Event Details


Mining has been contributing to human development through ages. While rapid growth in world population and improved living standards has led to huge demand for mineral resources, the pressing challenges of mitigating climate change necessitates resource efficiency and sustainable mining. The Indian mining industry has a crucial role to play in mainstreaming sustainability across the value chain so as to responsibly cater to the rapidly rising domestic demand. This will ensure that the nation’s mineral wealth is utilized in a manner that optimizes development with environmental and socio-economic welfare of the society alongwith benefits of mining throughout the life-cycle. It is essential 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.


Mining Industry in India is going through a transition phase owing to series of judicial pronouncements and policy reforms. Though recent reforms have been aimed to bring in transparency, socio-economic growth in mining districts and maximize revenues, much of the work needs to be done to facilitate mining business, create new job opportunities and ensure sustainability of mining operations.


As per the current mining statute, many operative non-captive mines are about to expire in March, 2020 and much of the established raw material supply chain is about to undergo a major shift. Faced with such a volatile and intense situation, it is essential that all stakeholders, including policymakers and industry, collaborate to adopt a holistic approach for incorporating long-term sustainability in the sector.


In this background, FIMI is organizing the Sustainable Mining Summit 2019 at Hotel Mayfair Lagoon, Bhubaneswar on 11 – 12 April, 2019. 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.
