Providing tools for our teams on the ground
Our approach to sustainable development is guided by our global code of business conduct, The way we work, and is reinforced by our policies on health, safety, environment and communities, diversity and inclusion, human rights, product stewardship, transparency and business integrity.
We use a range of tools, procedures and management systems to ensure our projects, operations and expansions are appropriately planned and implemented to maximise our contribution to sustainable development.
Rio Tinto’s Sustainability Committee oversees, on behalf of the board, the management processes, standards and strategies that are designed to manage key risks, and achieve compliance with our responsibilities and commitments. The Committee also ensures our approach is consistent with Rio Tinto’s vision and values.
