“We live in unprecedented times, which put to test the collective strength of our characters as individuals and businesses… we are working closely with our stakeholders to re-imagine a sustainable future through smart mining,” Hindustan Zinc said in the report.

“Our sustainability goals for 2025 are the lighthouse around which we will plan all our activities over the next five years,” it said.

The company said that it has deployed smart, interconnected machines in its WiFi enabled underground mines, which transmit data in real time. This allows for better planning and faster decision-making, while reducing overall downtimes.

Technology is also enabling the Hindustan Zinc to enhance safety in its underground mines, it said.

“In more high-risk zones, we operate drills and loaders from safe, remote locations. Further, we monitor all our despatches through GPS, as well as movement of men and machines, which minimises the possibilities of collision,” it said.

Deployment of these cutting-edge technologies comes at a significant financial cost, but the company views it as an investment in sustainability, which will provide significant returns over the medium to long term, it added.
