Demonstrating leadership in health, safety and environmental sustainability

The commodities we produce are the building blocks of the modern world

From the iron ore and metallurgical coal that create steel for construction, the nickel powering the electric transport revolution, to the copper required for renewable infrastructure.

In doing so, we can also make a significant contribution to the societies we operate in – through the jobs we create, the communities we support, the taxes we pay – and be well-positioned to deliver long-term value to all of our stakeholders.
