This is the highest number of five-star ratings awarded to any company in India for all major mineral extraction
December 8: Fifteen of UltraTech Cement’s Limestone mines have been awarded a five-star rating for sustainable mine management by the Ministry of Mines and the Indian Bureau of Mines. The five-star certificates were given by Shri Pralhad Joshi, Hon’ble Union Minister of Mines, at a recently held ceremony along with the National Conclave on Mines & Minerals in New Delhi.
This was awarded for the last three years (2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20), with a total of 30 such 5 Star rating awards. This is the highest number of five-star ratings awarded to any company in India for all major minerals such as Bauxite, Copper, Iron ore, Manganese, Lead & Zinc and Limestone.
Conceptualised by the Ministry of Mines, the Star ratings are based on the adoption of best practices for the exhaustive and universal implementation of sustainable development framework in mining. A five-star rating, the highest in the rating scheme, is given to mines that performed best on parameters such as scientific and efficient mining, compliance of approved production, zero waste mining, environment protection, steps taken for progressive and final mine closure, green energy sourcing, land, adoption of international standards, local communities engagement and welfare programmes, resettlement and other positive social impacts.
