Commenting on this, Nilam Patel, Managing Director, India Operations, S&P Global said, “At S&P Global India, we believe that diversity and inclusion are the cornerstones of innovation and growth. We invest in our people, provide essential sustainability intelligence to our customers and accelerate equity in our communities with the support of our External partners/NGOs.
