General Informations for SUSTAINABLE MINING SUMMIT 2017

Mining and mineral sector has been contributing to human development through ages. The pressing need is to implement sustainable mining across the sector so that the nation’s mineral potential is utilized in a manner that optimizes development with environmental and socio-economic welfare of the society along with benefits of mining throughout their 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 build trust and transparency in the sector.


Mining Industry in India is in transition phase owing to series of policy reforms initiated in the recent past which aims to bring transparency, attract investments, maximize revenue and long term sustainability.  Currently mining sector contributes 2.4% to the country’s GDP. Out of which non petroleum mineral sector contributes to 1.54% of GDP. Government vision is to increase the contribution of non fuel mineral sector by 1% to the country’s GDP which currently stands at 0.76%. to achieve such an ambitious target, it is sine qua non that all the stakeholders have to adopt holistic integrated approach incorporating long term sustainability.


In this background FIMI is organizing the Sustainable Mining Summit, 5th in series since 2013 at Cidade de Goa, Goa on 20 – 21 April, 2017. 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.
