Event Details


Minerals are the basic building blocks for a sustainable world and mining industry plays a pivotal role in meeting the ever increasing demand for minerals and metals, necessary to improve quality of life. Rapid growth in population, need to improve living standards and focus on renewable energy transition 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.   


During 27th Conference of Parties (COP27), the country has submitted its Long-Term Low Emissions Development Strategy indicating low carbon transition pathways in key economic sectors to achieve India’s aim of Net Zero Emissions targets.  In the perspective of ‘Make in India’ initiative, the focus is on improving energy efficiency, National Hydrogen Mission, electrification, enhancing material efficiency and recycling leading to expansion of circular economy in the sector of steel, cement, aluminium and others. The focus will be on the rational utilization of national resources with regard to energy security. Therefore, it is necessary to highlight the role of mining sector in achieving net zero emission target for sustainable development of the country and build trust and transparency in the sector. 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.


It is also the need of the hour to design mining operations with latest technology innovation towards the goal of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’. Digitalization in mining offers the promise of profitable business, with improved decision-making and increased employee empowerment. More importantly, digitalization and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology can improve health, safety and environmental impact thus saving lives, reducing injuries, lowering emissions and waste, and increasing transparency and sustainability. The Indian mining industry should take the lead in innovation in data-driven emerging technologies and incorporate digitization, automation and Internet of Things (IoT) systems for enhancing operational efficiencies.


The Indian mining sector has now entered a critical transition phase after Greenfield and Brownfield mine auctions. The present mining ecosystem in India is quite dynamic 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 2023 at Hotel Mayfair Lagoon, Bhubaneswar on 13-14 April, 2023. The summit aims to deliberate on various mining issues concerning sustainability, which will result in formulation of 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.
