What is Sustainable Development?


"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
from the World Commission on Environment and Developments (the Brundtland Commission) report Our Common Future (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1987).

The 3 Pillars Of Sustainable Development

People, Planet and Profit" succinctly describe the goal of sustainability.

Challenges Of Sustainable Development In India


Poverty Health and Sustainability Unsustainable Patterns Of Production & Consumption Protecting and Managing The Natural Resource Base The Globalizing World and The Challenges Posed By It

Sustainable Development & Resource Sector


In an increasingly crowded world, with more people demanding more resources, we need projects that: Maximize the benefits to society at every stage of the process Minimize the negative impacts through the life cycle Develop projects through consent of those affected rather than through coercion; and Are broadly accountable, through increasingly effective governance systems at local, state, national and international levels.

Scientific And Sustainable Mining


Re-Cycleable Minerals Minerals are elements of nature and are therefore re-cycleable. Today metals are being re-cycled upto 80-90%.

Contd..
Technological Developments Development of nano-technologies leading to production of light,low-density and high strength materials to replace steel and other metals. carbon nanotubes, for eg. Sustainable Mining Research Network (SMRN) An institutional frame work for a constant interaction between the industry, community, government, environmentalists and all affected stakeholders.

Universal Soution?? Take It With A Pinch Of Salt!!


There are few, if any, universal solutions. We have different techniques of mining, the systems in place to respond to development, radically different ecosystems, and great variation in affected cultures. What works in one place does not necessarily work somewhere else.

Challenges For Oil & Gas Sector


Adequate and judicious usage of the resources as THEY ARE LIMITED. Efficient measures at stages of fractional distillation and thereafter are carried consciously. Less Pollution during all intermediate processes of throughput. Adhering to government protocols and policies with utmost responsibility.

Contd..
Least wastage at production level, and provision for waste fuel management in reusing it for crude oil distillation. Maintaining hygiene, health precautions and other preventive measures for avoiding hazardous events.

BPCL Sustainable ReportKey postulates


Production of Environment friendly Lube Oils (Ultra Low Sulphur) and Clean Automotive Fuels. Improvement in Energy Efficiency of the Refinery & distribution operation by use of new technologies & modern instrumentation. Treating effluent water, recycling and re-using it and rain water harvesting. Minimize / eliminate fugitive emissions Provision of high efficiency Sulphur Recovery Units (99 % efficiency)
