Event Details



Minerals are vital inputs in our daily life as well as necessary for India’s growth. Rapid growth in population and need to improve living standards has led to huge demand for mineral resources. On the other hand, there are huge expectations that mining be done sustainably while addressing the complexities of socio-economic development, benefit-sharing with stakeholders, mitigating climate change and impacts on the environment.


It is crucial to adopt global best practices and latest technology while operating the mines to achieve higher productivity, operational excellence and high health and safety standards. Further, it is also necessary to highlight the role of mining sector in sustainable development of the country and build trust and transparency in the sector.


Indian mining sector has now entered a critical transition phase after series of greenfield and brownfield mine auctions, judicial pronouncements and policy reforms. The present mining ecosystem in India is quite volatile and thus it is essential for all stakeholders, including policymakers and industry to adopt global best practices and collaborate for long-term sustainability in the mining sector. Much work needs to be done to facilitate mining business, create new job opportunities, holistic development of communities and ensure overall sustainability of mining operations.


In this background, FIMI is organizing the Sustainable Mining Summit 2020 at Hotel Mayfair Lagoon, Bhubaneswar on 23-24 April, 2020. The Summit aims to deliberate on various mining issues concerning sustainability, which will result in a road-map for sustainable mining in India. Various stakeholders, including Government agencies, regulators, industry stalwarts, practicing managers, NGOs, academicians and strategists are expected to come together on this platform to deliberate on these very important issues at a turning point in the Indian Mining History.
