Our core values underpin our vision of zero harm to people and the environment.
Our sustainable development model has four guiding principles that inform all planning and implementation:
The Vedanta Sustainable Development Framework was rolled out in FY2012-13. Since then it has continuously evolved to remain in step with emerging global standards, varying local contexts and evolving stakeholder expectations.
Over the years, it has served as an effective tool to unify Vedanta’s sustainability approach across diverse geographies and businesses. While the framework works as a standard, it also allows flexibility to fine-tune responses in dealing with local challenges and sensitivities.
The Framework governs conduct in all of Vedanta’s businesses, every decision taken involves sieving through the indicators of the framework to ensure we remain safe, ethical and transparent at all times.
To ensure compliance with the Framework, Vedanta has an internal risk management tool called the Vedanta Sustainability Assurance Programme (VSAP)
