Chairman-cum-Managing Director's Message
It gives me immense pleasure in releasing the Second Sustainability Report of the company encapsulating
our performance during 2011-12 and 2012-13.
It is a matter of great pride for us, that we pioneered the adoption of concepts of Sustainable Development
(SD) in the steel industry through green initiatives in various manufacturing processes during inception stage
itself, and took up the motto of "One tree for every ton of steel" even before our project was commissioned.
Sustainability is a journey, and over the years it has been our constant endeavour to establish clear linkage
between the aspects of SD and our business imperatives as we harnessed the green technologies at every
stage of production and improved our operational efficiencies to create a competitive advantage. The thrust
on sustainability and business continuity saw adoption of novel and emerging approaches for comprehensive
address of various facets of SD through Annual Sustainability plans; deployment of Enterprise Risk
Management; product diversification; raw material securitization; and efforts towards growth & expanding
geographical presence, to name a few.
The years 2011-12 and 2012-13 were further characterised by diligent efforts towards long term sustainability
of business, such as: 

Close follow up with various State Governments for allocation of Iron Ore mines resulting in LOI for an
Iron Ore mine in Bhilwara by the Govt. of Rajasthan. 

Physical completion of major units under the expansion programme to double the capacity to 6.3 mtpa;
commencement of production from new Blast Furnace; commissioning of supporting facilities of expansion
and finalization of initial activities for various modernisation schemes. The roll out of new products
would commence progressively from 2013-14 onwards, enhancing our presence in the steel market. 

MoU with Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd., for manufacture of transmission line towers; and MoU
with Indian Railways for manufacture of rail axles and wheels, to establish ready markets for value
added products after current expansion & modernization.

Our benign belief has been that business has both an opportunity and an obligation to make the world better.
Over the years, this belief has fuelled our investment not only for our business growth, but also for supporting
the communities around us. We have made notable progress in creating sustainable assets for the benefit
of the society by making a meaningful difference in their life through our various CSR programmes. This is
the power of sustainability as it encourages engagement and, in turn, engagement breeds sustainability.
Our committed performance was well recognized by the various industries and Governmental bodies, as we
were bestowed with "3 Leaves Rating" by Centre for Science & Environment under the Green Rating Project;
Leadership award for Green Manufacturing by Frost & Sullivan; "Strong Commitment" in CII-ITC Award for
performance on Sustainability; "Significant Achievement" in CII-EXIM Bank Award for Business Excellence
2013; and capped with "Excellent MoU Rating" by the Govt. of India for the years 2011-12 & 2012-13. I am
grateful for the support, encouragement & cooperation of the various stakeholders in our journey towards


With these encouraging signs, I am sure that we would continue to
move forward swiftly in our quest for creating a sustainable future.
Sustainability will be at the nexus of transformation in the years to
come. We need to achieve our bold goals by pushing ourselves
with aggressive targets and commitments, re-defining our
performance guided by values of utmost safety, integrity,
accountability, transparency and team work.

Growth potential at Visakhapatnam: RINL has a land bank of around 20.3 Mt expansion facilities: Commissioning activities of major facilities commenced in 2012-13 with commissioning of the new BF-3. towards business diversification and raw material securitization by signing MOUs with Andhra Pradesh Mineral Development Corporation and Indian Railways. Energy efficiency has been the strength of RINL since inception. RINL has a unique portfolio of risks and opportunities. market development. one standing EOI has been kept on Company’s Website for exploring new sources of Coal supply. The infrastructure of two major ports in the vicinity and connectivity by rail and National Highway coupled with projected growth in infrastructural development in the country makes expansion at Visakhapatnam a highly attractive proposition. 7 . RINL’s financial performance hinges critically on input costs as it is the only main steel producer in India without captive mines for Iron Ore and Coal. Efforts are also being made to develop other sources of supply like OMDC. framework aspects related to identification. initiatives for enhancing employee involvement.

Solid Energy of New Zealand for supply of Coal. Power generation capacity of 14 MW by utilizing waste heat in COB-IV was commissioned in the year. As part of the policy. Expansion works for 7.12 in Oxygen line at PRS-3 derailed the commissioning sequence and delayed the commissioning and production from downstream units by more than a year. This is done through an elaborate Sustainability Planning exercise carried out annually.e.06. Logan & Kanahwa and Alpha Coal of USA.
