Our 71,000 people work in more than 40 countries across six continents, including in some of the most difficult terrains and climates. We are strongly represented in Australia and North America, and also have significant businesses in Asia, Europe, Africa and South America.
With headquarters in the UK, our Group comprises Rio Tinto plc – a London and New York Stock Exchange listed company, and Rio Tinto Limited – which is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.
This global presence, and our expertise in technology and marketing, enables us to supply the right product, at the right quality, at the right time.
Our businesses include open pit and underground mines, mills, refineries, smelters and power stations – including a significant hydropower portfolio – as well as a number of research and service facilities. We also own and operate infrastructure that takes our products to our customers, including railways, ports and ships.
Products That Make Modern Life Work
From our diverse portfolio, we supply the metals and minerals that help the world to grow.
Our major products are aluminium, copper, diamonds, thermal and metallurgical coal, uranium, gold, industrial minerals (borax, titanium dioxide and salt) and iron ore.
Our metals and minerals are transformed into end-products that contribute to higher living standards and economic development. We are present at every point in the development cycle, from the iron ore that builds the fundamental infrastructure of our cities, to the copper and borates in the smartphones that keep us connected.
Construction, communication, recreation, transport, healthcare and renewable energy: all these industries, and many more, rely on the supply of metals and minerals we produce.
Under our Group-wide organisational structure, our five product groups – Aluminium, Copper, Diamonds & Minerals, Energy and Iron Ore – are supported by our Exploration and Technology & Innovation groups.
At Rio Tinto, sustainable development is integrated into everything we do. Our operations give us the opportunity to bring shared value to the communities, regions and countries in which we work.
We bring together our operational, technical and sustainable development expertise at the global level, and work in collaboration with our stakeholders to deliver substantial and lasting benefits at the local level.
Our responsible approach to mineral development ensures we gain and maintain our licence to operate. It means we provide confidence to our stakeholders, and improve our access to the mineral resources, people and capital we need.
It also gives us the opportunity to plan, implement and deliver sustainable contributions to social wellbeing, environmental stewardship and economic prosperity, within our strong governance systems. By continually engaging with all our stakeholders – who include communities, governments, employees, customers, suppliers and investors – we turn opportunity into advantage. The relationships we build help us to solve business and technical challenges, and contribute to society’s transition to sustainable development.
