Pioneering progress

As pioneers in mining and metals, we produce materials essential to human progress. Iron ore for steel. Aluminium for cars and smartphones. Copper for wind turbines, electric cars and the pipes that bring water to our home. Borates that help crops grow, titanium for paint – and diamonds that celebrate the best things in life. We operate with a pioneering spirit. We’ve developed some of the world’s largest and best quality mines and operations, and our people work in around 35 countries across six continents.

We’ve pioneered technological innovations, such as our Mine of the Future™ programme and our low-CO2 aluminium from hydropower. And we’ve paved the way in areas such as safety, tax transparency and legacy management. We continue to pioneer progress for a better future. Through research and innovation, we’re helping meet the needs of society in a growing and changing world. We produce essential materials responsibly. Our activities help economies grow and communities prosper. And it’s all underpinned by an absolute commitment to safety – for our people, contractors, and the communities in which we operate – and to minimising our environmental impact. We partner for human progress.

We partner with auto industry leaders in developing alloys that are enabling a new generation of lighter, fuel-efficient vehicles. We partner with peers in organisations like the International Council on Mining & Metals to seek better ways to operate. And we work with NGOs worldwide to address some of mankind’s most fundamental challenges: how to grow more food, make better use of water, extend access to healthcare, and reconcile enhanced living standards while minimising impact on the planet. We also partner with the communities in which we operate, sharing the wealth and benefits of what we do with local people, through employment, skills and education, and local economic development initiatives that aim to build self-sustaining communities long after we’re gone.

Be valued, be included

No matter how they may differ, our people share one thing in common. It’s a belief that work is more rewarding when we are accepted and valued for our differences, not judged by them. It’s a belief that regardless of how we look, speak or think, we all have something to contribute and it’s this contribution that makes for a great organisation and fulfilling career.

Only by working together, pooling our strengths, can we create an environment in which innovation and creativity can grow and individuals thrive.
