Overview

This document on the Reporting Criteria provides the computation methodology, assumptions and exclusions made to measure the progress on ESG targets and other key metrics which are part of our Integrated Annual Report for FY 2024 and the ESG data supplementary book. The report covers the period

1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024, unless otherwise stated.

01

ESG Data Reporting Criteria

We have brought out the reporting criteria for the key sustainability performance indicators based on the below criteria:

  1. Indicators where reporting standards and frameworks mentions that methodology needs to be called out,
  2. Indicators which are key for our ESG goal performance,
  3. Indicators which disclose the performance of our significant material issues.

Standards and frameworks for disclosures

Our Integrated Annual Report 2024 is prepared in alignment to the International Integrated Reporting () framework by the International Integrated Reporting Council (now part of IFRS foundation) for its structure.

Sustainability performance aligns with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Universal Standards 2021 and the non-financial disclosures are mapped according to Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) Circulars which outlinesthe format for the Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report(BRSR Core & Comprehensive), Conforms to the nine principles of the National Guidelines on Responsible Business Conduct, 2019 (NGRBC) of the Ministry ofCorporate Affairs, Government of India. Weare consistent with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and demonstrating our positive contributions through various initiatives which serves as a reference for the UN Global Compact Communication on Progress questionnaire.

GHG emissions inventory and related disclosures are prepared using GHG protocol and ISO 14064 standards.

Data Sources and Systems

Our objective is to design and

implement non-financial data reporting

processes, procedures, data, and

systems to report ESG data to the

same level of reliability and relevance

as for our financial data. OurESG data reporting processes, procedures and systems are evolving, and we

continue to work to align data recording

and reporting methods across our

reporting units and globalfunctions.

Data sources and systems for key ESG

performance indicator are outlined in

the report below. We will continue to

work on and invest in enhancing our ESG data processes, procedures and systems, as well as governance over ESG data, to continuously improve the qualityofour data and to meet the evolving regulatory requirements.

ESG Data Reporting Criteria

Metric. No

P1

ESG Metrices

Unit of Measurement

Number of Number Patients reached

through our products

Computation Methodology and Assumptions

We have calculated number of patients reached based on the below methodology:

  • Number of Drug Treated Patient Equivalents (DTPE) have been computed on the volume of Formulation (Drugs) and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) products sold by us during the year, after considering the average daily dose, duration of therapy and compliance factor.
  • DTPE as computed above have been adjusted considering the dispensing practice of the respective market.
  • The above have been converted to Unique Patients reached assuming the below overlap percentages for patients receiving multiple products of Dr. Reddy's during the year:
    1. Patients consuming 3 of our products during the year: 10%
    2. Patients consuming 2 of our products during the year: 20%
    3. Patients consuming 1 of our products during the year: 70%

around 30 LMIC countries with a criterion of <

USD 23,000 per capita GDP in PPP as defined in

the latest available World Bank database at the

time of reporting.

first to market (FTM)

where our product is the first one to be launched

either solely by us or is a shared FTM along

with other companies. We compute all the FTM

launches at a product country combination level

and divide it by total number of launches done in

all countries during the year.

Reporting Boundary and Exclusions

  • Patient computation is an estimate made on thebasisof assumptions tothe best of our knowledge at the time of computation.
  • The metric P1 and P2 doesn't include patients reached through our services business.

Computation Methodology for Environment Related Metrics

Metric. No

E1

ESG Metrices

Unit of Measurement

Energy consumption Giga Joules within the organization

ESG Data Reporting Criteria

Computation Methodology and Assumptions

Our overall energy use includes renewable and non-renewable energy sources.

Energy use is accounted based on

E2

E3

a. Electrical energy in meter readings and invoices from the DISCOM's

b. Fuel is monitored based on SAP records (e.g., for diesel, Furnace oil, Biomass-Briquette/Rice husk, Coal, etc.)

c. To compute the energy in terms of "Giga Joules", we

multiply gross calorific value of respective fuel with

its quantity. Similarly for electrical energy, we use conversion factor from "kWh" to "Giga Joules"

Data from individual locations reported through our

internal data monitoring portal.

Renewable

Percentage

Percentage of renewable electricity used is computed as:

electricity use

Total renewable electricity consumed from below

mentioned sources divided by the total electricity

consumption by us.

Our renewable electricity sources are:

  1. Own generation: Generation bill/ report provided by the agency
  2. Third party power purchase agreements: DISCOM monthly bills and agreements with generators.
  3. Green power through open access: DISCOM bills

d. Purchase of renewable energy attributes (REC's and IREC's): Purchase certificates

  1. Joint Ventures: DISCOM bills

f.

Co-generation through biomass: Internal generation

records and Meter records

Water management:

Kilo Liter (KL)

Water withdrawal is the sum of water intake for our

1. Water Withdrawal

operations from fresh water sources which include

municipal, groundwater, surface water, third party and

2. Water recycle/

rainwater sources.

reuse

Water withdrawal, discharges and consumption are

3. Water discharge

measured using water meter data or invoices in the case

of municipal and tankers and are tracked through the

internal data monitoring tool.

At majority of sites Wastewater discharge is measured

through meters located at the discharge points and

forfew sites we calculate through an assumption of

percentage of wastewater discharged from overall intake of fresh water.

E4

Water positivity

Percentage

Computation Methodology and Assumptions

We have computed water positivity basis of below estimation:

A - Fresh water withdrawal

B - Water conserved through rainwater harvesting and other initiatives

Waterpositivity= B/A

We also work towards reduction in fresh water use through usage of grey water, water efficient processes, etc. in contributing to water positivity. We ensure that

water conserved through rainwater harvesting and other initiatives is multiple times that of fresh water with-drawal in maintaining water positivity.

Carbon emissions from all sources (fossil, biomass,

renewable) related to fuel and electricity

b.
