We support the goal of preventing the exploitation of minerals for the purpose of funding or supporting human rights violations. We are working with our supply chain to comply with Section 1502 of the US Dodd-Frank Act.
Responsible mineral development, free from conflict and corruption, provides livelihoods and enhances regional economic stability.
Rio Tinto supports and respects human rights consistent with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and actively seeks to ensure we are not complicit in human rights abuses. The way we work, our global code of business conduct, supported by our Human rights policy, provides the framework for our approach to business integrity, human rights, and governance. We believe it also provides the framework to avoid financing or supporting conflict either directly or through our supply chain.
