Vedanta is committed to making a contribution, to delivering sustainable and responsible growth, which creates value for our shareholders and other stakeholders.

  • Our approach to sustainable development is built on four pillars:

    • responsible stewardship;
    • building strong relationships;
    • adding and sharing value; and
    • strategic communications.
  • These have been developed in line with:

    • our core values;
    • internal and external sustainability imperatives (such as materiality);
    • the 10 Principles of the United Nations Compact;
    • the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations; and
    • standards set by International Finance Corporation, ICMM and OECD.

Responsible stewardship, building strong relationships and adding and sharing value are addressed through the processes and activities we undertake to ensure our future, from securing the health and safety of our people, to making economic, socioeconomic and social contributions to the communities and regions in which we operate, to managing our environmental footprint.

Strategic communications reflect our commitment to becoming a more transparent and responsible corporate citizen, in addition to highlighting our emphasis on principles of community dialogue and mutual respect, including free prior informed consent to access natural resources.
