Providing materials the world needs in a responsible way

The materials we provide are needed in everyday life and for many low-carbon technologies. But we know that the way we produce these materials is just as important as the minerals and metals themselves.

We’re entrusted with accessing the world’s essential materials and making them available for society’s use. These resources are finite, and we recognise our responsibility to extract full value from the materials we provide, while continuously finding ways to better mitigate impacts on people and the environment.
