In many important applications, there are no low-carbon alternatives to steel, aluminium and copper; furthermore, these materials are essential to enable the low-carbon transition. The challenge is to produce them sustainably – not only with lower emissions, but also in a way that respects communities. I am personally committed to ensuring that Rio Tinto plays its part.

Group Executive, Strategy & Development

In 2021, we will continue to execute our climate strategy, working in partnership with other businesses, technology developers, investors, consumers and civil society. We also recognise the essential role of governments around the world to create the legal and regulatory certainty and incentives necessary for investment and innovation. We believe the best solutions will come from partnerships and global collaboration.
