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.
