Fifteen of UltraTech Cement’s Limestone mines have been awarded a five-star rating for sustainable mine management by the Ministry of Mines and Indian Bureau of Mines. Over the last three years, UltraTech Cement has received a total of 30 such five-star rating awards. This is the highest number of five-star ratings awarded to any company in India for all major minerals such as Bauxite, Copper, Iron ore, Manganese, Lead & Zinc and Limestone.

UltraTech Cement was awarded these certificates at the felicitation ceremony held along with the National Conclave on Mines & Minerals on 23 November 2021 at New Delhi. The five-star certificates were given by Mr. Pralhad Joshi, Hon'ble Union Minister of Mines.

Conceptualised by the Ministry of Mines, the star ratings are based on adoption of best practices for exhaustive and universal implementation of Sustainable Development Framework in mining. A five-star rating is given to mines which performed best in parameters such as scientific and efficient mining, compliance of approved production, zero waste mining, environment protection, steps taken for progressive and final mine closure, green energy sourcing, land, adoption of international standards, local communities engagement and welfare programmes, resettlement and other positive social impacts.
