Company information

Rio Tinto is a leading global mining and materials company.

We operate in 35 countries where we produce iron ore, copper, aluminium, critical minerals and other materials needed for the global energy transition and for people, communities, and nations to thrive.

We have been mining for over 150 years and operate with knowledge built up across generations and continents.

Our purpose is finding better ways to provide the materials the world needs – striving for innovation and continuous improvement to produce materials with low emissions and to the right environmental, social and governance standards.
