Committed to transparency
At Rio Tinto, we believe that transparency makes good business sense.
“We publish this report on a voluntary basis, as part our commitment to tax transparency,” said Chris.
Rio Tinto pioneered the practice of corporate tax transparency in 2010 and has been recognised as best-practice in tax reporting and transparency among multinational companies.
The disclosures contained in our Taxes paid report are consistent with our support for the principles of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). The report also includes information required to be disclosed under the Australian Voluntary Tax Transparency Code and the UK Large Business Tax Compliance requirements.
Rio Tinto’s tax planning conforms to our corporate values and our global code of business conduct, The way we work. Integrity is a core business value, and we aim to act fairly, honestly and consistently in what we say and do.
