Rio Tinto

As Queensland’s largest energy user and major Gladstone employer and manufacturer, Rio Tinto is the first big industry signatory to a multi-signatory statement positioning Central Queensland as one of the first regions in the world to benefit from the massive growth in demand for renewable energy.

In partnering with the Queensland Government, Rio Tinto will use their experience to help deliver a future green industry for Queensland whilst realising their own decarbonisation commitments. With a unique, integrated aluminium business in Queensland, from bauxite mining through to finished metal production, Rio Tinto is committed to a coordinated approach to new energy which will allow them to thrive in a global- carbon economy.
