what should be expected from other companies within the same industry.

Vakrangee was included in this year's index for scoring at or above global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect a high level of disclosure and overall performance across the framework's five pillar
