The purpose of this paper is to determine the level of sustainability reporting of environmental performances across the top textile companies in India.

It was found that, 20% of them are reporting as per global reporting initiative (GRI) guidelines and 50% as per the business responsibility format mandated by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India. It may be concluded that 70% of the industries are adhering to the business responsibility report. It may be hence concluded that the policy makers may need to 1.
