FIMI Organises Sustainable Mining Summit


The Sustainable Mining Summit was held at the Mayfair Lagoon hotel in 2024 by the Federation of Indian Mineral Industries (FIMI). The purpose of the summit was to discuss the opportunities and problems facing the mining sector in order to achieve sustainable growth. Key players in the mining industry, including government agencies, regulators, industry veterans, practicing managers, academics, and strategists, convened for a two-day event. Discussions on a range of topics pertaining to sustainable mining methods, such as social responsibility, environmental preservation, and economic viability, were made possible by the summit.

“Growth of the mining sector is crucial for India not just to sustain high economic growth but also to generate the much-needed employment and help the population improve their standard of living,” stated Shantesh Gureddi, President, FIMI, welcoming the participants to the session. For a long time, FIMI has acknowledged the necessity of sustainable mining in India and has been putting together this summit to unite different stakeholders on one stage so they may share experiences and learn from one another.

A number of interesting and educational workshops and panel discussions were held throughout the summit on subjects such mining technology breakthroughs, the importance of mining to India’s economy, environmental sustainability, and the effects of mining on nearby communities. The attendees talked about creative solutions to the industry’s problems as well as their experiences and best practices in sustainable mining.

“To achieve the ambitious target of net-zero by 2070, the Indian Mining Industry needs to focus on innovation and data-driven technologies and adopt sustainable mining practices,” stated Pankaj Satija, Executive-in-Charge, Ferro Alloys and Minerals Division, Tata Steel, who was present at the event. I appreciate FIMI giving the mining industry’s stakeholders a forum to talk about and exchange best practices and experiences.
