GROWTH WITH RESPONSIBILITY

CORPORTE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

SMG is deeply committed to sustainable development and it pursues this through the effective management of health, safety, environment and community activities

Community

At SMG we take our community responsibility very seriously. We are proactive in responding to the needs and aspirations of the communities in which we operate, because we believe we have a decisive role to play in the social, economic and environmental growth of these communities.

We actively support projects that drive socio-economic empowerment and sustainable development with the priorities of the community at its center. This in turn enables an environment conducive to the mutual growth of the community as well as our organisation.

Environment

At SMG we have in place a variety of environmental management systems that are focussed on efficient energy and water use and conservation, land resource management, air emission and hazardous waste management and rehabilitation and closure of mines.

These systems are designed to minimize the environmental impact of the group’s operations through policy, planning, implementation and monitoring.

SMG is committed to continuous improvement of our sustainability centric business practice through the integrated use of innovation and research in design and processes.

SMG conducts drives to clean streams and water bodies chocked with hazardous non bio-degradable waste.

Health & Safety

The health and well-being of not just our employees and contractors, but the community at large remains our highest priority and we are committed to ensuring that safety and health of all stakeholders is never compromised.

To achieve this, we:

  • Comply with the local health and safety laws and regulations, going beyond statutory requirements to ensure the safety of our workforce and those who come under the jurisdiction of our business activities.
  • Frequently conduct health and safety activities in order to prevent work-related accidents and injuries.
  • Contribute to the creation of a safe and harmonious society by emphasizing activities that make health and safety a top priority in all of our business activities and the communities we operate within.

SMG has conducted health and dental check –ups for the communities living around its mines in Goa.
