Hindalco’s blueprint for sustainability
As a global metals business working across the aluminium and copper value chains with operations in 13 countries, sustainability is at the very core of Hindalco’s operations.
The span and width of Hindalco’s operations necessitate a holistic and well-rounded approach to sustainability that encompasses a variety of areas, like sustainable mining practices, energy conservation, recycling, environment-friendly disposal of industrial wastes, safety practices, socio-economic development of the communities around us and empowerment of our employees.
Resource sustainability and conservation
Our mining practices, regeneration activities and community engagement practices are geared towards minimising the environmental impact and maximising the socio-economic impact during the development of mines. Conservation of materials and energy is another focus area – critical for our business results as also for the environment. A lot of our R&D efforts are focused on this area.
"Hindalco’s sustainability report captures in detail our objectives and actions in pursuing sustainability-driven enduring growth. We strongly believe that there are no trade-offs between economic growth and socio-environmental footprint, if sustainability is placed firmly at the centre of our entire gamut of operations."
— Mr.D. Bhattacharya
