Sustainable development has always been a vital spoke of ESL's Wheel of Goals. Aligned to Vedanta's seven pillars, we continuously strive to enhance our contribution to the global sustainability movement by incorporating pragmatic and environmentally friendly alternatives along with ensuring social and environmental compliance. With a robust sustainable development framework, ESL aims to build a sustainable future for all the stakeholders and emerge as a leader in shaping India's self-reliance journey.
ESL's approach towards sustainability is strategized effectively based on the PDCA cycle intertwined in the fabric of need-based assessment. Being a responsible IMS-certified organization, ESL executes every project with strict sustainability-centric considerations in line with the updated rules and regulations. Following Vedanta's structure, an organized Sustainability Assurance Programme known as VSAP has been developed to conduct regular analytic assessments.
VSF (VEDANTA SUSTAINABILITY FRAMEWORK)
As a diversified natural resources company, Vedanta is committed to proactively delivering sustainable and responsible growth, creating value for our shareholders and stakeholders. We are committed to sustainability in energy conservation, recycling, proper treatment and disposal of waste, health and safety practices, employee wellbeing and local community development.
With a group philosophy of "Zero Harm, Zero Discharge & Zero Waste", we have developed the Vedanta Sustainability Framework with the standards of internationally recognized institutions such as ICMM, IFC, OECS, UNEP etc. Our framework covers four crucial areas; Governance, Environment, Health & Safety and Social Performance. We have also engaged an independent, external consultant for periodic reviews to measure the effectiveness and implementation of our program.
