Sustainability development is on the top of our minds at every single moment. It’s a journey we have embarked upon not because a group of our size must, but because we truly want to. While our operations serve as the means to reach the destination, our mission guides us on the way.
This report is a testimony to our achievements during the reporting period. While engaging with our dynamic base of stakeholders, we follow the principle of responsible investment which is a part of our financial decision making process. Our strategy for sustainability is based on the pillars that are the crux of Vedanta’s sustainable development:
Sterlite's first consolidated Sustainable Development Report 2010-11 covers the environmental, social and economic performance based on the guidelines of GRI-G3.1 Reporting Framework and aligned with the United Nations Global Compact principles. Henceforth, we will be publishing our Sustainability Report comprising of all our holding companies and subsidiaries, annually.
The group has implemented ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 17025 to ensure management systems are working to their optimum levels. We believe in the precautionary approach and we follow it as a principle towards all our activities and initiatives. Our safety and environmental systems are a testimony to our approach towards a safe, clean and productive business.
