Event Details


Minerals are the basic building blocks for a sustainable world. While mining and minerals have helped civilizations to sustain and grow, the present population of 7.6 billion offers both challenges and opportunities to meet the global mineral demand through sustainable mining. The Indian mining industry has a crucial role to play in mainstreaming sustainability across its value chain so as to responsibly cater to the rapidly rising domestic demand. This will ensure that the nation’s mineral wealth is optimally utilized for development alongwith environmental measures and socio-economic welfare of the society and host communities. Thus, there is a need 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 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 upliftment in mining regions and maximize revenue, much of the work needs to be done to facilitate mining business and ensure sustainability of mining operations.  Currently mining sector (excluding petroleum and natural gas) contributes 1.367% to the country’s GDP. The Government plans to increase this contribution by 1% in the next few years. To achieve such an ambitious target, it is essential that all the stakeholders have to adopt holistic integrated approach incorporating long term sustainability.


In this background FIMI is organizing the Sustainable Mining Summit to deliberate on the pressing issues concerning mining 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.
