Growth & Innovation
The Growth & Innovation group operates through the entire life cycle of Rio Tinto’s mines and assets, creating value through exploration, project development and technical excellence.
Growth & Innovation works in close partnership with Rio Tinto’s product groups, and is accountable for finding, shaping, developing and delivering a portfolio of options for Tier 1 assets. It also focuses on finding safer, smarter and more efficient ways to manage Rio Tinto’s resources and operations.
The group was formed as part of a reorganisation of Rio Tinto’s company structure and executive team in July 2016, designed to help drive efficiency and optimise performance. It brings together much of the company’s Exploration and Technology & Innovation remit.
