At Rio Tinto, our materials are essential for the low-carbon transition. Aluminium for lightweight cars. Copper to help things work more efficiently – from renewables to the power in your home. Iron ore for the steel in our electricity infrastructure. Lithium for electric vehicles and battery storage. We work in 35 countries – in mines, smelters and refineries, as well as in sales offices, data centres, research and development labs and with artificial intelligence. The transition to a low carbon world offers a unique opportunity for us to grow, and to play an important role in tackling this global challenge.
“We’re aiming to achieve a 50% reduction in our scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030, and NetZero by 2050. To achieve these targets, we will need to take genuine actions. We must switch to renewables at scale and at pace, electrify everything we can, work across our entire value chain and accelerate the development of new technology. Long duration energy storage is key to reaching NetZero carbon emissions.”
