National Summit on Mining Exploration and Sustainability – 2018

In the wake of ever-changing dynamics defining the growth of Indian mining industry,  the future of the industry largely depends on two factors, the financial viability and  the environmental sustainability. To address the issue of sustainability, the respective  governments need to collaborate with industry stakeholders and develop  environmental & social assessments to anticipate sector-wide impacts, incorporating  environmental and social priorities into mining industry’s policies and regulatory  framework.

Against this backdrop, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI)  along with International Institute of Corporate Social Responsibility (IICSR) is  organizing a National Summit on Mineral Exploration and Sustainability for boosting  investments in the mineral exploration on August 17, 2018 (Friday) at Federation  House, Tansen Marg, New Delhi.

The key objective of the program is to understand and address the long-term  sustainability challenges in the industry and highlight the reasons of skewed  investments in mineral exploration industry. Government agencies like Geological  Survey of India along with Central and State Policy Makers, Entrepreneurs and  International & National Investors would also be part of the event.
