On 13th June, Vedanta will be awarded the Golden peacock, an award instituted by the World Environment Foundation (WEF) in the year 1991. The jury headed by Justice P N Bhagwati, former Chief Justice of India and member of UN Human Rights Commission chose Vedanta, for setting high standards of environment management.
These high standards are a result of Vedanta’s claims of running a zero discharge refinery and a recently obtained ISO 14001 certification, an internationally accepted standard for effective environment management system.

Mr. P Abhraham who is on the Board of several hydropower and dam companies has been chairing the Ministry of Environment and Forests’ Expert Appraisal Committee on River Valley and Hydropower projects. There is clear conflict of interest here between Abraham’s role as director of companies and as this most crucial regulatory position in the Ministry of Environment and Forests. Over the past two years, there has been at least six occasions when a project of the companies where Abraham is a director has come for clearance before the committee he chairs.
