About Rio Tinto:

Aluminium for lightweight cars. Copper to help things work more efficiently – from renewables to the power in your home. Iron ore for the steel in our electricity infrastructure. Lithium for electric vehicles and battery storage. And many of the materials Rio Tinto produces are essential for the things in everyday life too: Borates that help crops grow, titanium for paint – and diamonds that celebrate the best things in life.

Rio Tinto works in 35 countries – in mines, smelters and refineries, as well as in sales offices, data centers, research and development labs and with artificial intelligence. The transition to a low carbon world offers a unique opportunity for Rio Tinto to grow, and to play an important role in tackling this global challenge. They know they have a major carbon footprint, significant scope 1 and 2 emissions and material indirect scope 3 emissions. They must switch to renewables at scale, electrify everything they can electrify, work across their entire value chain and accelerate the development of new technology.

Rio Tinto was founded in 1873, on the banks of the Rio Tinto river in Andalusia, Spain. They are proud of everything we have achieved. At Rio Tinto, they know our future is even brighter than our past.

Smart partnerships:

Rio Tinto is always open to new ideas about the best way to share value from mining projects in a way that preserves and grows investor returns, creates lasting value for host governments and communities and provides the metals the world needs in an environmentally sustainable way.

To do this, they forge innovative partnerships with technology partners, local suppliers, governments, community groups, industry leaders and NGOs.
