Rio Tinto
is a leading international mining group
headquartered in the UK, combining Rio Tinto
plc, a London listed public company, and Rio
Tinto Limited, which is listed on the
Australian Securities Exchange. Rio Tinto’s
business is finding, mining and processing
mineral resources. Major products are
aluminium, copper, diamonds, energy (coal
and uranium), gold, industrial minerals
(borates, titanium dioxide, salt, talc), and iron
ore. Activities span the world but are strongly
represented in Australia and North America
with significant businesses in South America,
Asia, Europe and southern Africa. The Group’s
objective is to maximize the overall long term
return to shareholders through a strategy of
investing in large, cost competitive mines,
driven by the quality of each opportunity, not
the choice of commodity. Wherever Rio Tinto
operates, the health and safety of its
employees is the first priority. The Group
seeks to contribute to sustainable
development. It works as closely as possible
with host countries and communities,
respecting their laws and customs and
ensuring a fair share of benefits and
opportunities.
Views expressed in “Review” are not
necessarily those of Rio Tinto. For
convenience, the expression Rio Tinto is used
to describe both Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto
Limited and companies within the Group,
even though these companies are generally
separate and independently managed.
