Under Vedanta’s Waste-to-Wealth drive, BALCO is continuously striving towards its endeavor to achieve 100 % fly ash utilization. BALCO has been constantly pursuing to achieve Vedanta’s larger vision of being the ESG leader and setting benchmarks in the industry. BALCO is already associated with Cement industries in the vicinity through road mode and is seeking to achieve economies of scale and enterprise solution, which is environment friendly as well as costeffective. Recently, BALCO has ventured into supplying the conditioned fly ash through rake. It is the first ever CFA Rake of Vedanta’s Aluminium Sector and has been dispatched to Ambuja Cement (Lafarge Holcim India). As the global manufacturing principles rapidly evolve to become more sustainable, there are immense opportunities in the future for industrial collaboration to foster circular economy.
BALCO is the first industry in Chhattisgarh state and one among a few industries in the country to offer growth opportunities to the members of transgender community. The induction of four transgender members is just the starting of a long journey of establishing global benchmarks towards creating a highly inclusive and diverse workplace.
BALCO is committed to follow the path of transforming workplace for good and consistently strives to undertake endeavors that expedite and strengthen this transformation process. On the heels of this notion, the transgender members were inducted in the BALCO family by conducting a workshop that witnessed participation of more than 400 employees, exemplifying the high acceptance of transgender community in our workplace.
The initiative is a step towards introducing a social change in the society towards creating an environment of equality, nondiscrimination and equal opportunities for all. Talent has no classification on the basis of caste, creed or gender and if acknowledged rightly can contribute towards the relentless growth and progress of nation.
BALCO has launched a futuristic initiative – XR experience zone which will showcase AR, VR and MR technologies based training center. For first module we are launching an interactive learning Zone for Safety, which is a two pronged attempt to fulfil our major commitments. Leveraging VR will enable us to create immersive, intuitive and engaging learning platform while providing a safe environment for training. It will also enable easy data management, effective training and engagement of workers in safety induction using digital technology.
