Our business

Our business

Rio Tinto is a leading global mining and metals company.

With headquarters in the UK, our Group comprises Rio Tinto plc – a London and New York Stock Exchange-listed company, and Rio Tinto Limited – which is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, with a dual listed companies structure.

Under this structure, the two companies are managed as a single economic unit, even though both companies continue to be separate legal entities with separate share listings and share registers.

Rio Tinto focuses on finding, mining, processing and marketing the Earth’s mineral resources to supply the metals and minerals that help the world to grow while delivering strong and sustainable shareholder returns. Our major products are aluminium, copper, diamonds, gold, industrial minerals (borates, titanium dioxide and salt), iron ore, thermal and metallurgical coal and uranium.

This 50,000-strong workforce, across around 35 countries, pulls together as a powerful team committed to getting the best out of our operations.
